    I've downloaded an .avi video and can't get it to play. QuickTime says there's an error in the program, MPlayer closes the file as soon as I try to play it, and VLC says it can't find a codec for fourcc code "undf". I have the latest versions of all those players, on OS 10.2.8.

    Any ideas?

    I have DivX and 3ivx, and it doesn't play. After further investigation I discovered that it's a Matroska file, which I had never heard of beforehand, and I managed to get it to play eventually.

    Put then came the curse of P2P - it's got the wrong filename and isn't the movie I wanted :(
