    I'm looking for a player that will play avi's and other file formats. Quicktime doesn't play all avi's and my avi-to-mov converter turns some movies all green. Is there a good player out there?

    ive had the best luck with VLC. and after its last revision it doesnt get the voice off sync when you do other operations like it used to and i have had mplayer do.

    Is there anything else? Is there any add-ons for quicktime? VLC is fine except it has a lot of lag time while waiting for a movie to start. Also on VLC while trying to skip ahead further in a movie, it just sits and processes forever (1-2 min) before actually playing. Mplayer is good, except that you can't fast forwards or rewind. Why can't Apple just make quicktime play these formats?
