    I was hoping if anyone could explain how to make .avi (XviD and DivX) files playable in FrontRow and Quicktime?

    Thanks in advance all!

    Go to http://www.divx.com/ and download the codec/player and you should be able to play .avi files in quicktime, not sure about front row though.

    Any video that you can play in Quicktime will play in Front Row. Go get the DivX codec to allow you to watch those movies in Quicktime. It'll carry over to Front Row.

    The only caveat with the posted solution is that it doesn't work for movies encoded with AC3...those crash quicktime/frontrow...one day a solution will crop up I suppose...
