    Hello all!



    is there a way to view .avi video files in front row?

    either through itunes or dvd?


    i dunno.


    thanks,

    I was hoping Flip4mac would work, but it doesn't.

    Do a search for Mplayer OS X.

    I think it might work.

    Have you bothered to download and install the DivX 6 codec? It is available in release form for PPC Macs and in beta for Intel Macs.

    neither flip4mac nor mplayerosx would help...flip4mac being the wmv plugin, and mplayerosx being a frontrow-incompatible program to play avis.

    divx codec seems to work fine though...bit choppy sometimes..

    the beta plugin worked just fine, for about half an hour until it was completely out of sync!

    beta behaviors granted.....



    but thanks!

    You can always convert the files to something more "Front Row-friendly" with ffmpegX.
