    Howdy Folks:

    took some advice from here and downloaded Transmission- Quicktime files [MM].avi - when I click on it - Quicktime opens and then says some files missing may be able to retrieve from web site

    I have many choices - anyone care to lead me to what I should have to watch these

    Cheers thanks

    avi's are such a pain.

    i'd just convert it with iSquint then drop it in your itunes.

    (and transmission does rock)

    google VLC and download it. It plays almost all video files without codecs or having to convert anything.

    vlc. will work (better anyhow) playing avi's. (it might skip or the sound might go off synce< depending on how good your computer is)

    ...but i still think if you have the drive space and want to keep it neat away itunes. isuinting those into a itunes happy format is the way to go.

    feel it out for what you want to do.

    (and yes you have the right idea what i meant)

    I had this same problem. I am so frustrated! For every video I play I practically have to download a separate player! I had to download windows media player for some stupid wmv files, and now this for avi! Why can't they equip a computer with a player that plays MOST popular video types?!

    Well let's start with this, are you still using QuickTime 6? I haven't seen that dialogue since I last used QuickTime 6 because 7 just says Error opening movie when it can't open something.

    Next, download Perian (http://perian.org/) and Flip4Mac (http://www.flip4mac.com/wmv_download.htm).

    If that doesn't work, VLC.

    And if it still doesn't work, download ffmpegX (http://www.ffmpegx.com/), drop the file into the window and tell us the codecs it uses.
