    I'm having trouble playing some AVI files. Quicktime always says that the files are corrupt or that they ended prematurely. The files are segments of a 3-part whole. I keep retrying to get the files as new, but quicktime always says that they're corrupt. Is there any other program I can play them with or possibly repair them with?

    Well lets see:

    1) Divx Doctor II
    2) VLC
    3) MPlayer OSX

    Yeah well Those 3 applications helped me all the time.

    I would try using #2 or #3 before #1.

    Divx Doctor II is getting old... but for some Divx Files, i have only gotten it to change them into readable files...

    But yes, VLC and MPlayer Os X are good and *needed* for anyone who wants to play files that quicktime will not understand.

    MPlayer is by far the best one. I haven't encountered an .AVI that I couldn't play.

    I use MPlayer and it plays everything. I set it to open all vid files.
