    You likely can't play it with Quicktime. Download VLC. It plays most anything.

    VLC is awesome. If you want to play everything with Quicktime, well, it takes a bit of work :)

    Look for the Flip4Mac WMV Quicktime Component, which will play Windows Media, and (what you are referring to) the DivX Quicktime component. Those two will cover most of the movie formats out there. Ignore the stupid DivX Player, as it is crap.

    I'd just like to add my vote for VLC.

    An awesome application - completely fuss-free.
