I have a .avi file I can't get to play in Quicktime. Can anyone help me please?
Which version of Quicktime are you using, Quicktime 7.2 supports .avi as standard (I think)
Umm 7.5 I believe.
What codec was used in the avi container? Try installing the Perian plug-in to see if that provides a codec that you currently don't have.
Ok, I installed Pernian, but I'm still getting no sound. How come?
Try VLC media player, if it does not play in that then you might have a duff .avi file.
Quicktime is just inefficient at playing AVI's -- and it deffinitly cannot edit them.
Use VLC Media Player for AVI Playback
With Perian & WM Components installed, Front Row, and iDVD should be able to handle them (just to play or burn) but don't try to seek to different spots in the video (I found that's when Quicktime crashes)
If you have quicktime pro and would like to use it's easy trimming feature, Drag the file into iSquint (third party app) and convert it to ipod format -- quicktime will then be able to read, seek, and edit without problems.
VLC Media Player did the trick. Thanks guys.
