Whenever I try to open an avi file it opens black. I have about 30 recorded avi files that i want to use in iMovie. I've tried installing quicktime codecs from several sites, including perian. I've tried opening it in 2 different players. I've tried converting it to several different formats so I'm kinda at loss of what to do. Terminal: Macintosh:~ samsexton$ file /Users/samsexton/Desktop/\=osk\=\ movie/BF2142\ 2008-03-21\ 01-02-16-49.avi /Users/samsexton/Desktop/=osk= movie/BF2142 2008-03-21 01-02-16-49.avi: RIFF (little-endian) data, AVI, 400 x 300, >30 fps, video: uncompressed Any advice or suggestions would be great. Regards, Optix.
