    Try vlc (video lan control).

    It will open pretty much anything on a mac, properly. Also you may want to make sure that you install the divx codec. Both are free and should be easy to google. I can now watch most avis.

    i managed!

    I also had issues, installed a number of tools and codecs, including Perian, but I finally managed when I downloaded AC3 Codec.component and placed it in the QuickTime library - maybe I had too much stuff installed to get Perian to work, but the AC3 - problem solved!
