    Download perian. It has all the codecs you'll need to play .avi files in quicktime.

    Perian is an add-on to QuickTime, not a separate player.

    Also realize that on a Mac, QuickTime is not merely a player as on Windows, but powers a huge amount of the graphics subsystem on your Mac.

    Perian and DivX solve different problems, but both enable the play of .avi files within QuickTime-compatible applications.
