    Wondering if anyone knows of a piece of software that will determine the type of AVI file I have. I guess tells me what type of encoding it is.

    I have some AVI files that will not stream to my xbox360 with Rivet or Connect360 and it's really pissing me off so I'm just trying to see if they are just the wrong type of encoding or what.

    Thanks!

    QuickTime will also tell you the video codec the file uses in the Window menu option "Show Movie Inspector." So does getting info on the file in Finder.
