    Maybe the .avi file cannot be read by Compressor, thus maybe try Perian and see, if installing that helps Compressor reading the .avi file.
    If that does not work, and in order to find out, what may be wrong with your .avi video, you can use the following three applications to analyse a sample video file.
    When done, you can use the "Report" (VideoSpec) and "Export" (Media Inspector) button to export a report,
    attachable to your next post via the [​IMG] button.
    In MediaInfo you have to go to the Menu Bar, select View > Text and copy the text via CMD+A > CMD+C and paste it via CMD+V into your next post.

    Because it should, as it enables QT (Compressor is connected to QT) to read Divx/Xvid encoded video using the .avi container.
