    Hello;

    I am having some problems with Quicktime. First there's no sound in the movie and second I get a message saying that quicktime needs additional software, but it does not say which one. When I click continue it takes me to Apple page but it does not specify either which additional software I need. Any help?

    Thanx

    You're trying to play either a WMV file or an older AVI file.

    If it's the WMV file you can get a plug-in from flip4mac

    If it's the older .AVI file you will need a different piece of software to watch it.I forgot the name at the moment.

    It's an avi file... I get sound with other avi files but not with this one. Quicktime says I need a additional software but it doesnt specify which one

    Thanx

    Perian is a group of Quicktime codecs. VLC plays almost every video thrown at it :)

    Thanks very much

    No problem...in case you don't have it, I recommend VLC Player anyway...

    id like to watch tv shows (usually avi) on front row so i could use the remote, but im assuming front row only plays videos with quicktime (i actually haven't tried yet on new mbp and it's not with me now) .so 2 questions:
    1. am i right that front row plays only through quicktime or can i get it to use VLC?
    2. if i install this perian will that fix any problems im having playing avi on QT/front row?

    The Answer!

    to .avi's with no sound in Quicktime!

    http://trac.cod3r.com/a52codec/

    I've got all the other codecs Apple features; nothing worked.
    VLC works, but you can't edit; exports fail or crash VLC.

    Forget VLC.

    This works.
