    I just downloaded a couuple .avi movies and niether have any sound when I play them. I've used both quicktime and DivX to play them, but no luck. I figure I need to find another coded but don't know which one.

    Ideas?

    Thanks

    Perian should work for you. It will allow QuickTime to properly play avi files and other formats.

    Try removing all of that and just installing Perian. Then restart. Perian includes all those codecs I believe and should be able to play all .avi files.
