Hi all, still a bit of a noob so be gentle ,apologies if I'm posting this in the wrong place but I'm literally pulling my hair out and hoping someone out there can provide some help. Basically Im running. 10.6.8 everything running smooth,except playback/codec issues with QuickTime x. I don't seem to be able to open divx,xvid etc mainly avi files....now I know all about perian but ....when opening a file,qtx opens a small slim box with "loading movie" on it but it never plays,and the text just stays there.now I can play all my mp4 files, no problems..other players (plex,vlc,niceplayer) can play all my .avi files so there's nothing wrong there,I just always like qt and am dying to get this working. Annoying thing is..I had this all working perfectly,exact same system,but due to a hard drive fault, had to reinstall osx..and had this problem ever since...I ve tried installing,reinstalling perian..different versions of perian...downloaded a set of QuickTime components and installed those..but no joy...god knows what I've done wrong but I've run out of ideas....please please anyone help!!
