    I am having trouble watching some .avi files on my imac I have tried both quick time and real time players. Any suggestions?

    The files are on a external hard drive a freind is lending me. All of the other files on this drive I can access such as picture and audio files. But a couple of .avi files I can not view.

    When I try to play them the viewer will show the length of the file (say 10:23)
    and the timer will count when play is pushed but there is no audio of video.

    Thanks for the help
    T.S.

    How do I know what codec an .avi file is in?

    Because Perian and flip4mac are not working.
