    Don't say VLC. VLC chokes this machine to death. 95% CPU usage. Frame rate is one per second. AVI files need to be played. Are there any codecs I can use with Quicktime v6.5? Or how about a different player? Quicktime seems to run smoothly on this machine. .MOV files play nicely. DVDs play fine. Can't do flash unfortunately. Any ideas?

    VLC. An older version though.

    It also depends on what codec is used with the .avi file, as that determines how many cycles are need to properly decode the video to display it.

    There is Perian, which gives you the ability to play some .avi files in QT Player.

    OS: I could play Divx/Xvid .avis quite fine on my iBook G4 1.07GHz with OS 10.3.6 and 10.4.
