    I downloaded a movie which is a avid file just recently on my mac (which is a standard macbook NOT pro)

    But it wouldnt work in quicktime so i download 2 different programs to play the avid file but all of them seem to only work if you have a macbook 10.4 version which i dont.

    Is there any program that i can download to help run the avid file on my macbook or to change the avid file to something else so i can run it on quicktime???

    You say you are not running 10.4, what OS are you running?

    VLC can run most anything... and with Perian and Flip4Mac installed with QT, I haven't found anything that won't run on my MBP

    Did you try VLC? It plays every file type I can think of.
