    Use Perian for tons of codecs, and it should fix your AVI issue. Flip4Mac works for WMV,

    What you probably were missing is a required audio codec, like AC3.

    Like psychofreak said, intall Perian and Flip4Mac, and QuickTime will play almost anything... with sound ;)

    Yeah. People need to understand that .avi and .mov files are just "containers" for the video format. The codecs makes the difference :cool:
