          ...

          dunno. avi playback on macs has always been a little broken. if it works, great! if not then look for the mpeg or mov versions.

                  The avi may be corrupt or if its DivX encoded you may have to recalculate the index for it to work properly, if you are missing even a little bit of the file. However it probably wouldn't work on a Win32 machine either - so I shouldn't think its a just Mac problem.

                  www.divx.com - "Da Player" I think it is called, not sure if there is a Mac version - worth a try.

                    i have never been able to get .avi files working in quicktime. i think they're divx encoded. there are divx codecs for mac but they suck fatty. it's media player or nothing.
