    What type of Mini do you have? PPC or Intel?

    What version of OS X are you running?

    Kind of hard to tell without more info?

    The sound is always rubbish on avi anyway, you're not missing much.

    perhaps.

    sometimes even that doesn't do it.

    Probably the lack of ac3 codec. Here's one for QuickTime. Actually, It might be better if you just install Perian. That'll solve most video/audio problems.

    i have to dissagree there yogi. Avi files tend to need divx player to be installed in order for the sound to be transmitted.

    I have tons of AVI's and all work in Quicktime using the DivX codec component for Quicktime.

    It all depends on what codec they've been encoded with. DivX just happens to be the most common, because it offers the best quality at the lowest fle size (From what I've seen).

    Unfortunately, I've only ever come across one tool to help with this directly, but it's on PC. It would tell you exactly what codec you need to play a file.
    PC: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz, 2 GM RAM, Total 750 GB HDD, Windows Vista Business (For gaming), Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron (64-bit), Slackware 12 (For GTK# coding)
    Mac: 1.66GHz, 1GB RAM, 60GB HDD, Mini

    Perian tends to solve most problems.

    If that doesn't cut it, install VLC as well.
