.avi files are the WORST. I've tried Perian, 3ivx and Divx converters, "Divx Doctor II" , a VLC player, all things sworn to have worked on ANY avi files but none of them do!! avi' are an endless frustration. Why doesn't Apple lead the way in an innovation that once and for all just plain WORKS? I've tried erasing the avi extension and replacing it with .mov or .mpeg, but nothing seems to work. And what's wores are files with double extensions like .avi.mpg. What is that anyway? I thought that the .mpg second extension would at least get me in the door with quiktime, but the "Error could not open file" window comes up WITH NO EXPLANATION AS TO WHY!! This has got to be my biggest gripe with my iMac.......
