Hey folks,

Having trouble playing files with the extension .avi
when quicktime opens the file it says that "quicktime is missing software to play the file. necessary software may be available at the website"
just wondering if anyone knows which piece of software it is that i need to download.

Here is the link for the website quicktime sends me to for the software...

Any help as always would be appreciated

QUOTE Thanks
