I downloaded a DVDRip of Sleepless In Seattle but there is no sound when I try to watch it. It is a .avi file, and Quicktime told me I may need to download a codec to make it work but it didn't tell me which one. I tried reopening the file but the error message won't appear again.

Anyone know what to do?

Thanks!

Flip4Mac I think could help you, or download VLC media player, which is fab.

VLC is a must app just to have, it will try (and usually succeed) in playing ->any<- video file.

but, just to warn you, pirating things is against the forum rule and you can get into trouble, just try to keep that part to yourself.

Yep! It worked! Although I still think I will download VLC!
