    Need a converter for .avi files
    So I'm copying some movies and such from my friends PC for him, but they are all in .avi format, which wont play in Quicktime (basic).
    Are there any converters out there that you can suggest that can convert these .avis into a format that Quicktime can read? Free ones if possible, if not, I don't mind paying a bit for a good program that would fulfill my needs.

    Thanks in advance!

    Just install Perian to extend Quicktimes codec support

    Or play the files in VLC

    I second VLC. I use it to play everything, I hardly ever use Quicktime anymore.
