install divX codec, or download DivX doctor II, which cam convert .avi files to .mov.
make search in google for "codecs for quicktime" and install everyting you can find.

what happens when you try to open the files with quicktime?
do you get pixelated video with no sound or get an error massage saying file type not supported?

no it just stops. displaynig a filename. it was encoded from camcoder using mainconcept dv codec. which i can not find for mac os x. i installed ffmpegx wich using a lot of codecs but even this program cannot open this file and even get it info. if i'm not mistaken *** is all about this Mainconcept mpeg2 codec. mac os x adobe premiere 6.5 cannot open this file to =) weird but ..... ma be there is no way to open it.
