I have recently had to re-install everything on my MacBook Pro and have encountered a problem in that the movies that worked before are now mute.
Initially after re-install Quick time came up totally black as well.
I have since downloaded the Xvid and the DivX extras (as I did before) and now I can see the films but cannot hear them.
I've tried a number of my movies which are on an external hard drive so I believe that they are still intact.
I can see them in VLC but I prefer to watch them on quick time
(Sometimes VLC seems to stick on the video whilst the sound continues)
Any ideas?

Perian.
Flip4Mac Player.

You didn't mention reinstalling them, so perhaps these will help.

How bizarre!
Installing flip for mac sorted the problem.
The problem files were AVIs not WMVs
I would have thought it would make no difference but you live and learn

AVIs can have WMV codecs inside them. AVI is more of a "container" than a "format."

Glad that worked!
