    Can't view avi files
    I'm a complete nub with the mac. I have a MacBook Pro with now additional software. I have mixed feelings about it. Many goods but I can't see avi video files from my wifes samsung point and shoot, or mpeg files from a sony digital video cam. There are old vids from various cams that I can see but..... I downloaded VLC and can view some of the vids I coudn't otherwise see but still can't get them into Imovie. Also seems like VLC vanishes after about 2 days. Not understanding that.

    thanks for any direction you may have.

    Arrr, be sure and add Flip4Mac WMV Player and Perian (both free fer the takin') to yer arsenal.

    As for the good ship VLC, it shouldn't be slippin' its moorings -- are ye sure you're sailing her from a proper install in the Applications galley rather than th' keelhauled Disk Image?

    Also, ye may need to gin up the ransom for a goblet of The Jobs & Apple's fine MPEG-2 Playback Compirate ale ($30) in order to scope and shanghai MPEG-2 stowaways into good ship's mates. A free wench called MPEG Streamclip be mighty accomodatin' after you buy her a goblet of that previously-mentioned ale.
