Hmm, my Quicktime (version 6) doesn't play .avi. Neither does Windows Media Player 7, and I got DivX 5.1.1. I'm running OS 9.2, and there are no updates I can get for any of these that allow me to play avi. Oh and I got Real Player (I don't know why it blows) and I STILL can't play avi. Anyone know why please help.

Cheers.
