    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.

    most avi wont play in quicktime

    Download VLC player. go to versiontracker.com and search for VLC and that should play it

    Ok... I can only find VLC for OS X, can you get it for classic?

    I looked also, it looks like it is only available for Mac OS X.
