I have downloaded an avi file and it won't play in Quicktime. Is there anything I can add to quicktime or a tool I can convert it to quicktime? I want to transfer the movie on to an iPod. Thanks in advance.

Try Perian.

But in order to export the video to the iPod, you'll require a conversion tool. I'm not an expert on that and many will be able to show you free tools, but I use Quicktime Pro.
