    XviD on a Mac?
    I have some xVid files but there is no sound. Quicktime says I'm missing some files, but the closest I can find is an xVid codec which turns out to only run in Windows.

    there is a problem with some xvid files encoded with a specific program (can't remember the name of it). but if you download VLC player, it will play pretty much anything. and you should have no problem with xvid files on it.
