Hi

i have video tutorials i want to view on my mac.

i have installed perian, flip4mac, and added some codes into my user/library/quicktime folder however I still cannot view my avi files, only hear them.

It's possible you may have installed conflicting codecs. Just Perian and Flip4Mac alone should be enough for most stuff. If you're okay with not using QuickTime, I'd recommend MPlayer. There is literally nothing it won't play (except realmedia maybe?). That updated GUI and static build was done by anime_layer from the AnimeSuki forums, and it does a great job.

I removed codecs I installed individually. I now have only Divx, Flip4mac and Perian. But still cannot see avi.

According to Perian i need the AVIImporter.component to run avi files.

Anyone know where to get it? cannot find it anywhere myself.

DivX conflicts with Perian, which has a much better XviD codec included. AviImporter has for a long time been included in the Perian bundle.
