    cannot play all my Windose videos on my Mac
    Hi all, i have seen the answer to my question somewhere in a Forum but where.

    I remember reading somewhere a chap wrote a bootifull article for helping switchers where he told of three "Free Apps" which will be all i need to play every Video format under the SUN.

    Does anybody else know what they are or did i dream it ?

    If you install Perian - The swiss-army knife of QuickTime® components and Flip4Mac you should have no problem playing them in Quicktime then.

    and this might be the thread you are thinking about ?? http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/swi...r-new-mac.html

    VLC would be one. A must have.

    Cheers

    I have some old AVIs that won't play in Quicktime or VLC or just about anything else modern, and after much searching around, I ended up downloading MPlayer. It opens almost everything by default, and the site has a large variety of extra codecs available on it as well.

    In the interest of full disclosure, I find MPlayer to be significantly less refined than QT, and I use it only to consume content that I can't open with something else.

    thanks lads, all very useful, i have now confirmed that nothing will play what is on the DVD, the folders are virtually empty of any useful content so i will now erase it and use it again for something else

    It's like Windoze, but slightly more responsive.
