    if you upgrade to quictime pro you can play .avi's without a problem, but your talking 15, vlc is free though

    You don't even necessarily need Pro, you just need the Codecs. Search and download the DivX and XVide codecs from and that should play most AVI movies.

    It's another alternative to play .avi
    quicktime 7 can't play .avi yet coz there's no codec available yet.

    AVI is a wrapper for all types of movie files. It's not so much an AVI codec, but the video encoding codec that counts such as DivX, XviD, 3ivx, OggVorbis etc.

    The DivX codec for Quicktime for Tiger and QT7 is still currently in beta as the Fusion Beta 3 codec.

    VLC (VideoLAN Client) is very good though as well, that said, I kind of prefer to use Quicktime, as I have QT Pro 7 and it just has a slicker UI.
