Viewing movies in .avi format?
 
I am trying to view a .avi movie and it says that I need to download some 3rd party quicktime components which components do i need exactly? Also if i were to use Flip4Mac to view it would I be able to?

use VLC, it will play ANYTHING, even .VOB files.

You'll need some codecs. Try 3ivx and Xvid.

Drop the components into your application support > Quicktime folder.
