    Directshow Audio component?
    I'm trying to watch a video (.avi) a friend gave me, but when I try to run it in quicktime, there is no audio. I try it in divX player, and it tells me:

    "This file contains a track in the Dolby AC3 Audio (code "8192") format. You may need to install a DirectShow decoder for this audio format in order to hear the soundtrack of this file."

    I've tried google, and all I've found is windows converters and advertisements.

    Any suggestions?

    Specs:
    Late 2013 rMBP, i7, 750m gpu, OSX versions 10.9.3, 10.10
    I assume you have perian installed, have you tried flip4mac? Or VNC to see if it will play correctly?
    My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)

    I have the same problem, but I cannot find a proper directshow decorder for Mac. ACFilter works for window only. Anyone can help us.
