    I have a Sony camera. When I plug it into my Macbook Pro (Mid 2010) 13in and copy the videos into a folder they come as a .avi file and Don't play? Is there any program i can use to convert them to a different type of file or is there anything that is already installed in a Mac that I can use to play them?

    Thanks,
    Manveer

    VLC - it's a media player. You many want to look into installing Perian as well which should allow you to play AVI files in QuickTime.

    Ditto with the word "Perian" or indeed any text in a thread like this that is red rather than the normal black.
