    Movie Not playing in Quick
    Hi, I'm having problems running quicktime movies- .avi and .mov and i'm not sure what I'm supposed to download to allow quicktime to read these. Any help is appreciated.

    I've noticed that Quicktime has only a select number of codecs. Try using mPlayer or VLC Media Player
    Either of those should be able to play your avi files.

    Do you know anything that could replace quicktime?
    btw MPlayer is crap.... the scroll sucks period it moves the whole window and also it's very crappy

    Just download Divx which installs a ton of codecs for QuickTime. I rarely have to open up VLC to play anything
