    Weird avi problem...
    In Quicktime, it plays fine visually, but no sound. In VLC it plays fine sound, but visually has a green line across the middle diagnally with a bit of seperation.

    Only the last two movies I've acquired have done this. None before....

    Ideas?

    In VLC, while the movie is playing, press Cmd+I and click on "Advanced Information." Then open up the two arrow things and post what it says about the streams.
