    .avi file problem...perian?
    Hello again everbody,

    I just downloaded and installed Perian after researching why Quicktime won't play .avi's...but they still won't play...sorry if this is a stupid question, but should I just give it a reboot? (it's an old powerbook, takes a little while)
    Thanks!

    Although most avi's will play through quicktime with perian, some won't. For the ones that don't download and use VLC.
