    Therefore to clarify:
    • You may not discuss breaking DVD or BluRay encryption, copying, or "ripping" commercial, copy-protected DVDs.
    • This includes DVDs or BluRays you own. Even if you own the DVD or BluRay, it is still technically illegal under the DMCA to break the encryption. While some may argue otherwise, until the law is rewritten or the US Supreme Court strikes it down, we will adhere to the current intent of the law.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying unprotected movies or homemade DVDs.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying tools in the context that they are used for legal purposes as outlined in this post.

Hello,

I was hoping someone could help me with my problem...

I'm trying to open some short .avi videos created on a PC in PAL widescreen 720 x 576 but my iMac wont open them.

QuickTime states "The movie is not in a format that QuickTime Player understands."

Final Cut says "Codec not found. You may be using a compression type without the corresponding hardware card."

I have the latest version of QuickTime pro, Flip4Mac, Perian, VLC Player and DivX player.

I'm using an iMac i7 2.8 GHz Intel running OS 10.6.2

Does anyone know of any way I can play these files?

Thanking you.

Probably has something to do with them being PAL format.
