• The Mac-Forums Community Guidelines (linked at the top of every forum) are very clear, we respect US law and court precedence when it comes to legality of activity.

    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.

I downloaded a DVDRip of Sleepless In Seattle but there is no sound when I try to watch it. It is a .avi file, and Quicktime told me I may need to download a codec to make it work but it didn't tell me which one. I tried reopening the file but the error message won't appear again.

Anyone know what to do?

Thanks!

VLC is a must app just to have, it will try (and usually succeed) in playing ->any<- video file.

but, just to warn you, pirating things is against the forum rule and you can get into trouble, just try to keep that part to yourself. ;)

Thanks for the heads up ;)
Sorry to the admins.

Probably Perian http://perian.org/ You'll need Tiger or later.

Yep! It worked! Although I still think I will download VLC!
