A few learning movies I needed to DL for work are AVI files.

How do I play these in mac. QT doesnt open the files. I've dowloaded and installed flip 4 mac and it wont work either.

VLC works great.

I use iSquint to convert them to M4P format, which is more of a standard format...

perian is great. I forgot about it, had it installed in my old machine.

Nice little program that is.

Another vote for VLC.

Perian plugin for Quicktime, if not that, then VLC. The very off chance that those 2 can't play a file, then i try Visualhub and convert to a format that will read.
