I tried playing an AVI file in Quicktime Player (or some other QT-based player) but the video doesn't show up. What's wrong?
  • The AVI file uses DivX or XviD for its video track and you do not have a DivX codec installed. To resolve this, install Perian Quicktime Components.
  • Your AVI file is one of the rare videos that Quicktime/Perian will not play for some reason. The solution to this problem is to use one the standalone video players listed at Mac Video Playback.
