Quicktime will play avi files. It may have even come with your computer. I'm running Jaguar and I believe it came with Quicktime installed. I sometimes have trouble playing wmv files on my mac, though. Windows Media Player seems to only want to handle some of them, no matter what codecs I download.

E pluribus unum, baby.

Well Tom i got good news for you in that you can!

Download "MPlayer" from the mac site that'll play em plus you can also download mac divx codecs fron the divx site. These will get the avi.'s that mplayer wont play to work!

So there ya go.

This is tried and tested so i know it works for sure mate!

Good luck
