OK, I installed 'XviD_Codec 1.0 alpha.component' correctly into HD\Library\QuickTime on my OSX.4.11, but the 'XviD 1.0 Pref App' says that it cannot be opened. Why?

We need a developer to upgrade this to work better. Needed is quantizer controls and the ability to play friendly with both AAC and MP3 audio encoding in QT. Video through QT without quantizer is usually horrifically large to look even halfway decent.

There really doesn't seem to be a use for this with Perian around.

qt_thing from qt_tools gives me that in the terminal: + 785 @0x0001002b imdc:xvid:Peri "Xvid (Perian)" I think that means Perian handles xvid for decoding.

Excellent! This does just what it is supposed to. Five stars. And to the person who said there was no sound, this is a video codec.

This hasn't helped at all. I downloaded it and moved the thing into my Library Quicktime folder as instructed and nothing has changed. I still can't play my .avi video. I even used DiVX Doctor II to try to get it to work and all that it did to help was it let me hear the audio. But I still have no picture at all. I tried using DivX Converter and that also did nothing.

It's probably not Xvid then. Get Info on the movie and check the signature for the video. There's usually a 4 character code that should give you an idea of what video codec is actually used. .AVI does not imply any particular codec for either the video or the audio. It's a container, like QuickTime. And into that container, you can put video encoded into any format, audio encoded into any format, and other things as well. .AVI doesn't tell you anything about what is actually needed to play it (even if Windows people think it does). To get your file playing, you should also try VLC Media Player. It handles a lot of file types and a lot of codecs. It is also less picky about looking through the container and finding video/audio it can play. If QuickTime doesn't find video/audio where it expects it inside the file, it tends to just give up; VLC is much more likely to keep looking and find something.

But the thing is I'm trying to get Toast Titanium to recogize it, since I want to burn it to DVD. Info on the file: Format: WMV3, 640 x 480 pixels size, Millions (of colors I assume), MPEG Layer 3, Stereo, 48,000 kHz FPS: 24.04 Playing FPS: Available while playing Data Size: 290.64 MB Data Rate: 1785.75 kbits/sec

"Format: WMV3" says it all: It's a WMV (windows media video). You might want to try the Flip4Mac WMV Player (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/17787)

According to the website of flip4mac (http://www.flip4mac.com/wmv.htm) you should be able to "import WMV files for editing and conversion to MOV" with WMV Player Pro.

Meh, I would really rather not do that. Besides, I found a way to convert the files on my PC, so I guess I'll just stick with that.
