I need advice how to watch .Avi movies on my ibookg4 which has quicktime player.

Asked by orangetangerine (1points) January 24th, 2010

I downloaded season 5 of weeds, and the files are an .avi file. My quicktime player shows that i need a third party application for quicktime to play. I downloaded perian, which i thought would solve the problem but it doesn’t help. When i go to the mac quicktime components page, i don’t know what to download. i don’t have a ton of memory, and my mac is version 10.4.11 – so divx codex wouldn’t download. I only want it to watch movies, not edit, or do anything fancy. ... and i’ve been so stoked to see this season, and am so close can anyone advise?!

Download the VLC media player—It should play it. Works on my G4

VLC is your best bet. I use it for everything. It has only failed me a few times.

VLC is great and you can also download the Perian codec pack for Quicktime which will play just about anything as well.
