Gizmo posted this link in MC, and I tried out the shareware.<br><br>http://www.fi.muni.cz/~xpridal/mplayerosx/<br><br>It works great, but with a few catches. <br><br>1. The software doesn't stay open, so everytime you wish to view an AVI, you must wait a few bounces to activate.<br><br>2. It would be sweet if you could drag and drop an AVI to activate it. Instead, you must navigate it.<br><br>3. Once activated, your terminal opens and spews a bunch of stuff. This would be okay, but once you've watched the AVI, the spew window is still open and needs to be disguarded. <br><br>I didn't read closely enough to see if by donating a little something you could streamline this process so that the program stays open, doesn't open the Terminal and spew window, etc. I doubt it, or they'd probably give you little reminders.<br><br>Still, AVI's on OS X.. no prob Bob. Makes me wonder if QT6 will be able to do this,<br><br>NTO1<br><br>Do you rhumba? Excellent! Now pick a rhumba and sit down.. GM

Well, I understand from a friend of mine that QT6 has problems with avi files encoded with MS MPEG2 or 4 (I can't remeber which) - fine picture, but horribly stuttering sound ...<br><br>hopefully the release version will fix this =)<br><br>***matt<br><br>
