Hi all,
since I installed Mountain Lion I can't play .avi files with quicktime. It says that no codec is installed to play avi.
I always use perian as codec pack and with SL and Lion no problem to play avi with quick time.

Any suggestion?

thanks

I didn't use any codec pack, so I don't know what's going on .
Btw, MplayerX is much more powerful than QT in playing multimedia files.

update:
I accidentally discovered that quicktime plays .avi files only if they are on OS X partition. Avi stored in other partitions (eg. ntfs windows partition) can't be played by quicktime...

SL e Lion didn't have that problem....

thanks for the info
but I seldom use quicktime :)
I think mplayerx is kind enough to automatically play next episode for me :)
