Quick time don't play .avi files

Recommended Posts

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 already used mplayerx and vlc (they work fine). but I would like to understand why quicktime don't work...

 

thanks anyway for suggestion

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 :)
