Is it possible to run DivX Avis in Quicktime 5 for Windows? I've searched for plugins or codecs but I'm not sure what I'm looking for. Please help.

erm... coz I like to use QuickTime - it looks nice and I'm trying to boycott Microsoft (I don't know why) and I just thought of trying out all diffrent apps. Right now I''m using Phoenix instead of IE and I'm loving it... Trillian Pro instead of MSN. QCD instead of WMP or Winamp... I thought QuickTime would fit in, coz I'm watching my DivXs on WMP right now. The DiviX Playa 2.0 isn't very appealing....

Plus I like the Macy look of QuickTime...

So please help...


How do I convert?

Why not use DivX Player with the Mac DivX skin or the Aqua Player Skin?

Then burpsters post is correct, you cannot play an .avi .divx in quicktime as it will not use directshow codecs that are required for such files to be decoded. A quicktime plugin is not current available. dood.

You could do avi to mov, though the quality would not be the same.

It's really hard to beat video encoded with Divx 5.0.2


Just wondering, but what don't you like about The Player (Divx) ?

It gives great visual quality vs WMP, though you can't always fast forward.

Not that I don't like the Playa, just never used it. I am part of the Inmatrix team and am therefore heavily biased towards Zoom Player.

Yo EP, that's an awesome app (Zoom Player), but I must say there are an overly abundance of options/features. One of which is the skin option. I would like to change the skin to something else which is already downloaded and unzipped to it's skin directory. Drag and dropping simply won't adhere.

That would be a good improvement upon the newer versions. QCD allows that, much like Winamp (or double clicking it will do).


Once again, great player (way too many features for my liking, notwithstanding).
