How to Play AVI in QuickTime
Can’t play AVI in QuickTime with a lack of a necessary codec? It's a common problem. AVI files differ in video & audio codecs. Only a part of video and audio codecs in AVI files can be recognized with QuickTime. In this case, you may want to install a QuickTime AVI plugin for a smooth playback on the player. Perian is a free QuickTime component that can let you play various popular video formats (including AVI) not natively supported by QuickTime. However, it’s pity that Perian for QuickTime has no longer been maintained and updated.
Here, I’ll introduce another feasible solution to let you play AVI with QuickTime smoothly. That’s to convert AVI to QuickTime natively-supported format with a professional AVI to QuickTime MOV converter - Wondershare Video Converter ( Video Converter for Mac ). With it, you're free to play any AVI file in QuickTime player.
