Question about Apple QuickTime VR Authoring Studio 1.0

Can't play certain .avi files on quicktime

I use an archos av700 to save video files from a mini cam (helmet cam). i use a mac powerbook pro w/finalcut pro to do my editing. finalcut pro uses quicktime to play video files. the video files that the av700 creates will not play in quicktime. the file will open, but once the play button is hit quicktime crashes. i am able to play these files in mplayer, realplayer, and divx. i'm not able to convert the archos .avi file in the divx converter. the divx convert only converts 49% of the file and then freezes. i alwo use flip4mac studio pro with quicktime and still haven't found anything that will work to edit these files. i have some really good footage here that i would like to get out. Please Help!!

My computer is mac OS and I want to cut some AVI video


How to Convert AVI to MOV on Mac OS X Lion
You might have many AVI files, either from digital camcorders, like Cannon, shared from a friend who has a PC or downloaded from the Internet, stored on your hard drive. And Apple has reported that "Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format" is playable on Mac and iOS devices. But if your AVI files are happened to be other AVI files instead of those usable ones, e.g. they are encoded with a codec that QuickTime can't recognize, like DivX, XviD, in these cases, if you want to add these AVI videos to iTunes for organizing, edit AVI in iMovie, or playback on your iPad, iPod or iPhone, etc., you need to convert AVI to MOV or other iOS and Mac OS compatible formats.
If you have QuickTime Pro installed, you can convert AVI to MOV Mac directly. Just choose MOV as the output format by selecting "Save as". If you don't have QuickTime Pro installed or QT pro can't convert the AVI successfully, you can use this professional yet easy to use Video Converter for Mac to do the AVI to MOV Mac converting task. This Mac app enables you to convert any video or audio in all popular formats with ease.

How do I import avi video from my powershot sd600 to a mac powerbook? photos go right to iphoto, but I cannot find a way to get the avi movies on the camera onto the mac...using memory in a big way. ...


iphoto is just for still photos. Use a card reader to download your videos to a folder you create on your desktop. Double click on the video and Quicktime will play it. You can use imovie to edit it.

MININ DV TO ARCHOS


Hi,

Initially, it would work better if you can provide the specific model numbers of the Sony Mini DV Cam and the Archos. Assuming all things even, most DV cameras have an analog A/V video OUT, in turn some Archos with recording capability have an analog A/V video IN. If this were the case, then it would be a matter of getting the right connectors/plugs + cable and/or adapter/interface.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
