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!!

Re: can't play certain .avi files on quicktime

We do have issues playing .avi files which have been compressed using CODECs that are unavailable for QuickTime in MAC OSX. Here is what you can do... Revert back if this doesn't work.

Sony Vegas Movie studio 8.0 - I put in pictures, video and music, but only the music plays. No video or photos appear when I play the video

Because Sony Vegas support WMV, MPG (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4), MP4, MOV, ASF, SWF, FLV, etc. It doesn't support .avi format. So I want to know your video files format.

If ur video file format is .avi format or other video format that Sony Vegas doesn't support. We need convert AVI files into WMV, MPG, MP4, MOV supported by Sony Vegas. AVI to Sony Vegas is a good solution to import AVI to Sony Vegas for editing.

Video Converter Platinum is the most advanced AVI to Sony Vegas Converter software which can convert HD videos (inc.HD TS, HD MPG, HD MPEG, HD MP4, HD AVI), TOD, MOD, MTS, AVI (DivX, Xvid, etc.), QuickTime Video, 3GP, VOB, etc to Sony Vegas.

Good luck~~

You need to have a converter or software to run .avi file.

I have used cardrecovery 3.60 to recover photos and vidoes from my sd memory card of nokia 6120c, it had all videos in mp4 format. The result was fine about photos but about vidoes were all in mov format...

Ive talked it over with my associate, and we can only come up with..

mp4 is not a video format, it may play sound but no video, if you cant change the save type directly to your card, the you should try a diffrent card, i cant think of a way to fix this anyother way, i suggest you just buy a new one, they dont cost to much nowadays

if the videos were in mov format, then try update qt for the mov file, or install the codec needed for that .mov file, apple sucks so i really hope you find a way to avoid useing it lol, hope this was helpfull/solved, rate plz?

Can't play certain types of mpg files on my new mac

You may want to check out VLC Media Player. It is cross platform, open source and plays a greater variety of formats than quicktime (including MPEG 1 and 2); plus it is free. I highly recommend for troublesome media files.
Here's the link to the VLC webpage:
For help with the Sony DCR-SR62 I found two links on the apple support site that detail how to get the camera to work with your mac. It appears that your camera is not fully compatible with the mac however you should be able to get the video to work if you import through imovie and follow some of the workarounds detailed in the links below.

Hope this helps

Slow playback

What kind of video is being played? If its HD on an older computer it could have choppiness problems. you can try going to Applications>Utilities>Disk utility. In there, Click your startup drive, and click repair disk permissions. If that does not work, you should reinstall your operating system. I can guide you through that if necessary.
