Tips for Playing Divx Xvid AVIs on Mac OS X
We have found that the following four methods will enable viewing most AVI files that do not play in QuickTime. While none of these methods are foolproof and some AVI files still refuse to play, one of these methods will usually work.
a. Use VLC
Probably the easiest way to play AVI and DivX files on Mac OS X is to download and install the freewareVLC Media Player for OS X. VLC is also often referred to by its original name, VideoLAN Client.
B. Install the 3ivx D4 CODEC
Download and install the 3ivx MPEG-4 CODEC per the installation instructions in the associated ReadMe files. This CODEC adds support for a variety of DivX and other formats which often carry the .avi extension.
DivX® is the name of a popular new video compression technology developed by DivX, Inc. The format was developed to enable users to play and create high-quality videos in a fast and convenient way, while still maintaining the best quality possible. The DivX® codec is currently the most popular MPEG-4 based codec because of its quality, speed and efficiency as well as the wide range of DVD players that support the DivX® format.
If you compare DivX movies to DVDs they're able to offer the same image quality at one-tenth (1/10) the size, which makes them perfectly suited for movie downloads where the bandwidth available usually is limited. This means that you can easily fit a full movie on a single CD, while still maintaining the original image quality of the DVD. The video is usually combined with AC3 or MP3 audio to provide both high quality audio and video. All of these things have contributed to the popularity of the format among those that download movies and videos online.
When you install the DivX® codec it essentially works as an add-on to your system, which enables you to compress and decompress video in the DivX® format. Once you've installed the DivX® codec on your system you will be able to watch DivX videos using Windows Media Player or any other player that supports the DivX® format.
