Has anyone had any problems playing/editing the AVI files captured with the Archos AV500 on a Mac. I have an MacBook Pro with the latest version of OS X. Initially I could not get anything but a blank white image when attempting to playback the .avi files. I downloaded the DiVX player that apple recommends. I was able to see the initial frame opening frame of the clips but once I try to play the clip quicktime would immediately close and an error message comes up. I reloaded both quicktime and the DiVX player but it did not fix the problem. Any recommendations?

Try doing a search for something called Perian, which is a quicktime plugin that lets you see all sorts of weird stuff. It's free, open source and I use it to view all my TV on the computer.

I had already downloaded VLC however it would only play back on the VLC player, I wanted to be able to play on quicktime and edit on final cut pro (which uses quicktime files). I downloaded Perian and it works great, no problems. Thanks for the quick response.
