  2. Because some are .avi files?

    Install Flip4Mac.

    There must be other reasons too, because I have Flip4Mac installed and
    still have this problem.
    I expect there is something else installed that is causing the problem.

    I find that playback of .avi files in a browser window is broken since I
    updated to 10.4.10 in both Safari 3 beta and Camino. I reinstalled
    Flip4Mac, which needed to be updated anyway, but this did not solve the
    problem. I had not seen any other mention about this, though, so I
    assumed it was something FUBAR'd in my system.

    I can play an .avi in my Safari 3 window. It's a DivX.

  6. How about some specifics- like a link?

    Most of the stuff I run across plays since Flip4, in Firefox or Safari,
    but haven't seen much since I went to beta 3.

    It's a local file, on my hd. It's an hour-long tv show. Should I email
    it to you?

    You should be able to find an .avi on the web somewhere. Google google

  8. Don't be arch. I'm not interested in "some" .avi file somewhere on the
    web. I was interested in helping solve someone's problem. Specifics
    usually help.

    It's an Xvid @ 23.97 with (MP3 @16 bits/48k 128) audio in an .avi
    container. You should have no trouble finding such. Download an episode
    of The Simpsons.
