Xvid Codec for mac

Recommended Posts

If you don't want to bother with a codec then use VLC:

I believe their software is all legal and above board. The have internal codecs that makes life simpler.

I assume we are all running OS/X these days. Thus stuff just doesn't exist for OS 9 (for the most part) as I had enough trouble finding a free and legal MPEG2 video player.

Did you get xvid encoded avi's to work on qt7?

i saw codecs earlier, but they said they were not ready for tiger.. I have gotten used to vlc because it can stretch my video to 16:10 when i watch fullscreen, but i still want videos to work with qt7 because i think it is superior visually. xP

You need to first install the DivX Codec : http://labs.divx.com/archives/000057.html

then the XviD Component: http://people.ee.ethz.ch/~naegelic/index.php

If you read the notes on DivX.com, they don't have a Tiger (Quicktime 7) version ready yet. And since the XviD Component relies on DivX being installed, neither will work with Quicktime 7 yet.

edit: nevermind, I didn't see the new beta you linked to. I had just looked on the official DivX site yesterday and they didn't say anything about it. :angry:

i have problems in VLC and other players with audio encoded in AC3, its really annoying because i have to go on my PC to watch these ones, just can't get it working on os x with mplayer, vlc or quicktime with some codec i found.

ok, still having problems with AC3, nothings seems to work.

I realise that VLC is meant to work with AC3 but it just doesnt seem to work on my computer. I tried the dr program from 3ivx.com and that wouldnt work either. the files work fine on my windows machine. There must be some kind of solution to this?!

Also i find VLC to be pretty crappy with audio playback about 40-50% of the time. It just gives me audio errors and i have to use MPlayer 2 OS X
