What I guess I should ask, is what are the essential codecs to be able to run pretty much all divx's out there in quicktime (without using vlc)? as vlc is porked on my system (its all in russian and i dont know how to change it back)

I think i've got the latest divx codec (5.2.1?) and xvid a while back too

anyone care to shed some light on the subject? :)

divx 6 is out here http://www.divx.com/divx/mac/
FFusion is another one
and 3ivx I believe are what you need to play most stuff.

Delete all VLC preferences!

A little bit old. Time to upgrade :P

Personally delete VLC and get the latest and try again, it will be better than Quicktime. Quicktime has some serious issues with divx's from time to time!

Sound might be AC3 (5.1) which I don't think QT can handle.

Try DivXWMAConverter (http://www.carrafix.com/DivXWMAConverter/) too.

This is what I use (see attached picture which has had certain volume/usernames edited out but shows what I have) and pretty much everything except .wma files are playable in quicktime. That said, I still prefer VLC for just about everything.

hmmm, any codecs out there that can do wma audio in film clips?

(also is there a program out there that actually tells you what video/sound compression a file uses?

QuickTime Player: Cmd-I

The link I provided before will convert WMA embedded audio to something QuickTime can play. I know of no codecs that will do it natively.
