    if you get VLC u wont need anything else...


    If VLC doesnt play it its not a real video extension.

    Until someone hacks Front Row to use VLC, I prefer QT.

    Generally, all my dl'ed video content (TV shows mostly) are DIVX files, so I can watch them in Front Row.

    DIVX even has a beta codec out for QT on the intel Macs.

    what type of video is it?

    Here is my breakdown of videos & its respective player:
    .mov - QT
    .mpg - QT
    .avi - VLC
    .wmp - Windows Media Player (except WMP10 files)
    .asx - :dunno: can't get one to play yet
    .ram - Real Player (not worth it)
