Play unplayable AVI/WMV files

But AFAIK the windows media 9 codec isn't available at all on the mac. Or am i mistaken?

Play unplayable AVI/WMV files
Authored by: diamondsw on Jan 09, '06 08:49:54AM

Correct - there is no way to play a WMV9 (fourcc WMV3) stream that is inside an AVI container on a Mac. I've got a few dozen of the damn things (anime fansubs) that are unplayable. So far I've been transcoding them on a PC, but the results are usually choppy and pixelated... :(

This hack is sadly the closest I've seen to being able to view it on the Mac, although the sound sync would drive me nuts.
