    does anyone know how to play this video on a mac?

    Top.Gear.S09E01.WS.PDTV.XviD-RiVER.avi

    i've tried VLC and installing XviD_Codec 0.5.1 to Quicktime but still can't get the video to play.

    any suggestions?

    I think your .avi file has a problem, vlc will play almost any file (xvid,divx etcc.).. But you can try perian, its a plugin for quicktime.. use google to search it :) HTh

    I've been promoting this: Use DivX Player. I never had problems playing any Xvid DivX files with it. VLC sometimes can't play my .avi files properly. Sometimes the audio misaligns with the video. Nagiging parang Chinese movie that's dubbed. Hehehe. You can download DivX Player here. There's a free version. :)
