    Issue playing avi video files in Mac?

    This problem happens every time whenever I try to play the avi video files in Mac. I have already installed the VLC player for Mac and the problem is with that only where it gets freeze when I try to do right-click on the avi file or after opening it up in the VLC player. What might be the issue? Why my Mac is being weird in this? Any help?

    Hello Guest..

    For playing AVI format videos format, you need a AVI player which is compatible with your Mac and with avi videos also.
    The player VLC you are using is also not supported to play AVI files so this problem occurs,

    I suggest you to download
    AVI player for Mac Mplayer
    http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-macosx.html

    which is fully supported with Mac and also play the AVI Video format.

    Hope this works,
    Thank you..

    Well dear as your vlc player is not playin the avi videos then it will be because the player you are using is outdated as it does support the avi format videos.
    So you have to update your vlc player.you should update it from google store.
    If your problem is still not solved then you have to download an avi player for your mac and install it then you can play avi format videos easily.
    I think your problem will be solved now.thank you

    Hi Friend.

    When your facing an issue while playing AVI video files in Mac :

    This might be the problem with the Player you have choosen.

    Please use the supporting players

    and compatible one's .

    Make sure that the player your using is not crashed or incomplete .

    and it should support all the formats like

    MPEG4

    AVI

    MKV

    FLV

    the best player which supports all the formats are KMP player.


    or you can download the supporting and compatible player of your choice

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say............

    1.Firstly check that your VLC player s working finely or not.

    2.You can check it by opening the other avi files with the VLC player.

    3.If you have any problem with the VLC player then uninstall that software and download it by going to the website.
    'http://www.filehippo.com'.

    4.After downloading install the software and it will work.

    But before doing all these your check the format of the avi. file which you are unable to play.

    Because some avi. file are there which will play in some players only. So you check that install the required player to play that video.

    I hope by doing as i said you can solve your problem.

    All the best................

    This issue regarding the avi file is avi file is not supported to your device or for your player.
    So,for avoiding this convert the avi to supported file.After converting you need to do the below things.First download and install the file converter application.
    After converting open the application and tap the add option.
    Now select the media file to convert.After adding choose the other file to which you want to convert.Now after done all the process finally press the convert option.
    After convert a new window will open with options like open folder or open.Select the file to open the converted file.Now check the file is playing or not

    Hi friend,

    May users facing the problem with avi video files.This problems occurs due to the avi file is won't supported by mac.You can resolve this by two ways such as through using the AVI file supported video player or by converting the AVI to supported file.

    ---> First of all tap the mac home screen by turn on.

    ---> Now download and install the video format converter application.

    ---> Now load the AVI video to this converter.

    ---> After loading select the different format other than AVI and press the convert.

    ---> Now you AVI file is converted to other file.So,now you issue is resolved.


    If again facing the problem with AVI file then use the below players for watching the AVI videos.

    ---> VLC Media player.
    ---> KMP Player.
    ---> AVI Player.


    Thank you....................
