crash and videos
Hee. I had my first firefox crash on the macbook just now. But I’m not worried, gmail crashes firefox sometimes, it’s the java stuff. And since I have crash recovery I get back to the state I was in before the crash. I mean, that’s one of the reasons for using firefox, right? Oh, and more secure, faster, easier to use and generally more superior too.
I was trying to play some of the .avi files I had on the dell on the mbp but all I saw on quicktime was a blank screen. I had the presence of mind to realise I needed divx codecs, but even after installing and even fixing the .avi files on divx doctor, all I got was sound.
Still not worried.
A little googling pointed me to a very useful guide to how to get the right plug-ins.
First, download the binary of xvid/avi import components, making sure it’s the intel version.
Then, download the binary of ac3 codec, again picking the intel version.
Open both sets of dmgs and copy the BIN files to library/quicktime and that’s it.
