NO VIDEO WHEN TRYING TO PLAY AVI AND SRT FILES

Post by free2breggie »

I recently registered Quicktime Pro 7 and I'm trying to play .avi files along with the .srt to see the subtitles (they have the same names and are in the same folder). My hope is to be able to save the combined file using Quicktime Pro 7 and then burn it onto a DVD. Per the Perian website, I've deleted all of the old codecs described, but all I get is a black screen in Quicktime with sound, but no video or subtitles. When I uncheck the subtitles option on Perian I'm able to see the video and hear the sound, but, of course, I see no subtitles. I'm running MAC OSX 10.4.11. I've read about Front Row within a couple of forum posts here, but that requires 10.5 or higher. I have VLC but that doesn't afford me the opportunity to do what I'd like to do. Is there something else I need to do with Perian or am I just S.O.L.?

This is probably the same cause as the Front Row problem in 1.2.2.

Try 1.2.1 as a workaround:

or investigate Handbrake. Or try a 10.5/10.6 machine.
