The AVI files will have to be converted to something that iTunes will recognize and as iTunes is QuickTime based, you need to be looking for a way to play AVI files in QuickTime.
AVI is only a container and the video may be in some other format that QT can already play.
VLC and DIVx player are both stand alone applications that you will not be able to control with the remote control
My system is: Macbook with OS X Leopard on it.
There is a fil collection in .avi-format. Caused by different reasons there is no possibility to convert them in any other format.
I would like to can play my .avi-films on i-tunes.
This is not because of a special love to I-tunes. Much more is this because of the control keys and the remote control. I downloaded the divx-tool, but somehow I can only use DivX as an external player. So the two questions are:
1. how can I play .avi films on I-Tunes? or...
2. How can I make some other players (i.e. VLC-Player) to communicate with the control keys and remote control of my Macbook?
Thanx for any tipps
