Is there an AVI file plugin for Quicklook ?

The AVI codec reported by Quicktime is Motion JPEG OpenDML. 

I can play these AVI files in Quicktime but would stiil like to view them with Quicklook before deciding to open them with Quicktime.

    I've tried running the qlmanage program from terminal with the -p (compute preview) option on one of the AVI files.  Here is what is sent to the console output:


    30/01/13 10:11:19.843 PM qlmanage[6999]: Failed to communicate with qtkitserver: Connection invalid

    30/01/13 10:11:19.844 PM qlmanage[6999]: Failed to initializeServer(), returned 5

    30/01/13 10:11:20.794 PM WindowServer[100]: CGXDisableUpdate: UI updates were forcibly disabled by application "qlmanage" for over 1.00 seconds. Server has re-enabled them.


    qtkitserver does not exist in the process list. 

    Maybe the initializeServr() function tries to activate it but fails - error code 5.


    Does anyone know what these messages mean ?
