I have QuickTime Player Version 10 installed on my laptop. I have an avi video clip that I would like to watch but I couldn't get it to work with QuickTime. When I try to play it via QuickTime I get this message "The document (name of clip) could not be opened. The movie is not in a format that QuickTime Player understands. You may need to install additional software to open this type of file". And then I have the option to click OK or Tell Me More. I tried installing Flip4Mac but that didn't work either.

What additional software do I need to install in order to watch clips with QuickTime?
