    What verison of OS X is installed on your iMac?

     

    Also you will not find QuickTime in System Preferences, however if it successfuly downloaded and can be installed open Spotlight, type in QuickTime and hit Enter. The install process should begin working, you can also locate the file in your Downloads folder and double click it.

    Hi again,

     

    when trying to open/play the video file, this is what message hit out

    The document “HDTV.XviD-FQM.avi” could not be opened. A required codec isn't available.

    Quicktime is integrated into Mountain Lion, open Spotlight and type Quicktime and it will launch. AVI files are a MS Windows format though, you may need to download and install VLC to play AVI files.

    Open QuickTime Player 7 (Applications / Utilities folder) and look under the QuickTime Player 7 menu for "Registration". Use copy/paste from the email to avoid errors.

    The file you downloaded has DiVX in its name. That is the codec that is "missing" on your machine.
