I have a client that has a video clip that was capture from an endoscopic camera that has it's own capture system to Divx 4. After the recording is done it burns a CD-ROM. I haven't been able to open this file on our Mac except with Mplayer or VLC. I need to use just 2 or 3 minutes from this 20 minute clip.
Does anyone know of a way to convert Divx to Quicktime? I've tried Divx player, 3ivx and xvid to see if Quicktime could open these files.
Try ffmpegX. If that doesn't work, there used to be an app called divxTool, that allowed you to change the fourcc of the movie to make it compatible with QT. There was also DivX Validator, which could convert to DivX QT movies. And there is still DivX Doctor from 3ivx, which rewrites DivX AVIs to DivX MOVs, essentially the same thing. If all of that doesn't work, I would then try the ffmpeg codec. If you don't have any luck, or can't find some of these tools, email me.
