when willie, my mac man, makes me a mov for my pc (ibm style) he saves it as a pc type mov. however, willie can run any mov i output from my pc
>Is it possible to run AVIs on a Mac? Do I need a special program to do so?
as far as i know, it can't be done.
that is why we have avi's and mov's at our web site.

be aware that the web you see at aol is not the true internet. they download portions of the WWW to their server. they don't let you see the whole web (at least not the last time i checked). additionally, different browsers see pages differently. our site (like most) is designed for the netscape navigator. it is possible that you are only seeing half of the picture, if your viewing at aol with their browser.
