Olympus 1030SW video problems

Not that I take videos with my little 1030SW very often, but when I do I’d at least like to be able to play them on my mac. As it was my Finder would crash every time I’d try and preview an AVI, or Aperture would crash on trying to import when these avi’s were present.

It turned out the problem was with the AviImporter Quicktime plugin, which I fixed by replacing it with the Perian plugin (in /Library/QuickTime). Now they play no worries.
