Hi Kristin Runaldou,

Which player do you use for playing the video?

The most probable reason for your green screen is that the codec required for playing the particular video in this case the avi file is missing.

Try installing the missing codec or you can try installing a player like VLC.

Dear Kristin,

Certain codecs are certainly missing on your QT to remove that green screen.

There are two ways of doing it.

1. You can download the codecs from the search engines like DivX Doctor II, 3ivx codec or DivX 5 package etc. and

2. Install them on your Mac.

However, these codecs converts the .avi files in to .MOV files and then starts. These .MOV files are also not free from errors.

Instead of that I will advise you

1. To shift to another media player and specifically VLC (See the picture below) which avoid such green screen and other routine errors.

2. Please click on this free download link to download VLC player for your Mac – http://vlc-media-player.en.softonic.com/mac.
