AC3 Codec 0.3
Open source and free component designed to make it possible to play AC3 audio streams from AVI files with the help of the Quicktime player
The AC3 Codec works seamlessly and features no user interface. In addition, from the moment you copy this lightweight (17 KB) component to your Quicktime plugin folder, no configuration is required.
AC3 is Dolby Digital's technology for the audio component in AVI, XviD and DivX files. This plug-in was developed for users of older versions of Quicktime, which did not come with AC3 support. However, newer versions of Apples' popular multimedia framework fully support Dolby Digital's technologies, thus this plug-in might not be useful nowadays.
Moreover, you will need to install version 5.1 of DivX, which is quite old as well. All things considered, the AC3 Codec might not help you in any way if you use newer versions of Quicktime, but it does solve the audio issues in AVI files for older versions of the multimedia framework.
