On my PC, I could import Xvid/DivX encoded files just fine into Premiere Pro CS3. (even .vob files)
Now on my MBP, I haven't been able to import any kind of avi file that is encoded with Xvid. I get the same error message of "unsupported compression format". I'm not sure why, I had both codecs installed.
I followed the steps listed here to install Xvid on my Mac.
(I copied the xvid component into the Quicktime library. Videos play back fine outside Premiere but no luck importing them into it.)
Did I install it correctly? Or is there another installation directory that would enable xvid or divx and even .vob file videos in Premiere Pro CS3?
Or are there any other methods I could use to enable xvid encoded files in Premiere?
