Halo Movie Converted
2:15 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

An informed reader has pointed out that has posted links to a converted version of the new movies of the X-box title Halo which is playable on a Mac if you are willing to go through some rather labor-intensive steps. The essential ingredients are tough to come by and scattered all over the web, but we know some of you are "fan" enough to handle it.

First you need the movie, linked below; then you need the Mac DivX player (also below). The third and final ingredient is Microsoft Windows Media Player 6.3, which is very tough to come by -- if you have installed 7.0, it deletes 6.3 from your hard drive, and Microsoft no longer hosts the 6.3 download. If anyone finds a reliable source for this player, please post the URL in the forums or in the comments for this article.

Once you have the movie and the players installed, open the DivX player. Do NOT open the movie; instead, go to the Movie menu and choose DivX Doctor... and then select the movie. Click past the error movie and let the applications generate the .mov file. Then open this file from the File menu, and you should be fine -- just do not touch the controls while the movie is playing, or you will lose the audio.
