When i tried rendering in blender a message says :"could not initialise streams probably unsupported codec combination"

I tried rendering with different files. I'm using a macbook, what can I do?

    $\begingroup$ Is it possible to attach a simple .blend file using blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com link , so we could probably spot the problem? Do you have a camera in your scene? Also include the blender version you are using and also the engine you are trying to render from ... eg. Blender render or Cycles? $\endgroup$ – hawkenfox Jan 29 '16 at 8:25

Not all video output options work on OSX. I'm assuming you're using a video format? You'll have to experiment to see which ones work on your machine.
