    Windows media player has been playing avi files for a long time. You might need codecs that you don't have such as Divx. Whenever someone cannot play video files, usually the case is that they need Divx so I suggest you download the Divx codec. If that doesn't help there are programs that can determine what codec is necessary.

    Apple Quicktime.

    Windows Media Player

    .AVI is the standard for video files. Just click on it and if on windows, the media player will play it.
