I’ve downloaded Windows Meida 10 and have made sure that the .avi files were checked when it asked what kind of files I wanted to view. However, it keeps playing the audio only. What else can I do to play an .avi file? Thanks. reply

You’re probably missing the video codec for it. To find out which video codec you need, run one of the tools listed on this page and find out what the fourcc is.

Anonymous, thank you so very much. That worked beautifully and now I can play all of the files. (And it was a fast fix, too.) Much appreciated. reply

No, you can’t play .avi files with QuickTime. You can use Media Player Classic or VLC/VideoLan to play these files. They’re your best options. reply

whenever I try to play mine on DivX, it just says that an error was created and it shuts down. I don’t know, but the file may be corrupted or something.. reply
