need to find what codec it needs. try this prog (http://www.headbands.com/gspot/) it will tell you what codec you need.

codec...basicly what the movie is encoded with.

avi is a container which houses the movie. the movie can be encoded by various codecs. comman ones include divx, xvid and a few microsoft ones.

there is also a few filters which are cable of playing multiable codecs.

run the prgram and it should give you an idea on what video and audio codecs are required.
