Question about Computers & Internet
That depends on what kind of lock you are dealing with. If you are getting permission error messages, in the Finder, click on the file to select it, then go to the file menu and select Get Info (shortcuts: ctrl-click and select from the pop-up menu, click to select, then type <apple>-i). Make sure you have read permission for the file. In OS 10.5 and later, click the File Sharing and Permissions triangle to show that info, then click on the padlock below to unlock it (you'll need the administrator name and password). Now you can give the logged-in user permission to read the file.
Generally you need a third-party application to play a .avi file on the Mac. I've use VLC Player and the Flip4Mac plugin for Quicktime Player with decent results.
If you are trying to hack a DRM (Digitial Rights Media) lock on the file, I can't help you. There may be an anti-piracy key that goes with the file; Check the manual, wrapper or case that originally contained the file media.
