May I suggest:
Run 'Software Update' (top left, under the Apple icon) to make your system's running the latest from Apple.

Then, to check if you need go further, double-click on the icon for a .avi file.  If it opens and plays, or shows you a list of recommended applications to select from (one or more should work, avi's aren't uncommon), you're done.

If not, or if you wish more choices, double-click upon, or copy-paste into the 'address' window of you browser:

You may not have the codec installed, search for k-lite codec pack on google and find a mac version

a codec is basically a driver for video and audio files.

It could be that the way the avis file has been encoded as various different codecs can be used to encode the sound and video. What I woud do is download perian from http://perian.org/ and I also use a great application called mpeg streamclip from http://www.squared5.com/ which can be used to view and also convert avi to other formats.

Hope this helps. If it does remember and post a rating for the solution.

You will need a software (probably from Kodak) to play and convert the movies.

Have you tried VLC Player. It can be downloaded free and it can play many formats.
