avi files not playing

By tattiecarter ·
I have a number of downloaded avi files. Some play OK, most don't. What possible causes or solutions could there be. I have Windows Media Player which says that it downloaded a decompressor which did not work (MPEG 4?). I have also tried Real Playerwith similar results.

Go to www.divx.com and download the codec (decompressor) from there, and also try their avi player, called The Playa.

This didn't sort my particular problem, which was resolved by upgrading to WMP 7, however I have got another option for playing media files. Thanks

You need to download DIVX. You should be able to play all.
Here is the address http://www.divx.com/

Hope that helped
