To play AVI files in Windows Media Player, you need to add a video playback plug-in (codec). You can detect the type of codec required by the AVI file by using Codec viewing tool. The codec should then be downloaded then installed into your Windows OS. You can use GSpot Codec viewing tool to do this.
