Impossible to say without knowing what codecs were used in the AVI. I'd suggest just playing the video in VLC Media Player, freeware which can handle a number of AVI formats.

This is a small program that helps determine what codecs are used in a .avi, I haven't used it in several years but recall it did work fairly well.

The VLC media player worked fine. Played the file perfectly. Thanks very much!

Thanks for the suggestion. I didn't try it, because the first suggestion (try VLC player) worked. Thank you.

That makes no sense at all. VLC player is crapola on a windows computer. You already have Windows Media Player that handles .avi, which QT rarely does. So you installed a media player or software just to clutter up your computer when you already have a media player that supports that file.

varjak paw, my first thought in reading your post was you don't know windows computers. To advise anyone with windows to download VLC is ourageous, lol. I assume your on a Mac to make that suggestion.
You may be a level 10, but please don't cross platform, if you don't have a clue. I wouldn't think of going to QT for Mac and rarely have. No offense meant, but annoying, regards Jacumba

Your "first thought" was totally wrong. Don't make assumptions about which you know nothing. And you are welcome to your opinion about VLC Media Player, but since by the OP's statement it worked just fine, your statement is inapplicable and your personal aspersions are highly offensive. You are adding no useful information to this thread, making only unnecessary and unfounded criticism, so please stop now.

So "clueless" that I suggested something that worked for the OP. I'll take that "clueless" any day.
Please stop being a jerk.
