How do you play .avi files?

I have win amp, but it doesn't seme to work with the avi files I just downloaded.

Is it my player, or is it the files?

When I play them I only get sound, not the video to go along with it. This has happened before and its always avi files

Sounds like they are either DIVX or XVID encoded files. You'll need to download the codecs to play them.

I use WMP (with ffdsshow installed) for most files but some times it will mess up some codecs, then I use VLC with plays all avi's that I have seen (not counting ones that are broken)
