    Most likely need new codecs.

    I'm serious when I say this, because I've tried it and it has worked, but just give it a shot.

    Change the file extension from .avi to .mpeg. It has made some non-playing files magically start doing what they are told. It sounds crazy, but it just might work for you as well.

    Download MPLayer OSX or VLC and it will be the only one you need.

    I only have WMP9 installed so I can watch sitese that embed the video.
