I suppose that you need to download the latest AVI video codec. If you want to make all things easier, you can just use the media players that with all video codec packed.

If you decide to try the Shark007 codecs and still have trouble with AVI files, choosing to disable the DMO codecs on the SWAP TAB of the installed Settings Application will most likely solve the problem.

This isn't a solution to your problem, but you should really consider using VLC Media Player.
