Question by : how can I view AVI files downloaded from Lime Wire on my comp. that has Windows Media Player and Quick Time?
What media player is associated with avi files? can i use windows media player or quick time player? as of now when i try to play the avi video files, windows media player initiates but gives this message "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file" ...... or i get a codec error and auto matically directed to a webpage wanting me to do surveys to "unlock" updates for windows media player codec, that is supposed to allow me to view these files....... looks like a scam to me.....does Quick time not support avi files and if so how do I make Lime Wire use Quick Time automatically for these files....thank you, mike

get yourself a copy of VLC, that'll play everything. and its great for DVDs too.
