You should be able to just play them in Windows Media Player.
Maybe the avi you have is encoded in divx? You could try downloading the divx codec at www.divx.com
And then load it in Windows Media Player and play it again..

You might also want to get a copy of Divfix - it's free and very useful for recreating the index for partially-downloaded AVI files so that they can be viewed using Windows Media Player.
