Player for AVI Video files

Does anyone know the best free player for AVI video files please?
Real and Windows Media don't work and I can't tell which of Google's suggestions is free of spyware etc.

Player for AVI Video files

Both real and Media player should play avi files fine. What problems are you getting when you try to play them?

If the avi files are divx format you probably need to download a divx codec/plugin to play them or if using a non-standard format some other codec/plugib. You can get a free player and plugin here.

Have you tried googling for 'free avi player'

Both players wanted a codec(?) and went to look for it but couldn't find it.
The download you indicated worked a treat and they play fine now on Windows Media, thank you.

Yes, I did Google and it came up with Zoom player as often as anything, but without personal recommendations, you risk downloading rubbish/spies etc.
