    I have downloaded a movie (Attack of the clones), and it won't play in any of my players. It reads as a AVI file on my computer, but it refuses to play in Divx Player, Realone Player, Quicktime, and Windows Media Player. I am out of choices. Please HELP!!!!!!!

    If the Google search doesn't do the trick check out IrfanView. AVI is one of the formats it claims to handle though you may need to download a plugin as well; www.irfanview.com

    I have IrfanView but I've never tried to use it for movies. If you do try it, post back and let me know if it works.

    you can either double click the avi file or open the player and drag/drop the file into the main window
