    Open media player, select tools/ options/ file types and check the boxes next to the file types you want media player to play.

    To open avi files on "Windows Media Player", you have to Open "Windows media player" then click "tools" on taskbar then "options" then click "file type" tab. Put a checkmark on Video since avi files are video files.
    Note: If a selected check box is dimmed, Windows Media Player has only partial ownership of the file type. Multiple file extensions are assigned to the file type, but the Player only plays some of those extensions by default. To give the Player full ownership of a file type, double-click the dimmed check box.
