There are hundreds of ways to compress AVI movies. I suspect you just don't have the correct codec.

Desktop: Athlon 64 3700, 1024M RAM, GF 6200 TC 256M, 2x 80G, 2x DVD-RW
Laptop: Sempron 2800, 512M RAM, Unichrome, 60G, DVD-RW
Macintosh:G4 1.33GHz, 512M RAM, Radeon 9200 32M, 40G, DVD/CDRW
They get me from 0 to 1...

Do you have Windows Media Player, or Nulsoft Winamp?

These will include some codecs to run AVI files, which most files will use.

Media Player:




You might find Winamp to be a more advanced program, though Media Player is perfect for all movie files and sound files.
Abit IP35 Pro / Q6600 G0 / Zalman 9700 / 8800GTS 640mb / 4x 2GB Corsair XMS / X-FI Xtreme M / 1x 1TB / Antec 900 / Logitech Z-5500 / Samsung 20inch
