Default .avi videos

Okay so I'm not a very techy guy at all and I don't even know if this is the right forum for this, but i'll ask anyway

When I try to play a .avi video file, the sound is fine, but the video plays in slow motion, and every few seconds it skips ahead a bit to catch up, plays slow again, skips ahead to catch up etc. etc. I've tried both RealPlayer and Windows Media Player and I have about a million different codecs I've downloaded and it only happens with .avi.

Is there some program that would solve it or something? thanksthanksthanks

alright, first of all, delete realplayer, as it is adware.

now that we have that done, i can answer you question.

download and install vlc media player. it plays everything without even a single codec.

I know, on my other computer I can play the exact same file fine, on this computer this happens. Maybe the new video player will solve my woes, if not

it most likely will, as windows media fails to play a great number of files.

That actually isn't true. If you have the right codecs, WMP can play TONS of files. I play AVI, VOB, AC3, DivX, XviD and a whole bunch of other files. The only ones I can't play are MOV and RealPlayer related files (which is why I have Real Alternative and Nero Showtime).

It PLAYS the video, it's just that it plays it in slow motion. Then every few seconds it decides to skip ahead 5-10 seconds to catch up with itself, and the entire process repeats.

Oh, and I downloaded that video player John linked me. Same problem except instead of playing in slow motion the video dosn't even move :/

does it happen with all .avi files or just the one? If it's just one then the file might be corrupt.
U said that u had already downloaded lots of codecs but u could try downloading k-lite codec pack. With the k-lite codec pack and VLC I haven't found a file I couldn't play.
