I hope that the movies you have downloaded are not illegal copies, but anywho try VLC Media Player. It doesn't need any codecs downloaded, it uses its own built in codecs. I have yet to come across an avi or mpeg/mpg file that VLC hasn't been able to play.

I don't like to post direct links, hence why I just gave you the basic one, but since you can't seem to find the link to download yourself I will post it here.
