I need a good free program that can let me view AVI videos. I used to be able to watch the videos from my camera, they are AVI, but now I can no longer watch them, any ideas?

Good, good.
Is it any particular movie, or any movie (in WMM)?

I got in to video conversion of VHS to DVD and had codec issue. I found the following to help me identify what codec the avi was created with and what I have on my computer. This resolved many frustrating issues.
