You need to clarify exactly what you're playing and where it's coming from please.
RAW .avi files (uncompressed, ridiculously big filesizes and often massive on the screen) don't use any codecs. If the file was compressed in various formats (MPEG4, DivX, WMP, etc) you'd need the appropriate codec. K-Lite codec pack doesn't contain EVERY codec out there.

What happens, when you try VLC?
Where are those avi files from?
