How to play .avi files? TIA!

    I have several .avi files named in series as <file>(001).avi,
    <file>(002.avi, etc.

    When I try to play them with a current version of Windows Media player,
    which supposedly suppors .avi files, I get an error message saying a
    decompressor can't be found and the file type is not supported.

    Any help with this problem would be appreciated!

    Check the readme / .nfo file supplied.

    LiveCDs which boot from CD without installing
    have the program called xine that has many different decompressors
    one of which may be enough to play the file you have.
    Try the knoppix, kanotix, mepis liveCD, etc
    from the huge list below.
    Movix in the list is a liveCD that turns your PC into a DVD player
    with more features than average DVD players.
