Hey pit, I recently "acquired" some movies on my computer (it's for a project, if you must know), but for some reason I can't figure out how to get them to play. If I open them in Windows Media Player, it just plays the audio track with the visualizer thing going, no actual video. I tried playing them with Quicktime, but it said I needed some plug-in or something and just froze up. Please help me!

Sounds like your trying to play .avi files The quickest way to do this would be just to download the Video lan player totally for free http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
It will play just about anything including DvDs which is pretty handy

Yeah, they're all .avi files. I'm downloading that player you mentioned now, thanks.

If VLC doesn't work for you then I will start to believe in global warming.
I am....making progress...

get VLC, but you'll also want to get the K-lite codec pack for quicktime. That has pretty much the same effect, and allows you to play pretty much anything.
