VLC is also a good movie player that handles most avi files

Be Warned:

If you play id Software games (Quake, Wolfenstein, Doom) - there is a chance that your mouse pointer icon will always be in the center of your screen (in-game).

Apparently, it's related to DiVX - although, by removing my codecs, the problem still occured.

My solution?

Delete Doom 3. It's terrible.

Just warning you - if you play those games...
