I have a mac mini that i purchased from the apple store in august. I cannot seem to get it to play .avi files. I just get a white screen.

what can I do to make this work?

.avi isn't really a single file type, it's basically a container, and the stuff inside can be any of a number of different codecs. Your options here are either to install all the necessary codecs (once you figure out exactly what you need), or to use something like VLC player, which basically plays everything you can throw at it.

I'd recommend using VLC.
