Please follow the 3 Methods:
 
Method 1:
Search the internet for Divx codecs. You will need to download and install this one. After the installation, you should be able to play .avi files in Windows Media Player as the codes are already available.
 
Method 2:
You can download and install K-lite CODEC Pack. This code is a collection of codes and other related tools. In order to encode/decode a file like audio and video, you will need codecs. The K-Lite CODEC Pack was created as a user-friendly solution in order for you to play all the movies you have. When you have K-Lite CODEC Pack on your computer, you can play up to 99% of all your movies files that you have downloaded from the internet.
 
Method 3:
You can download and install VideoLan Client or VLC. It is used as a streamer, media player, and encoder for Windows, UNIX, MAC, PocketPC, and BeOS QNX. It can play almost all audio and video codes that you can think of. It has support for DVD, VCD, and SVCD and it can also read streams from your network with the optional support of trans-coding audio and video formats.
