    I hope by films, you mean machinima or a game movie, because we don't tolerate pirated movies and software here at Techspot. If you have downloaded it illegally, go somewhere else for an answer.

    Otherwise, Welcome to Techspot!

    Download Gspot and open the file with that, it will tell you what codec is required. Its probably divx or xvid though since its got that avi extention.
