AVI File

My brother in law has downloaded a program which allows him to download video files, dvd rips etc...

The player that is included does not seem to work properly but the file is fine.

The file is an avi file and was thinking of downloading a dvd player for the laptop to play this???

That is the player that came with the download, i was just wondering as the files that are downloading are .avi, if i could download a dvd player and play them...

AVI is not DVD format! What is probably required are codecs:

All the codecs you need.
Windows media player, vlc, media player classic and real player all play avi files.
