Try right clicking the AVI file, an options list will appear, look for "open with" click on that and you should get the option to choose a program to open the file with. Choose VLC Player, should play the file!

Yep +1 for the above advise.

It should play in WD TV HD Media Player - manual see page 78 Appendix, Supported formats.

Maybe the .avi is a bad download and is corrupted. Try re-downloading it.
