Probably not the best to promote possible legal activity on this forum.

But perchance this is totally legit :o/?

You require the correct codec to decode the AVI.

It has been compressed to a size of acceptable quality but also, acceptable file size.
Usually this is done using DiVX or Xvid

You can search for these codecs on a search engine, like google or yahoo.
