Picasa web .avi videos wont play on friends PC.

I have recently upgraded my Fuji camera that now records videos in .mov format which my friends XP PC plays OK, but my previous Fuji's .avi files on Picasa web wont play on hers. Our families met on a cruise and I wanted to send video links to them. We have only just started exchanging photos etc on Picasa web, so don't know if the problem has always existed. I don't know what XP version she has at this stage, but if not on XP3 would that matter? I suggested d/loading Quicktime if she doesn't have it. Any suggestions/help would be appreciated. Thanks.

No takers?

Quicktime should work but you could suggest using VLC as a player for her.

I have used that myself, but from memory it seems to clash with WMP unless you by pass it with 'open with'. I will mention it.
