    Friend of mine sent me an AVI file as an attachment to an email. When IrfanView tries to open it, I get an error:

    Video not available, cannot find 'Vids:MP42' decompressor

    Downloaded the newest plugins for IrfanView, but still no luck. Anyone got an idea what might be able to open this file?

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    I would suggest VLC Media Player!
