AVI player for Vista Home Premium?

I've got some old home movies that play via DivX on my laptop running XP, but the same files wont play on Vista with DivX installed as the codec (I think that's what it's called, not sure.) Anyone know a player that will play .avi files on Vista Home Premium? TIA.

Edit: Also since about two days ago all streaming videos will only play for about five seconds and then stop. The stream will complete downloading and the video still will not continue to play. I can move the slider along to a different part of the video and I can see the video, but it's a still... it wont play by itself.. This has me a bit confused. Any help with this would also be much appreciated.

Another vote for VLC. I use it for both my Mac and PC as the default player and it players everything. Plus on my Mac I didn't have to install any of the Codec's that Quicktime wanted as VLC has ones that worked fine right out of the box.

Ok so installed VLC Media Player, and when I go to play my .avi movies I get this error;

"No suitable decoder module: VLC does not support the audio or video format "IV50". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this."

WTF? HALP!!

It looks like an Intel codec. I did a bit of research (Google) and found the download site here.

This will get you to what you want and give you the info about what the codec is.

Johnny, thanks for the help but that codec hasn't helped at all. I'm wondering if this has to do with 64bit vista... as my sound card and webcam cannot be installed on here due to conflictions. (worked fine on xp )
