All AVI files need a correc CODEC (Compressor/Decompressor) to be played. Windows 95 has several built-in codecs, like Cikepak, Intel Indeo, Microsoft RLE, and others. Some multimedia programs installs a new codec for its AVI files during program installation. You can easilly check the codecs installed on your system. Select Multimedia from Control Panel, and click on the Advanced tab. Double ckick the "video decompression codecs", and you will find the list of codecs installed. I think the codec missing in your system is IV50 (Intel Indeo Video), and not LV50.
Now you must to discover from what program are the AVI files you are trying to play. Install the software, and the codec that comes with this software (must be Indeo 5.0).
