Intel Indeo 3.2 is nactive on Windows 95, 95a, OSR2 and Windows 98. On Windows 3.1, this codec is not present. Multimedia titles that include AVI files using determinated CODECs include an installation for the specific codec. See the contents of the CD-ROM where these AVI files area located. You will certainly find a Video for Windows installation. With this installation, the IV32 codec will be installed, and you will can see the videos.
