vids:i263 decompressor error with some AVIs

When I try to view certain AVI files I get the error "cannot find vids:i263 decompressor" This is not an Intel Indeo driver, I have the latest version of the Indeo codecs installed and I can see Indeo AVI's fine. The format the video for this AVI is identified as "I 263 V2.55" Whatever that is. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could tell me where to download the proper codecs to view these types of avis. I have searched on just about every search engine with no luck.
Thanks

just in case:
if I correctly understend what U looking for, go to URL:

http://support.intel.com/support/createshare/camerapack/codinstl.htm 
From there download and install the file CODINSTL.EXE.

Once installed on your local system, the Intel I.263 codec will
be available for playing back the video file.

 Please, note:
I have info that this file at Intel's site is VIDEO ONLY.
If U want sound too, go to

http://members.aol.com/SlavTrainr/STsPage.html for a
different version I.263 codec, which includes IMC audio.

 Additional info:
 A codec is a method of COmpression and DECompression
for audio and video files.  If you don't have the right codec
installed on your system, certain video files won't play at all.
Others will play only the audio or the video portion.  This is a
common problem with some older and newer codecs, since
they wouldn't have been installed on your system along with
your present operating system or movie players.

Try downloading this Codec

ftp://download.intel.com/support/createshare/camerapack/codinstl.exe 

I was experiencing problems viewing certain AVI files. After talking with an Intel Tech, he pointed me to this file which works great....

Hey, Timmie, do U have problem reading your own thread?
Itusnr, "your" file is absolutely same as suggested from me,
check above -
".. http://support.intel.com/support/createshare/camerapack/codinstl.htm 
From there download and install the file CODINSTL.EXE. "

Yes, if U try to check this URL - ..codinstl.htm, there's the only links to download is for Codinstl.exe, PLUS some additional info about that file, that's the only reason why I posted link to page, but not to the file.
Do U really think - your answer is better then my COMMENT? Why?
Hmm.., may be next time U'll better try to post phone # to Intel techs..

Timmie, R U a real human, or some kind of "ghost-extension" to one of the "active" EE's "expert"? How many "ghosts" here on Experts-Exchange?
Why am I asking? Well, here's little more info for PAQ:
Question was posted July 22, within half hour I posted solution,
as a comment (that was really just a copy of many times accepted here my answer for this very typical question).
After waiting more then 7(?) days, Timmie decided to accept Itusnr's answer: ... to download the absolutely(!) same file which was proposed in my comment(??). All that was done in 3 minutes(???)
Did Timmie really have enough time to download that
large file (1.8 MB!), install and check it(????)...

Here's the chronological info:
. July 29 - 06:39AM Posted Answer by Itusnr (check time above)
              06:40AM Question Answered (from EE email notification for me)
              06:43AM Answer Accepted (next email from EE)
P.S. Just in case if Linda, after looking at this thread will say -
Timmie maybe just a unexperienced user... and maybe he just didn't knew what's he was doing... . Then my next question: was Timmie awaiting online for Itusnr's answer at this time? I'm sure he did!
