I have some old AVI's that were created by a webcam.. I don't know how to get them to play anymore.

I just installed K-Lite mega codac pack & 321 video player hoping it would figure out what the deal with the video was.

Here are some details it returned for me.

Any ideas of how I can play it?

The format above is Indeo 5.

You can enable that codec with the Codec Tweak Tool (manage VFW codecs given in the start menu when installed in full mode).

Thanks,

Ok try in the players you are installing.

If you still get error try Digital Video Repair, which is a small utility for repairing (fixing) AVI files.

Check this and see this is a best solution for you or not.
