    You must install the plugins.

    Thank you, but I thought I had done that? Where is the best plugin for 64 bit, to include all plugins in one hit please?

    See Help, installed plugins to check for video.dll on the 64-bit version

    See i_plugins.txt in the installation folder, and the plugins page on the IrfanView site.

    You can also download installers from my help site (see my forum signature).

    Have you selected the external player in Settings, Video / Sound (plugin required)?

    If that is not it, please provide a link to an AVI file. I can view AVI files OK, but I have only one to test with.
