    This is usually due to damaged, misconfigured, conflicting, or poorly written codec drivers. It is possible, that other media players will crash when they attempt to play this file as well. Go through these links:

    Use Gspot or other codec identifier to know exactly which avi codec is causing the problem. It is possible that the video drivers are causing the problem. Try re-installing Media Player.

    It is most likely the encoding on the avi that is causing issues. Try downloading new codecs for DIVX and XVID. Try this program: http://sourceforge.net/project/downl...se_mirror=nchc
    This may help you.
