In order to play .avi files using quicktime, I needed to download a Xvid component, I picked the first option.

The 'read me' file instruction:

To install this component, just drag the File "XviD_Codec 1.0 alpha.component" into Library/QuickTime. The Library directory can be found either at your home directory (to install just for the actual user) or at the top-level of your startup volume (this needs an administrator account). DO NOT PUT IN: /System/Library/QuickTime.

I followed the instructions, but it's still not working.

Alternatively, you could use VLC to play .AVI files. VLC is kind of like the Swiss Army Knife of media.
