I've encountered the same problem in the past and now use VideoLan Client (VLC) to play .avi files. Also after looking for some other programs I came across MPlayer OS X. It seems to be legitimate.

Hope I helped some.

Hi! It works great with the divx plugin. Just download the plugin and you will be able to play avi files. Good luck
