Hmm..I'm not sure, but my knowledge has always held that you needed to download the DivX codec, which allows quicktime to play AVIs

It's available here:

Another option is to get VLC and set that to open AVI files. Look for it on versiontracker.com

mplayer is actually better. but even with the divx codecs, avi's often look like crap, misaligned audio and video usually. I usually use mplayer to view them, then I use divx doctor 2 to convert to .mov.
