Every time I try to play an avi file QT says it's missing the movie file compressor and when I try a software update it tells me that an update is not required.
Can anyone help me here? Why can't I play avi files?

Try VLC or Mplayer.

Both can be found on macupdate.com

Thanks! but I should have mentioned that I'm on a corporate network machine at work and there is an administrators lock on my Mac which means that I cannot install any new software without a user name and password!

Actually I've just downloaded VLC and as it's a desktop mounting utility, it runs fine without having to install!

Great thanks!!
