Hi Mike and Chipp,

RR uses QT, if QT is installed.
If not it uses the (poor ;-) build-in video capabilities of windows.
AVis with the RLE, Indeo3.2, Cinepak and Video1 codec (and even MPG, so
i've heard) are supported.
The MS-mpg4-clone is not supported and no DIV-x.
That means that you cannot use all the videos that WMP is playing.
I f noone can supply a list of supported AVI-codecs, i am afraid you will
have to check it with different AVIs by yourself.
(Please supply the list after that ;-)
Hope that helps a bit...

I know, i know...
...but QT is an industry-standard, even on windows.
Sorry for that, i couldn't resist ;-)
