If not... perhaps a codec problem? I assume .avi files play fine in Windows Media Player and other players?

There are a small handful of file extensions that describe that a computer file is a video. These include
avi, mpeg, mov, rm, wmv, qt, swf
Plus a few others.
Think of these as groups of a certain form of video, within those groups are lots of individuals. Liken this to animals, there are dogs, cats, snakes, birds, rodents and so on.
Within these groups are several types. For instance a dog can be a Poodle, Jack Russell, Alsatian, King Charles, Greyhound etc.
The term avi can mean any one of perhaps a hundred different types such as DV, MPEG4, uncompressed, MJPEG, DivX, Xvid, RLE, YUV, Cinepak and lots more.
You need to be more specific.

I've never used VLC... but it's quite odd that WMP, WinDVD and Winamp crash when you play a DVD. Something is amiss there, for sure. It's possible VLC and it's codecs are messing with GA 5.
If you right-click the .avi files and select properties, it should show the codec they are encoded with on the Summary tab, and video sample size (8 bit, 24 bit, etc.). What do you see there for some of the .avi files that don't load?
