Hi, I have ubuntu dapper drake and cant get the video to work. It is completely updated and the videos are in avi format. Do I need to download a plug-in for avi videos to work and if I do where would I do that?

Hi!

By default the video codecs are not installed. Please, check this link for a guide about installing codecs and the like in Ubuntu.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Regards!

Congratulations PSBP753! I knew you would make it . Just a tip: Bookmark the link I gave you. It has helped me to solve nearly everything I ever wanted to do with Ubuntu. And it is because of handy guides like that that Ubuntu is my preferred distro today ^_^.
