    media player classic might work... Otherwise, there are avi repair tools you can download.

    Try mplayer.

    Try VLC.

    Try quicktime, but its AVI support is shitty.

    Both of the top two are free.

    Try importing the video into video editing software, like the one that comes with windows or OS X.

    If it is a divx file, divfix will rebuild the TOC. Works 99% of the time for me.

    All the above suggestions could help, as could avifix, avitrim, avislice or any of the other billion avi tools for linux. If you don't have linux, most of the same tools work under cygwin. You can also tell most of you linux viewers to just play the file in streaming mode which doesn't test the file it just plays whatever is there.

    One more thing: from now on get your large videos in chunks verfied with PAR files so if you miss a chunk you can rebuild it.
