The secret is:

garbage in --> garbage out

You can only view that quality that's in the source (you downloaded) but never make a better quality.

"but when i d/l movies"

This posting, and all postings regarding downloaded videos, should be posted in the "P2P" sub-forum here...

Not only that people should read the stickies before they post, would save everyone some time.

AVI is simply a container format. Many different compression formats (for example, DivX and Indeo) can be used.

Do you need a different codec for better quality? That depends. Most of the time it is best to leave the decoding to their native decoders (i.e. DivX contents with DivX decoder and such). For decoding MPEG-4 compression formats however, I personally found FFDShow to have very good quality, often surpassing those of native decoders.

p.s. does it occur to you that most of the postings here, except for TheWolf's, offer hardly any help?
