    You might try a 3rd party video player such as MX Player or Mobo Player...

    Thanks but it still doesn't play sound. Think it must be a codec problem.

    MX Player works fine on my S3. So maybe it's your video file's problem.

    Install a third-party video player on your S3 is a nice choice, but as far as I found not all the video files can be played well like the mentioned AVI files. I noticed that Galaxy S3 can support AVI files in DivX/XviD codes; while, when copying AVI files in other codes like MSMPEG4 to Galaxy S3, things become a bit difficult- I can't have a smooth AVI movie playback on my S3. In that case, an effective method would be re-code the files first with a 3rd party video convert program.

    Brorsoft Video Converter is the app I'm using. It can help me fast convert any AVI as well as MKV, MTS, FLV, VOB, MPG to S3 playable MP4 video. And It also works well for the new Samsung Galaxy S4 with the optimal video profile.

    Yeah, just video app called MX Player on your device to help you. It could help you play avi videos on your device.

    Wouldn't it be best to convert the file to a format that the S3 supports out of the box? If you have to use another app to do it, wouldn't that be a software render instead of using the hardware? It seems it would eat up more battery life to play a video that needs a specific app to play the file type.
