Cool Vista VLC player and .avi

As Im sure it is with many people, the only way to go when playing those weird video files you download,VideoLan VLC player is the only way. After installing this on vista and trying to play an .avi file I found that it didnt work with default settings. Here is the simple fix for all those who run into the same:

Goto Settings->Preferences
Click the advanced options box (lower right)
Expand Video
Select Output Modules
Select Either OpenGL, Windows GDI, or DirectX video output
save and you should be all set

Hope this saves someone a little research.
