Grrrrr, Embedding Media

Having lots of problems embedding .avi files on our Mahara v1.7 install.
This is the blow by blow account of the issue:
The question is, is it me, my PC or our install

This sounds like an issue with the mimetype of the avi file, i.e. it's a browser issue. It doesn't seem to be recognized properly by the browser. We've had this problem esp. when embedding PDF files because even though there is a standard for embedding those things, some people mess with the browser mimetypes and then they aren't recognized properly.
There are bug reports already at
https://bugs.launchpad.net/mahara/+bug/1045292 (specifically for avi and the mimetype you should only have in your browser)
The best will be to delete the incorrect browser bindings for avi.
