Sometimes, you may run into a playback failure or 0xc00d5212 error when playing some AVI files on Windows 10 using Movies & TV app. As you know, AVI is just a long-standing video container or wrapper used to encapsulates video and audio streams encoded by different encoders. So, without the necessary codecs installed, Movies & TV will refuse to decode and play certain AVI video files.
However, rather than wasting time on install some codec packs that may bring security risks to your computer, the most dependable solution is to batch convert problematic AVI files to Windows Media Video .wmv format.
