    I dont know about avi, but you should be able to view a partially downloaded mpg file in media player. If you are actually in the process of downloading it, you can make usually make a copy of the file at any point by dragging the file with the right mouse button and selecting 'copy here' and play the copy.

    media player wont let u do that with avi files. Also, I know the copy and paste method of viewing files but don't want to do that every 5 minutes so I can watch every extra minute that is downloaded. It'd just be easier to watch it all at once in a "streaming" kind of way.

    AviPreview - A program which is capable of playing partially downloaded AVI movies. To make it unique, it is capable of playing files which are in the stage of downloading.
