    Is this a number of problems?

    You cannot capture any dv-avi file?
    You cannot play back any dv-avi file except in Quicktime?

    What did you do to the pc about a month ago which may have caused this? Can
    you use system restore to go back before this point? Can you remove any apps
    that you installed at this date. It would appear that this might be the
    route cause of the problem.

    I am having the same problems.
    I recently had broadband installed but don't know if this is when the problems arrose. I don't know how to uninstall the drivers for broadband either.

    I'd also be grateful of help as I'm in the middle of a project too :)
