It looks like your server is incorrectly detecting the type of your media file (notice that it lists the type as audio/unknown). Omeka needs to know the file's mimetype in order to embed the media on the page properly.
If you have any other, non-AVI formats to work with, it might be worth a try (and you'll get better cross-browser and cross-platform support also).
Another possible option is to directly edit your "omeka_files" table to override the detected MIME type (something like video/x-msvideo is what you're looking for).
thank you john. i tried other formats such as FLV, MPG and WMV and its rejecting them all. do u know what other formats i could use.
