Pentax K-3 .AVI file

I have not been able to get any program to view my Pentax K3 .AVI files. I have the Pentax Digital Camera Utility 5, Corel PaintShop, and Adobe Premier Elements. How can I view these files?

Use VLC media player:
VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework!

It's free.

Yup, those are videos (from interval shooting, right?) so you'll need a video player. VLC is probably the best player out there as it supports a variety of codecs, is free of bloatware, and open source.
