    When users try and play .avi files across the network from a shared location
    the user only get audio. When the file is copied to the local machine it
    works fine. SP2 was pushed to all desktops sense it worked last.

    Correct. This is intentional. You may be able to get an updated codec from
    the vendor to fix this, but the scenario you are trying right now is
    deliberately shut down in order to avoid substantial bugs in the codec you
    are using.

    That's about all I'm going to (and likely able to) say on that. Your
    options are either to upgrade or to convert the content to use another
    codec. I would personally recommend the second option.
