I love the Video app that came with my Archos 70, it can play all the formats I want to watch videos.

Is this Archos exclusive? If so, what do other Android devices use to play .avi files?

probably they use ffgmpeg/libavcodec, which is a open source video library, they compile/tweak it to work well with their decoding hardware , archos has been making portable video players for a while so they are good at this sort of thing

Archos has been known for years as an industry leader for video playback support. They've developed their own software. The 7HT shows what happens when they don't. Archos contracted out the 7HT and most of the videos which played fine on my 5IT would not play on my 7HT.
