quickcam driver causing probs with avi driver?

I recently installed the CU software (cornell win3.11) and my bw
quickcam. After finding the appropriate web sites, I was able to to
send and view camera videos. I had to modify a line in my system.ini
file to msvideo=quickcam.drv, remarking out the avi driver file that was
previously on the msvideo line.

Now when I attempt to play an avi file created on another machine, I get
an error about the version of the msvideo.dll file.

I have heard from win95 users who do not have this problem, but this is
win3.11 and there don't seem to be as many of us anymore. I would like
to be able to play avi files again on this machine without having to
remark shuffle these msvideo lines and restarting windows each time.

Any suggestions are appreciated.
