    Please try ffdshow. did you try it?

  • Ekse Sep 10, 2008

    ffdshow decodes avi files also, it debends on what encodeing is used on the avi. It may work. or it may not. Give it a try please.

  • Ekse Sep 10, 2008

    on the original cd you should have the codec thats missing incase ffdshow can't decode it.

I have an .avi file dvd rip xvid that dont play and when i open it,the message reads"plase ensure windows media player is upto date.please visit www.dbmovies.info to get the db codec".


The video file you have might be encoded with a codec you don't have installed.
There are codec packs which cover the most of them, so that media players can play videos.
You can try downloading the most popular I know, k-lite codec pack from here. And try to play the video again.

If you don't want to mess with codecs and stuff, you can always try downloading vlc media player, that plays nearly anything without the need of separate codecs.

First check sound settings on control panel, ensure volume is not at minimum and computer audio is not muted. Test playing a CD.

this is usually due to Media Player or whatever player you use on your pc, not having the right codecs to decompress sound from camera file.

Usually you sort it out upgrading media player, you can download update from links below.


  1. Windows Media Player 10
  2. Cumulative update for Windows Media Player 11 in Windows Vista

When i download a youtube video, the icon is on my desktop. I click to open, and windows media player opens, but it is not there. where is it?


You need the Adobe Flash Codec for Windows Media Player. You can get it here.Alternatively, you can download and install VLC Media Player here. It plays everything without having muck about with installing various codecs.

Problem opening videos


Hi

Windows Media Player can't deal with some "compressed" video formats without special "codecs". A codec is a piece of software that allows a computer to encode/decode various video formats.

Please go here and download and install the free codec pack for Vista. That should sove your problems. :-)

Play dvd nothing - play s/d card (video) sound but no picture.


You need to update the dvd softwear. Check the default settings for playback of media,if it is set to windows media it won't work if you hav'nt installed the correct updates. Choose the Toshiba dvd player as the default player and it should work. If you prefer windows media then you can get the updated codecs from ' free-codecs.com ' Easier still,try uninstalling your windows media player and installing windows media 11, this will usually resolve the problem.

File won't play video


The reason that the video is not playing is because the video uses certain "codecs" to decode the video. (It is basically a way that the computer interprets how to display the video on your screen.)

You need to install a good codec pack so that you can play all formats of video and/or audio.

I recommend using K-Lite Mega Codec Pack. It plays everything from Windows Media (AVI) to Quicktime files and just about everything in between. This is a very widely-used and popular codec pack. It also comes with a much simpler version of Windows Media Player. (It shows as an older version...and even looks like an older version, but it is only based on the older version as it honestly worked much better than newer versions.)

Here is the link.

(Click HERE to download the codec pack.)

Just use the DEFAULT installation. Don't change anything. There is no need to. Once it is installed, it will use the version of Windows Media Player that I just mentioned by default.

But if you still wish to use version of Windows Media Player that you currently have installed, then you may feel free to do so. It will still play videos using the same codecs that were installed by K-Lite. (All A/V programs will use the codecs.)

Another player I have recently found is GomPlayer. Very nice interface. Clean and easy to use. Install K-Lite and try out GomPlayer if you like afterwards.

HERE is a link. According to the site, you may not have to install any other codec packs after installing GOMPlayer. That may or may not be true. It IS OK if you install both.

Good luck. Let me know how it goes. :)
