Video files are stored in many file formats and require different codecs to be installed on the PC for the video to play properly.
Alternately you could try downloading VLC player, it seems to be able to paly a lot of DivX stuff not payable by other video players.

My video cannot be played

Can't really tell from your description what the exact problem is.

If it won;t load then you may be trying to load either a corrupt file or one not supported by the player. Media player handles a lot of file types so it usually is a bad video file. Other than a few Macintosh or apple based video formats havn't had to use another player.

if you can hear the video then all you need to do is install a video codec to see the picture. You can download a few free codec packs. These will have literally hundred of codecs. A codec is simply a translate or a type of video driver. Each is different . Some like DivX allow for a very small file size with a great picture quality. (This is called compression)A few seconds of high grade video may be say 501-0 mb in size using DivX but without a codec it would be 200-300mb in size for the exact same video. That is why they are used. The problem is there are so many differant ones you can't be sure of which one you will need. A codec pack has hundreds of these which are then automatically loaded when needed. Two real good and FREE packs are K-Lte and FFD-Show. Just download one of the packs (pick any of the setups but you only need on of the two smaller ones)
Just go to and pick one of the two and install and this will fix any codec issues.

If it possible that the media player is the problem. ie the program is corrupt. You can download a new copy from Microsoft and reload it and you can also get one of the codec packs which comes with a version of player.

If none of this fits your problem just respond here and someone should be able to help you out if you can describe the problem with more details.

I cant install adobe flash player. It keeps coming up with reading error

Common problem. First, you should uninstall all versions of flash already on yuur computer. Then when you go to the adobe site, don't install the program, you want to download it and install it later. Many times, you cant install it into your browser when the browser is already running.

I don't think that you have it. I just 5 days ago had this problem. You are surely using an upgraded browser. Please download the flash player.

I can't open videos requiring flash player eventhough i've already installed it

If you have Adobe flash player on your computer and you get the message on youtube to download the latest version of Adobe or turn on your Java in place of the video you want to watch, then look at your toolbar at the top of the screen and if there is a pink bar that says the website wants to run an Add On for Adobe flashplayer then click on it and select Allow Add On or Blocked content and the video should run fine.
