Where to find movies in VLC


VLC will only play back files it can recognise as video files. If the format of the movie you want to play back is not in the format that can be played back in, VLC might not even show the files up. This doesn't mean that VLC can't play the file at all. It probably means that you need the correct Codec to play the file format. Check to see what format the movie is in and then search for the correct codec to play it.

I was trying to view a file that i haven't completed downloaded yet with vlc media player. while building font cache vlc media player is mixing up two different video files of same name and playing them at...


There is no problem with VLC. You must be downloading a torrent and the file is partially downloaded in parts and hence VLC mixes videos. It happened to me too.. Dont Worry. Once the download is totally complete, VLC will play the complete file.

Regarding font cache it happens only the VLC is installed and launched.

Hi all .. when i drag the video to sony vegas 9. the video files are all in black and i can't see any preview of those while i can hear the sound of the video .. anyone know how to solve this problem.....


It sounds like a codec issue (compressors and decomressors that bridge the gap between different filetypes). I would suggest downloading some current codec packages. The two that should cover all of your bases are here
Shark 007 - http://shark007.net/ VLC - http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
download, install, and reboot, and you should be able to hear and see all your videos in Movie Studio
Cheers,

The window media player cannot open the file because it is either corrupt or does not support the format you are trying to play. can you help me ti fix to fix this problem


Hi. I think the problem on this issue is that the file that you're trying to play is not supported my your Windows Media Player. You can solve this problem by downloading updates for your media player or the codec packs like K-Lite. Also you can just download another media player like VLC Player, you can download this into google, just type in VLC Player and download and install it on your computer. This VLC players supports almost all video or audio file extension. Goodluck!

Vlc player gets hanged.


  1. OK, remove VLC Player
  2. Remove K-Lite codecs (VLC doesn't need them)
  3. Install these codecs designed for Vista
  4. After installing, restart, and play all video and audio files with Windows Media Player

Unable to play video clips or avi file on media player 11


You need to play these files on VLC or in Media Player Classic. You can play almost any media file through them.
If you don't have any then you can download VLC media player from the following links:
for windows os zip file 16mb: http://videolan.cdn.cacheboy.net/vlc/0.9.9/win32/vlc-0.9.9-win32.exe
windows 26mb:http://www.gtlib.gatech.edu/pub/videolan/vlc/0.9.9/win32/vlc-0.9.9-win32.zip

& for mac 19mb: http://mirror.leaseweb.com/pub/software/videolan/vlc/0.9.9a/macosx/vlc-0.9.9a-intel.dmg

And if you want media player classic here is a link to download it: http://mirror01.x264.nl/x264/mpc2kxp6490.zip (212mb)

If these players cant play your files then might not have given enough time to download your torrent or must have downloaded corrupt file.
