Computer video problem

Alright , i have just got a new computer and i downloaded some video files (mostly like avi movies and flv's and mpeg's) but the problem is that when i click on any of them to watch them i always get a message saying that i need new software and that some portions of the file can't be played. and by the way , i have got real player gold and windows media player 11 too and everytime i try to watch a video , (i open the video in either real player or windows player) and neither want to play the video. Also all my video files read that their file type is a video clip or movie clip when they used to say avi and etc.???? (Any reason why?) so just please help me figure out what exactly i need to do man!!!!! i'd appreciate it!!!!!

Hi there

This is something you can try.

Go into My Computer.

Right click one of the video clips.

Select "Open With", then "choose program".

Now you should get a list of programs you can play the file with, the best ones are at the top.

Select Windows Media Player or Real Player.

Click OK.

Now if the video clip works OK....

Repeat the procedure, but this time check the box below that says "always open this type of files with the selected program".

How do you copy Youtube videos to DVDs using 123 Copy DVD Gold?


You usually download youtube vids as FLV files, there are plenty of free file conversion programs to change flv to avi or whatever format you want, you can then burn them onto a disc.
I have never used your software, so i am not sure if it handles flv files.If your dvd player will play avi/divx files, you could convert then to avi and burn them as a data disc using ant burning software, i use free software for this. CD burner XP and imgburn.
It sats this about your software..
  • Copy ANY DVD.
  • Burn YouTube videos to DVD.
  • Copy episodic shows like The Sopranos or *** and the City.
  • Autofit technology gives you the best possible quality.
  • Convert ANY DVD to DivX, AVI, Windows Media (WMV), and MPEG.
  • Burn videos downloaded from the internet to DVD.
  • Blu-Rays Upgradeable (Copy Blu-Ray Movies).
