It seems you don't have any codecs... The problem is not in windows media player.
Just install a codec pack like http://www.free-codecs.com/download/codec_pack_all_in_1.htm

Hope to solve your problem.

SOURCE: i downloaded an avi. movie from a bit torrent but

Hi,

Click on the link below and download VLC media player >>>>>>>




http://www.videolan.org/vlc/




Try load the AVI in that. If it still won't play then you have wasted your time downloading a fake file.
A good idea is to read any comments left on the torrent site you use before you download any files.


Regards.

SOURCE: i have a compaq presario

Go to google and do a search for Kazaa Codec Pack. Download and install the pack. That should take care of it, if the source files weren't encoded with the audio out of sync.

Hello, maybe you're missing a vital codec....so google "codec download" and find a site from which you can download a full suite of codecs (no charge) and it may fix your problem.Else, what media player are you using? try opening it with windows media player. (You'll prob. still need codec download)

Cannot play DVD, cd video wont play to media player


not sure whether its a problem with the drive or a problem with windows media player. Take a can of air and blow some onto the laser of the dvd drive, this will make sure that there is no dirt or dust on the laser.

Once you do that put the dvd back into the drive. Give it about 20-30 seconds and then see if it tries to pull up the movie if it does and your getting errors from windows media player then we know that the drive is working cause its seeing the movie properly.

At that point, I would suggest downloading the latest version of windows media player.

Go here to download the latest version of Windows Media Player 11.

After doing that and installing it, try playing your movie again, in fact try several movies just to make sure. Windows Media player may want to download Codecs, if it does then let it. This will allow it to recognize dvds better and quicker.

If the codecs are updated and you still can't get it to see and play movies then I would suggest using a different dvd player such as Cyberlink PowerDVD located on this page:

Dvd player not working on desktop computer


If the problem is that it just wont play or recognize DVD movie but recognizes CD then you may need to download a DVD decoder.

Windows Media Player ( depends on the version) doesn't come with DVD decoders so you may have to download it OR :

You can download WinDVD here.
