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.

I downloaded an avi. movie from a bit torrent but when i go to play it it says i need a windows codec but i already have windows media player what do i do?


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.

Download this software,Install it. Plug your player to your PC.

Computer video problem


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".

Sync with Windows media player 11


Yes i know syncing is the easiest way to hook up archos to download files have you tried manually like drop & drag the files into the video folders? Some video formats work even in the new archos series some don't & you have to buy plugins. I personally didn't like using windows media player it reminds me too much of itunes

Windows media player problem


Hi Hardik,

Can you please open My Computer, which should list yrou drives. Click on Tools>Folder Option>File Type and scroll down till you see .avi.

Click on it, and it will show you software assigned to play .avi files. If it is not Media Player, click on Change, pick Media Player out of the list, then click on Ok and close those windows.
Next, click on this link, and then click on Download XP Codec Pack.
http://www.free-codecs.com/download/XP_Codec_Pack.htm

Save it to your deskop, or some place your can find it. Click on it and follow the prompts to install it.
If all that fails, may I suggest you download VLC, which seems to play any video file, here.
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

Click on Windows, pick a mirror, download VLC, save it somewhere you can find it, and just click on it to install.
Good luck!
