    sorry, i miss read your post, you need a 3rd party conversion software to convert media files, search google for the specific file type you want to convert and then check they convert to the file type you require.

Cannot watch video in my computer


Update the media player to the newest version.
When media players go through upgrades, new codecs are often added to the player along with new features.
These new codecs give the player an ability to play videos in additional formats.
Download and install a codec pack for your computer-based media player from a codec website, like Free-Codecs.

See Below
http://www.free-codecs.com/download/k_lite_codec_pack.htm
The K-Lite Codec Pack, for instance, contains multiple codecs and works with multiple media players, which gives all of the media players that are installed on your system the capability to play any video file that uses those codecs.
Once you download a codec pack, go to the "Downloads" folder on your computer, right-click the codec pack and choose "Extract All" to extract the codecs and move the codecs into a folder on your "C:" drive.
The codecs integrate into your computer-based media players automatically.

Get a new player. If you have updated your player and installed all of the available codecs, and video still won't play in the player, the player may just not have the necessary components to play your video files.
Download and install a new player, such as Winamp or the VLC Player, to your system.

Personal Media Players
Find out which video formats your media player accepts.
This information should be provided in the user's guide that came with your player. iPod, for instance, accepts video only in the M4V, MP4 and MOV formats, according to the Apple website.
Convert the video file to a format supported by your personal media player in an online conversion system.
Some online systems that can make video conversions include Movavi Online Convert and YouConvertIt.
Remove the original video file from the media player using the player's software, such as iTunes for iPod devices.
Then, add the new video file to the software library and drag the new file to the device.
Once the video is in the correct format, the codecs in the media player should read the converted video file.

Sir my ipod could not show the film songs which been downloaded .In which format shld the download made.Is it acceptable VLC player and winamp


Hi, you can not use VLC player or winamp for ipod player.What you will need to do is to get a video converter to convert to the video file type of the ipod your using. And only Total Video converter that am sure enough to convert to ipod format.

You can download Total Converter from the below link:It has all the instruction you will need to use it.

Canon ixus camera says my movie clip is an error


The video files your particular camera makes should be AVI format. What media player are you using? I've heard of problems playing AVI files with Windows Media Player.
Try using a different media player like VLC or Winamp. There are also video format conversion programs out there for free. I use anyvideoconverter for that. You can get all of those programs from cnet.com's download center.

Horizontal lines in avi/divx files lenovo t61


Sounds like video codecs problem.

There are to ways to go:
1. (The better in my opinion): forget Winamp and Windows media player, and use Smplayer instead, which uses it's own codecs (and better in all possible ways). You can download it from here.

2. If you'd like to stick with Winamp or Media player, then uninstall any video codecs (not drivers!) from your computer (if there's any), then download and install a proper codec pack, for example: K-lite codecpack (basic is enough) from here.

Hope this helps.

You have to download a free program such as Riva FLV Encoder first, and use it to convert your Real/Winamp videos to AVI format. Once they are in AVI format, the Sansa Media Converter will recognize them.

Avi file


Please down load and install the latest version of media player for your version of windows. or you can download and install winamp with its video plugin which will play .AVI file easily. Also make sure that you have installed correct display driver for your hardware. Normally no video codec is required to play original .AVI file. I think you may have a DV video fire (.AVI) file. This will play if install the DV video codec. Media player classic will play most of the formats.
