When i want download a video a message comes that unsupported content.

You need to specify yourOS(*Operating System) in order to solve this kind of problem, but any way isuggest you to to install VLC media player.lnk, because some of our OSdoesn't support the file extension of the video that you are trying to download. Using the WindowsMedia Player plugin with Firefox Toplay Windows Media in Firefox, you need the Windows Media Player browser plugininstalled. There are two different versions:
  • The original, which is usually included with Windows up until XP.
  • The new version, specifically developed for Windows XP and above, which is only available by download.
Thisarticle describes how to check for and install the Windows Media Player Firefoxplugin in Windows XP and above. Many Windows XP users will have the old pluginalready, but it is recommended that you install the new plugin, anyway. Note: Even if you already have Windows Media Playerinstalled, you may still be missing the plugin required to play back WindowsMedia audio and video embedded in Web Pages.

Cannot play WMV file

This is a type of video that can be played on your computer and portable media players. The most important feature of a WMV file is that its format allows large video files to be compressed, retaining the rich quality of the video. It is a file format developed to store video content in a compressed format, so that movies and other video programs can be viewed on a personal computer. These videos can be watched from the hard drive of your computer, or other media players. To play a WMV file, a set of codecs are required. A codec is a program that can easily read a file, creating video and audio formats from the provided data. WMV files may be played on Microsoft Windows Media Player and other media players as well. The latest version of WMV is WMV10.

There are several ways to play 3GP files. My personal favorite is VLC Media player (or if you prefer using Windows Media player, pls refer to 2)
  1. VLC ( media player (freeware) is presented as the easiest solution to playing back many of the common multimedia files that are available. However, while VLC does in fact support the 3GP format, it does not include software to decode AMR audio. If your files have AAC audio then technically, VLC should be able to play your 3GP files.
  2. Windows Media Player can technically play 3GP files, but you will need to install some extra software. Firstly, the 3GP container needs to be accessible and then you also need software that can decode the video and audio (H.263, H.264, AAC, AMR). You can use either

I can't play a video I downloaded from youtube something about the codec. I'm using a gom Player what is the solution..?

Hi. I think the file that you're trying to play is no being supported by your gom player. I suggest you download the VLC player from google. Just type in to google "VLC Player" then it let you download the latest version of VLC player. Download the player and install it on your computer, that VLC player would support almost all video and audio file extension or type. Goodluck!

File extension problem

It looks to me like a DVD file... What I mean by a DVD file is its come from a DVD disc you might have used on your PC and it can be anything like a text file, a language pack, a picture file itself but certainly not a video.

When Video DVDs are burnt, there are multiple files other than the video itself that show the movie menu screen on a DVD player such as "Play Movie", "Behind the scenes" etc. or a pack of different languages for a movie or something else. Such files mostly have a name that starts with VTS.

My mp3 & video files always converted into jpg files

I too had the same prob... But got rid of it with the help of help 2 design site.. Go through this..
A new malware virus MediaControl.exe found in some parts of central asia late this month.
It changes the extension of all the media files like AVI (.avi), Music (mp3, …) to .jpg.
This just canges the file extension. Not the file format.
To play the media file, you need to re-change the file extension to the previous type, or open the file using the media player.
Malware name is MediaControl.exe.
It internally creates a folder by name ”mcont” in AppData of OS drive. AutoRun inside mcont also puts the MediaControl.exe to the winwos start up of msconfig.
How To Remove MediaControl.exe?:
1. Kill the process MediaControl.exe is running.

Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to open the windows taskmanager.
Click on the Processes tab
Search the MediaControl.exe, Click on End Process button at Bottom right.
2. Remove MediaControl link from Windows Start up
Click on Windows Start Button, and on the Run option at the right side of the window,
Type msconfig on the form opened at left bottom.
This will open the System Configuration Utility
Click on Start Up tab.
Search for MediaControl, Untick the link. Click Apply -> OK, Click on Exit Without Restart on the dialog opened.
3. Remove the AutoRun from Computer:
Option 1:
Using Command prompt inputs.
Click on Windows Start Button, and on the Run option at the right side of the window,
Type cmd, to open the command prompt window.
Type the following command lines one by one.
cd C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
attrib -s -h -r /S /D *
del *
cd C:\WINDOWS\system32\mcont\AutoRun
attrib -s -h -r /S /D *
del *
Option 2
Using Safemode booting.
Restart the Machine.
Click F8 on Booting, this wil open the machine in safe mode for you.
Browse for the folder
inside C:\Windows\System32\
Delete the folder mcont.
Restart the computer in the normal mode.
Thats All.

We recomond you the AndRenamer program. You can download it here: []

Media Center file types

Yes, file extensions, .gif, .bitmap, .jpg are case sensitive. Just like if you tried to save a word document as .DOC then the file would look like test.DOC.doc. Change case and it will be fine.

WIndows Media Player may not be able to play all file formals.
