You should download the k-lite codec pack which contains every video & audio codec you will ever need. www.codecguide.com

Download the full codec pack, don't bother with the Mega pack as it contains stuff you will never need.

Note that if you are running vista 64 bit then you will need to download the 64 bit codec pack in addition to the k-lite full codec pack. Both are available on the link I have provided. Don't forget to rate me as I know this will solve your problems,

When opening uploaded video AVI file all I get is sound, no pic


That sounds like you don't have the proper codec to play AVI files. Even if you haven't had problems with AVI's before these files may be DIVX avi's instead of the usual Xvid. Download the full codec pack here: http://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm and install it. Restart your computer and try again and you shouldn't have any problems.

I've been experiencing audio and video problems for the last few weeks and have tried just about everything to resolve this matter. I'm able to play all music in wmp or watch downloaded movies but I'm...


you need to update your codecs.  a codec is a Coder/decoder hence the name.  the file is coded at one place and your computer has to decode it.  First off you have to find out what file isnt playing correctly be it a divx, and avi, an mpeg, an mp3 , an mp4 , a wav...... and on and on.  once you figure out wich one is messing up do a google search for the codec.  example divx = bad then search "divx codec download" and follow the links till you find one you can download.  scan it for virus then install.

should fix the problem.

How can i play AVI files on my media center/player on vista


Hi,
Windows Vista Media Center won’t play Xvid and Avi files, even if Windows Media Player will play these files. If you want to add support for third party codecs including Xvid and Avi files in Vista Media Center then you need to install the media control plugin for Windows Vista Media Center.
To install the Codec please click on the below link or copy the URL and paste it in your web browser..
http://damienbt.free.fr/index.php#download
This plugin allows Windows Vista Media Center to utilize te FFDShow decoder, which needs to be installed seperately ((FFDShow rev 1108 recommended: download the last version from http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow-tryout)) FFDShow adds support to Vista for MPEG-4 video formats like DivX, Xvid, H.264 and also alllows MP3, AAC, Dolby AC3, and OGG Vorbis audio files to be played back.
have any other queries, please let me know..
Thank you.....

Problem with .avi format files (videos)


avi is a standard video container, about any media player can play that, however many codecs can be used, especially Divx and Xvid, try downloading codecs for these,

personally i prefer the k-lite codec pack, it contains about every codec

AVI file is not running


With .avi files the issue is usually which video codec has been used to encode it - all players will have certain codecs installed, and if the second player you describe does not have the approprtiate codec then it will struggle to play the file - occasionally the audio codecs can have the same effect, also on video. In your video conversion program you should be able to choose from a list of codecs to use to encode the .avi file, check which one you used and then check it is installed on the computer that is experiencing the problem. Windows media player, if it is fully updated should be able to cope with the majority of codecs, the best player for .avi files at the moment is DivX player, available free for download at; http://www.divx.com divx player also may need to be fully updated after you install it, this is an easy procedure, just click "Check for new versions" in the "help" menu to make sure you have the latest divx codecs installed Hopefully this will allow you to play the files on both machines. If you still have trouble, then type the name of the codec used by your converter program into a search engine, and you should find a location to download it from with installation instructions. Hope this helps, ask again if you still have trouble :)
