Hey,

you won't have to worry about that.

Just download FFDSHOW and VLC MEDIA PLAYER.
Its extremely rare with this combination, to find a movie file that wouldn't play, and if it doesn't play with these two, its probably a fake one.

get ffdshow here, its the first link http://www.free-codecs.com/FFDShow_download.htm

more info about ffdshow - http://www.free-codecs.com/download/FFDShow.htm

Vlc media player - http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

After you got these two installed, you should be albe to play most if not all of the movies out there.

Thanks,
Niko

You need the Adobe Flash Codec for Windows Media Player. You can get it here.Alternatively, you can download and install VLC Media Player here. It plays everything without having muck about with installing various codecs.

I have a portable Kawasaki DVD player. It does not play AVI videos. Tellme what to do please.


This normally depends on what FOURCC the AVI has encoded inside the file.

Look here at my DivX Rox!! facebook group for the correct DivX FOURCC that will normally work on most standalone players on AVI with FOURCC =DIVX or DX50

Most DVD players that have DivX support require these two FOURCC tags, DIV3,DIV4,DIV5 and DIV6 wont always work but sometimes you can change this without re-encoding using a batch FOURCC changer.

As a general rule of thumb even when you change the FOURCC of the AVI you may experience audio lag on the file it is best to convert all AVI's to DivX using the DivX Convertor that is available with the DivX Professional codec costs $19.99 (£13.99) and is well work the money.

I have had some success with Xvid AVI's with FOURCC XVID but with audio lag and video jerks.

When i try to play my videos windows media player keeps saying that Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to...


I think I can help you with this as I was baffled by the same problem myself.
All Samsung Digimax cameras use very high quality AVI (MJPEG) to record video.
In order to view this on your pc you need the Xvid codec which is available FREE here:
http://www.xvidmovies.com/codec/
You may also benefit from having the FREE divx codec package available at:
http://www.divx.com/en/downloads/postdownload/divx/win
I think you'll find that this will solve your problem.
Good luck!

How do I play MPEG recordings?


Using Windows Media Player You need Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher and Sharp G.726 Audio Codec in order to play MPEG4 files from the Memory Stick on your PC. If you are not currently using Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher. Important: The Sharp G.726 Audio Codec needed to play MPEG4 files is no longer signed by Microsoft. If Sharp G.726 Audio Codec is not properly installed on your PC, it will not play MPEG4 Audio. Using DivX® You can also download a free DivX® Player and codec to play your MPEG and other video format files. DivX® for Windows is a free codec built to play every version of DivX content. The DivX codec also plugs into your existing video software so you can view and create high-quality DivX videos at a fraction of the original size. The DivX codec also adds DivX video playback support to most popular media players.
