It means that your software does not have the same video "decoder" that matches the video "coder" that was used to create the video.

"codec" is short for "compression/decompression"

Your video player should ask you if you want to download the proper decoder (codec) from the Internet; generally, it is safe to do so if you trust the video.

Hope this helps!

When i plug my usb stick into the tv to watch a movie,it does not show,it will only show images(Photos)


Does your TV support the movie format you are trying to watch? Should be AVI, but actually not even all AVI movies are supported. If you are watching AVI on a software player, you can find the appropiate Codec, but you can't modify the video decoder of a TV set.

Doesn't see movies on USB flash drive


Maybe you have to put all avi files in the root (main folder, no subfolders) of the drive? Or your player might not even read this file?

What files do a hitachi L32HK04U L support as it wont play my file from my usb stick


This tv will not play , wmv, avi, mov, mkv, or divx, the hitachi uses the xvid codec only, which means your video file types must be mp4, and not the h.264 mp4 either....but true mp4 video, if you have a connected usb drive full of movies, best bet is to download "youtube downloader" (free off the internet) install it to your PC, and use the convert feature to convert your movies to the ipad video mp4 setting, with the "same as original " quality ticked....and convert all your movie files to the xvid codec your tv wants, youtube downloader can convert anything, any filetype even flash. trust me this works 100% i know, i have the Tv, and i do know about codecs and scaling..and metadata....do this will be your best bet guys !!! happy viewing

I plug my passport in to my tv and cannot find my film


Do you see any other files?
If you see, then would you check the compatibility (or readable) of movie files from your TV? (Please, check TV manuals first.)

Although TV says it read a file, for example, 'AVI', it does not mean to play all AVI files.
When someone makes AVI, many codecs can be used like xvid, x264 for video and mp3, ac3, aac and so on.

If you don't see any of your files, copy those movie AND photo files into any usb flesh drive. Then plug in and test.

Media players cant play my .avi movies. i copied a .avi movie from my friend's pc using a flash drive and moved it into my personal pc but my media players wont play it. it did not say it was a missing...


I assume you are using the Windows Media Player to play the .avi formats on your OS Windows PC?

If this is the case, you do not have the necessary "codecs" to play the .avi files. Download & install the latest codec package ie K-Lite Mega Codec Pack or K-Lite Codec Pack @ http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_Lite_Mega_Codec_Pack.htm

Hope it helps.

My toshiba laptop dvd/cd drive does notshow the movie.it shows that the cd/dvd is bein operative.but would not show on the laptop screen.please help me in this mater!!!!!!! thank you!!!!


Not quite sure what your problem is, if you mean you cant playback certain video formats ( avi/divx) you need the correct CODECS, you can download a player like VLC, it has everything built in, just download, install and play your movies

DOWNLOADING TO MEDIA PLAYER


1st of all, your Archos needs to be set to PC Hard Drive mode in the settings.
Then when you plug it into your pc, it will just show as a new drive.
You can then simply drag and drop movies, music, flash games, files etc.
The Archos accepts avi files with mp3 sound, however if you purchase the package which allows you to watch DVD's onthe Archos, then you also have a whole load of codec's which means it accepts Real Player files, Dolby Surround sound, you can copy 4.7 gb dvd's straight to it and much more.
