Hi...

Usually AVI format is not a type of format that can be play already when we play. To play this file you need to have an player, I suggest you to download this type of player can play all format of video.

Download GOM player. Go to download.com and search GOM player download and install after taht you can play now the video.

Good luck!

Search freeware on Google and find an AVI codec file to download and install. Then reboot and try again.

Unable to play mkv, mp4 in vlc, Mpc or Potplayer. The video is just freeze or choppy. AVI and CPU reaches 100%. My system is Dell dimension 3000, Pentium 4, 2gb ram, nvidia 6200 pci video card and 250


Hi..

This is what happen to me also, but after i do some clean into my fan processor, fan graphic card, and do vacum inside my computer ( because has too much dust). Too much dust also can make your pc performance going bad.. settle about cpu performance.

Regarding you cant play mkv file and other video format. Did your computer has a software to make all video can run that we called codec code? Try to install it and play it. Maybe this software can help This is a link to download the codec code.

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

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.

I cant watch anything that is a video. or any video playback! how can i solve this?


Try download VLC Media player if that plays your video then chances are you need to download some codecs to play the .avi file like divx, xvide, and ac3 filter. All of these items you can google download and try your avi file again that should fix the problem.

Arc soft say;s im missing a codec flv codec's


Even the newest version of the Arcsoft Media Converter, I have found, doesn't recognize FLV files even if you have an FLV codec. Use a free program called Riva FLV Encoder to convert any FLV files to AVI format first. Then Arcsoft will recognize it.

Hey


If the video file you are trying to convert is in AVI format, get an AVI codec. If it is in FLV format, get an FLV codec. Same with Mpeg. The codecs are available for free online from many websites.
