Question about Computers & Internet
I am not able to play the file with extension .avi in my windows media player. I have the latest version of windows media player i dont know the version name but i am very sure it is latest.
I have already done the check-up of all my hardware. Hardware is running smooth and fine. All the files with extensions other than .avi are also running on the player. It seems to be some software or codec problem but i am very much confused please help me resolve my problem.
Can you please open My Computer, which should list yrou drives. Click on Tools>Folder Option>File Type and scroll down till you see .avi.
Click on it, and it will show you software assigned to play .avi files. If it is not Media Player, click on Change, pick Media Player out of the list, then click on Ok and close those windows.
Next, click on this link, and then click on Download XP Codec Pack.
Save it to your deskop, or some place your can find it. Click on it and follow the prompts to install it.
If all that fails, may I suggest you download VLC, which seems to play any video file, here.
Click on Windows, pick a mirror, download VLC, save it somewhere you can find it, and just click on it to install.
