Hi,

What you have here is likely a problem of missing codecs. Codecs are required for playing of files. I suggest the following solutions:

1 Install Gom player. Click here to visit the website. Along with that install the basic k-lite codec pack.

2 Install VLC media player. Click here to visit the website.

If the links do not work let me know. By installing the k-lite codec pack you should also be able to play videos from Media player.

You should not have any problem with the installation as it is very easy and requires only pressing the next button. When in doubt just choose the default options and let the installer do the rest.

And additionally I would like to inform you that files downloaded from frostwire are sometimes not actually what they appear to be. You can apparently download a 700 MB movie file but it will not play because it is NOT a movie file but a binary junk and possibly virus. This is infrequent but happens.

Please let me know if it helped or not. Thanks.

Dell latitude wont play mp4 video


dvancavage,

Your problem might be missing codecs. A codec (compressor/decompressor) is used to 'decode' a video or sound. A video practically needs 2 codecs; a video codec and an audio codec.

To resolve your issue, try installing K-Lite Codec Pack Pro. This will ensure you to play all types of videos and music in your computer. Install the program without changing the settings if you don't know how to change them.

Also, I suggest you un-install any other Media Players that you have and leave Windows Media Player 11 (upgrade it to 11; it's free!), QuickTime and iTunes. Set Windows Media Player 11 as your default too so you can automatically play all the files you want with WMP11. http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_li...

I can't play a movie with .mov extension


.mov files are specifically designed to play with Apple's Quicktime player. Try downloading the latest version of the Quicktime player from apple.com

Another alternative that resolves multiple issues for a variety of video formats is a FREE program called
VLC Media Player, downloadable for any operating system here:

Won't play


In general, if the video isn't playing right, you are missing software to play a certain file type, or missing a codec. Explaining this would take more space than Fixya allows, but i will give you some general hints.

Make sure you have the right software installed.
If the type of file it is trying to play is a Shockwave file, make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Shockwave from Adobe.
If it is a Quicktime video, make sure you have the latest version of Quicktime installed.
FFA Encoder and FLV Decoder are two codecs needed for correct YouTube play in many cases.

I don't know how slow/fast your computer runs, and what it is capable of, but being an A/V guy, I have installed Windows Media Player, Real Aduio, WinAmp, Media Monkey, Adobe Shockwave, Microsoft Silverlight,RealPlayer, and various other music software and codecs - all without slowing down my computer.

Hello Bluben,

Your Apple iPod should work just fine with Windows Vista providing you are using the latest version of Quicktime / iTunes.

Make sure you ran the youtube video through the Sansa Media converter, and that you have the latest version of Quicktime installed

Music videos are too fast


Re-run through converter
if that fails, download the latest codec for that file type - sometimes downloading the latest version of Quicktime is a shortcut method for finding the latest codec
