This will be a short solution. Or maybe not. Let's try.

Download the l8est audio/video codecs. I recommend the Windows XP Codecs:

download and install VLC player. This player plays all formats of media ! I rarely use media player.

One thing you could also try is to download and install the latest direct X redist.

Kind Regards

Films on usb have no sound

suggest downloading as many Android media players onto the TV from Google playstore and try them all. There will be some AVI files that just don't play on Android you might be able to convert avi to another video format with a file converter program.
Suggest VLC player but it is troublesome on android operating systems.
might work on your laptop or computer for the avi file.

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 @

Hope it helps.

Is there another way to download videos on to my device without using a philips media converter

Most MP3 players can play avi movie files. If you download avi movie files to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 player then it can play them without the need to convert movies to avi files.

H264 is a "mov." file. Windows media player11 and Power DVD 9 do not support this type of file. If you don't like QuickTime, there are many free media players that will support it (VLC is a good one). You could convert the mov. file to an avi. file with a video converter program. Then your avi. format movie will play in WMP

No audio on AVI files

Hi :

I would download virtualdub (free), install a divx convertor (free to some level), and input your original file in virtualdub (file-open file), check the video tab from VDUB, click compression, select divx, and save the file as an .avi file on harddisk of yr computer. If finished, check this avi file with a media player (winamp or so), see if it plays correctly, then transfer the file to your Archos. This will work.

I believe, when you converted, a stray codec was used for audio)

Avi file

Please down load and install the latest version of media player for your version of windows. or you can download and install winamp with its video plugin which will play .AVI file easily. Also make sure that you have installed correct display driver for your hardware. Normally no video codec is required to play original .AVI file. I think you may have a DV video fire (.AVI) file. This will play if install the DV video codec. Media player classic will play most of the formats.
