Hi,

Click on the link below and download VLC media player >>>>>>>




http://www.videolan.org/vlc/




Try load the AVI in that. If it still won't play then you have wasted your time downloading a fake file.
A good idea is to read any comments left on the torrent site you use before you download any files.


Regards.

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.

Every time i open the GOM player it would ask for "FIND codec"


GOM Player includes many codecs (XviD, DivX, FLV1, AC3, OGG, MP4, H263) Along with different media format such as AVI, MPG, MPEG and DAT, GOM Player also supports streaming Windows media format (WMV, ASF, ASX).

Possible Reason:

* Ensure that you have downloaded a genuine version and not a broken file, which is likely to miss some codecs, GOM is a FREE media player with popular audio & video codecs built-in. So you won't need to install separate codecs for most videos. For those videos that require a separate codec, GOM Player will find one.

* Without the appropriate codec, you'll be prohibited from playing AV files/the codec for which the file you are playing is missing (playback error), which prompts you to "Find Codec" screen. In the case you need other codecs, the 'Find Codec' popup will assist you in searching for the correct codec to play your file. If you didn't find any: first reason is likely to be the issue.

Fixes:

*Search Result will be shown on a new internet page. Once youve found it, simply download and install to watch the AV files.

I am not been able to play themovie on window media player that i have downloaded from the net


Most movies saved on the servers online are not compatible with windows media player since they are uploaded in different formats to decrease size and decrease uploading time. Common files like Mp4, .avi, rmvb, .mkv, etc....

If you want them to play using the windows media player, you'll need codecs like Klitemega codec packs, acemegacodec packs. You can download Klite Mega codec Packs here. Download and install it, then restart your system and try playing the download movies.

If this doesn't help, you better use a player like Vlc Media player, (click here to download), Install and run, you will be able to play any type of media using this player.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have downloaded a movie but cannot played.


They are lots on downloaded movie that are not played, the reason is there are some movie are are needed to have Codec Pack.
What is exactly a Codec?
-> is a technical name for "compressor/decompressor" and "code/decode". These variations mean the same thing: a codec is a computer program that both shrinks large files, and make them playable on your computer. This programs required for your media player to play your downloaded music and movies.

Why do we need these codecs?
Because video and music are large files, they become difficult to transfer across the internet quickly. AVI is not iself a codec, it is a common "container format" that many different codec can use. Your Windows Media Player will often try to communicate the specific code it needs.
