Question about Computers & Internet
There are a lot of different types of video files in the Internet nowadays. In order for you player to reproduce it, the correct codec must be installed in your computer to allow it to reproduce that type of file (a codec, short for coder/decoder, is like a driver program that informs to the computer all it needs to know to play that specific video fle).
Maybe you do not have the right codec installed in your computer. What kind of extension does this file have? .AVI? .MPG? .VOB? .WMV? .FLV? .MKV? No extension?
Without knowing the file extension, we can suggest you two different things:
1) Download and install the free VLC media player 1.1.7 from www.videolan.org - it is a good player that already contains most of the video codecs in its package, not needing to download separated codecs. You can even have a file without extension or with the wrong extension added to the file and the VLC will still identify the correct codec and play it.
2) You can download and install a package with various codecs, like K-Lite Codec Pack (from http://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm) or XP Codec Pack (from http://www.xpcodecpack.com/).
Hope this info helps you!
