If it is a "part file", it means that u downloaded one of many parts. You need all the "parts" to unzip the video file. So go back to where you got the file and look for the missing parts. they are usually referred to as part1, part2, etc. A codec for real player cannot help you as you don't have the entire video yet. Give me more details about your problem and i will try to help you further Where did you download from, name of file, whats the extension, etc

MPEG video plays only sound, not picture


I think it might be either a CODEC or memory issue. The CODEC thing can be solved by downloading the K-Lite CODEC pack, which you can find free via an internet search (see below). The memory issue is harder to solve. You need to see when you are playing the video if your CPU is running very high. If it is then you will struggle to play the track on your current computer without improving the memory. However I think it more likely that it is a CODEC issue since both the players you mention are not set up to play some MPEG files, as not all CODEC's are included.

You can download the CODECS here:

However always use the advanced option for installing as they do like to put on software that might change your default browser. You can decline these with that option.

Some people use VLC player, but all though this will play just about every video file, it will turn the icons into a thing that looks like a traffic cone! So I don't recommend it.

Cannot watch video in my computer


Update the media player to the newest version.
When media players go through upgrades, new codecs are often added to the player along with new features.
These new codecs give the player an ability to play videos in additional formats.
Download and install a codec pack for your computer-based media player from a codec website, like Free-Codecs.

See Below
http://www.free-codecs.com/download/k_lite_codec_pack.htm
The K-Lite Codec Pack, for instance, contains multiple codecs and works with multiple media players, which gives all of the media players that are installed on your system the capability to play any video file that uses those codecs.
Once you download a codec pack, go to the "Downloads" folder on your computer, right-click the codec pack and choose "Extract All" to extract the codecs and move the codecs into a folder on your "C:" drive.
The codecs integrate into your computer-based media players automatically.

Get a new player. If you have updated your player and installed all of the available codecs, and video still won't play in the player, the player may just not have the necessary components to play your video files.
Download and install a new player, such as Winamp or the VLC Player, to your system.

Personal Media Players
Find out which video formats your media player accepts.
This information should be provided in the user's guide that came with your player. iPod, for instance, accepts video only in the M4V, MP4 and MOV formats, according to the Apple website.
Convert the video file to a format supported by your personal media player in an online conversion system.
Some online systems that can make video conversions include Movavi Online Convert and YouConvertIt.
Remove the original video file from the media player using the player's software, such as iTunes for iPod devices.
Then, add the new video file to the software library and drag the new file to the device.
Once the video is in the correct format, the codecs in the media player should read the converted video file.

Video wo'nt play on XP


To play any media on PC needs codec to support it. If you are playing video on Windows Media Player, go to Tools - Options - then in opened dialogue of options go to DVD - Advanced . Here (Properties dialogue) you will find the supported codecs for different media. If the video file you are playing is not mentioned then the video won't play. So download the required codec to support the video file. A better option is install PowerDVD software which plays almost every video file. Download the old version software from the following link.
http://www.oldversion.com/download-PowerDVD-7.html
Name: Deluxe
Serial Key of Power dvd 7:
7GP2X-RWAWT-QMEQA-6EZ9U-GE356-W3VQD


Also install real player.

What I do is download the klite codec mega pack and be sure to check Windows Media Player as one of the players to use it on when you download klite in the configurations. Or you can go and get VLC media player which has all the codecs you will need to play these files. This is what I use. So I know it works. Here are the links below. I hope that this assisted you.

Can not play video in my pc


hi...

looks like either you don't have any video codecs installed or your codecs got corrupted.

There is an easy way to get around this issue.
There is a video application called VLC player. It is very powerful video player. It can play almost all common file formats and its free application. you don't have to spend any on this application. A real must have application.

Since this software depends on its on codecs, after installation, you can play video files on this application.

You can get Latest Version of VLC Player here


Or if you wish to not to install any third party Media player, you can download and install multimedia codecs itself. Recommended codec is K-Lite.

You can Download Latest Version of K-Lite Codecs Here.

Hi simontwaley,

Try to download VLC Player. It might resolve the issue. You can download it from www.videolan.org.

The issue that your encountering is because your media player lacks those codecs that needs to be installed for you to be able to view those files. It is a common issue for almost all windows OS that doesnt have those codecs.

VLC Player can play almost all of the types of video files. Without installing those codecs.
