.avi files?

Yes…I am a Newbie…

how do I play .avi files? Windows Media Player keeps saying “class not registered”

If it is a downloaded movie you might want to install Divx codec.

www.divx-digest.com

If it is a normal avi file you should be able to play it with Windows Media Player.

When you try playing the avi without having this codec installed Windows will probably try to connect with a MS server to find a codec but will never find it!!
You MUST download the divx codec on 1 of the sites Tax mentioned. And then install it offcourse! :wink:

A very very nice player much better as Media player is bsplayer you can download him on thispage all info that you need about it you can find here.
