Help - Can't open File

Hi, Have D/L 12 episodes of a television series. 10 work fine but when i load 2 in WinMedia player I get this error message:

>>Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.<<

Similiar error using DivX. I then D/L’d multiple copies of these files thinking that files were corrupted but same result on all copies.
Any help would be appreciated.

Google ffdshow and, see if that helps :slight_smile:

Get a program called Gspot. It will tell you what codec you need.

Or AviCodec. Gives you some assistance in finding missing ones.

Thanx to all that responded

If you haven’t solved your problem then try downloading VideoLAN VLC. It will play back almost anything without the need to buy extra codecs.

or you could try this codec pack
