[QUOTE=servtrkr;2598645]I have several mpg files I either created from my camcorder or downloaded from the internet onto my Dell workstation running Windows 7 32 bit.
I recently purchased a new Asus laptop also running Windows 7 but 64 bit. When I try to play any of the mpg files on the Asus - regardless of what app I use to play them, the video is all choppy and basically un-viewable even though they play fine on my workstation.
Any ideas anyone?[/QUOTE]
It sounds like a missing codec for MPEG-2 on your laptop/windows. Here is a link to FAQs on codecs on the microsoft website:
To see which codecs you have installed in Windows Media player:
(1) On the Help menu, click About Windows Media Player.
(2) On the About Windows Media Player dialog box, click Technical Support Information.
Under the “other binaries” sections, you will see a file such as “msmpeg2vdec.dll” which is an mpeg2 codec for MP.
Hope this helps.
