I have “downloaded” a few movies, that I honest to god actually own on dvd, but I downloaded them from the net in .avi 700 mb form.
While some of them work flawlessly, others don’t work at all or no audio or only audio.
Two files I have, which when I right click, advanced, properties, it says it’s encoded with XVID, which I have installed. Other xvid movies play fine, and I believe Installed the latest version of what I could find, non-beta.
This movie plays video, but the audio does NOT work period.
Another few movies, which I all seriously do own, will play for maybe a few seconds and then give me an error “One or more codecs could not be found” or something like that. I right click, properties, advanced on this one, and it says the file information is unavalible. I could just rip them from the dvd’s I have down stairs, but I prefer not to go through all that trouble, it takes my computer like 8 hours per movie to rip into divx.
NOTE: ALL of these files, play absolutely FLAWLESSLY on my xbox (modded) with Xbox Media Center/Player. Audio work, video works, no freezing or crashing, PERFECT. Why won’t they work on my computer?
I have divx 5.11 pro, xvid 1.04 (or something like that I think), nimo’s codec pack installed.
What should I do? Another few files will crash once they get too far into the movie, one of them specifically on the last 5 minutes, I run divx doctor or something, the repair thing for fixing bad divx movies, but once that runs, the movie is really messed up, it won’t even try to play in windows media player 10, it gives an error before ever starting the movie to play.
Thanks in advance!
