    media player...

    I have a question about windows media player. When I try to play certain videos on it I can only get the audio of the video and I can't see the video itself. Right before I hear the audio at the bottem of the playing window it says "error downloading codec" I don't know what that means.

    Are there just some videos that cannot be played with windows media player or do I just have to adjust some settings to see the video? Any help would be appreciated.

    You may not have the latest version of media player and that might be what is causing the problem.

    what type of file is it. i know certain types of files need certain codecs to play properly. you could download them from the net somewhere. updating your version of media player would also probably solve that problem.

    Uh oh. Someone has some splaining to do. :lol: It doesn't work. It says failed to open file, please check that it is a valid AVI or MPEG-4 file.
