Video playback issues

Post by Fustrated RJW »

HI guys,

Can anybody help me? I downloaded a torrent that contained video clips. However when i want to play them i get the 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."

I have already downloaded every single codec i could find and still it won't play. I further more tryed to defrag them and still they won't play.
The same message appears everytime. tryied other media players like VLC and Quicktime but none work...!

Can anybody help me please!!??

Your going to have to try to convert the video to something that will play. Who knows what it is.

Thanks for the advice; however, tryied it, but it still doesn't want to work!!!

I also tried to identify the type with Gspot codec information and it couldn't tell me what type of file it is...

Is there any other way of getting it to play???

if vlc and gpot cant spot the codecs then i suspect this is one of those con jobs that do the rounds in torrent files, if i was you i would just dump the file and move on. these files often try to make you purchase a program to open the files up - then the files are usually just porn or some other junk.
