Unhappy AVI Playing Problems

sponsored links
I am downloading AVI Movies from WINMX but my Media Player on XP does not support them. How can i play these movies and copy them to CD? I have downloaded the DIVX Codec Bundle but it doesn't seem to work. Also where can i download VCD Movies and be able to play them and copy to CD. I Have tried peer to peer programs but never get a full film.

your avi should work after downloading the right codecs, but there are certain avi files out there need the very latest codecs to play properly ( i need to update my codecs to finally realize that was the problem when my .avi's would not play. To copy the avi files to cd, just do a regular burn (drag and drop).

Does the audio work and not the video?? I had this problem on XP. Solution:

Go to the folder:
C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\

You should see a program called mplayer2. Use this to play teh movie and it should work (it is an older version of WMP that supports that particular format).

Good idea dcm. I never thought of trying that. I used to use that program earlier, but it moved a little slower than regular WMP.
