- Windows Media Player more often than not, especially v5-7 does not
contain the .avi (mpeg4 codec). If you are using older than WMP-8
then you need to find the mpeg4 codec for media player (microsoft
does not offer the codec). If you use p2p file sharing, search in
software for "mpeg4 codec" & download the one for win media
player...be sure to scan for viruses.
Probably, the easier method is to download the divx player from
divx.com (free). That is my freferred choice for vcd's, as
most .avi files one has access to especially in p2p networks is
written in divx format.
A good example is the "Twilight Zone" .avi files smaller than 150mb
on p2p networks can ONLY be played with divx player.
- For those looking for codecs to cover all your bases, I've found
that the SLD Codec Pack is superior to most I've found on the net.
It's easy to install, has never caused any conflicts for me, and it
even includes Zoom Player, a superb DVD/Divx (and all other
formats) media player (and yes, it will play *anything*). You can
get the codec pack here:
DVD player (Zoom Player. Newest version can be downloaded here,
Mp3 encoder with Media Player
Professional Mp3 codec
DivX (all versions)
Playback old divx ( format Divx ;-) Audio )
Play / compress WMA
Play Ogg Vorbis & Xvid format
Play / compress Microsoft MPEG-4 Version 1,2,3
