    Avi files, all I get is audio!

    Ive had people send me .avi files and all I can ever do is listen to whats happening when its suppose to be a video.

    Ive searched all over and sites have told me to get codecs and such but even then I am baffled and not sure what to do.

    Can anyone help out a really dumb guy with a fabulous smile try to figure out how to watch these avi video clips? Please????

    Re: Avi files, all I get is audio!

    AVI files are more like a vessel than a type. For example, you might know how to open up a message in a bottle that you find at sea and to read the script that it's in, but you might not know what it means because it's in a foreign language. Therefore, you must supply your computer with the necessary dictionary (in this case, it's called a codec) in order for it to be able to understand that message. Otherwise, it might be able to read some of it, but not all of it.

    In this case, I bet people have been sending you files encoded with the DivX codec. It's really popular these days due to a two-pass encoder that allows for high quality videos with small file sizes.
    Woof!

    Download and install

    It'll play DivX/XviD/whatever.

    And for goodness sakes, stop using Windows Media Player and use MPC already!

    VLC Media Player is also a good alternative to WMP, and plays multiple formats.
