cannot play downloaded file

Hi all,

I have jus downloaded a movie and when i try to play it on window media player 9, the searchbar and the time is moving, but there is no pictures, no sound, jus a balck screen.

I downloaded the DivX codec and the problem is still there. i downloaded the G-spot and it states that the required codec is installed.

could someone help??
thank you reply

What was the required codec that GSpot said was already installed? What is the FourCC code that GSpot gives?

Note a complete possible solution, but try playing the file using VLC ( reply
