I just downloaded and installed a file from the site, and I got a virus. Coincidence, I don’t think so. You got me. In fact, my NAV warned me about installing the application. The result, it took out my edonkey app. which is what I think it was meant to do.
Never trust any of these loser homegrown sites especially the ones that sound sincere. Download Divx Player from freeware.com.
“There is one VERY large issue with the Codec Finder. If you have Norton’s Anti-Virus installed and running, it may popup and tell you that the CF is trying to install something and Norton’s blocks it! I can promise you all now... There is NOTHING in the Codec Finder that will harm your computer! What it is is the Codec Finder trying to place an icon on your desktop and in your SendTo menu that does this! I have been trying to work around this issue, but I have found no safe way to make this work WITHOUT using an installer to install the program! And I have always just kept the CF small, portable and friendly to all computers. If you have ANY doubts about this, please contact me at my e-mail address or visit me on the forums! Thanks..."
The Faimous One is well respected and is sincere in everything he does. The error is actually down to NAV itself.
As you can see TFO would need to make an installer to get around the tiny NAV problem, which is not needed IMO. The file would end up being larger, instead of being small and ready-to-go from the get-go.
Play your movies with VLC player, it is a great media player that has all its own codecs.
I had a problem where a DivX video was playing the video part, but I had no audio -- Windows MP recognized the codec (which I installed on my system) but couldn’t figure out what Audio codec to use.
Downloading the VideoLAN VLC Media Player, as per the suggestion of “Bobby Bobster” above, solved my problem. I didn’t like the interface at all, but to be able to enjoy the final episode of my current favorite Sci-Fi show, it was more than worth the minor annoyances! So I highly recommend giving it a try if you’re having codec problems..
But always try downloading the appropriate codec first, if you know what it is -- more often than not it’s probably because the video requires DivX.
hellooo yes all are very good messeages and i have lots of avi films on my comp i once had that problem, i have heard that ac3 is good but for agessss i ave uses VLC paler this is the answer to your questions it works well!!!
