Ok I have a movie that I downloaded (DVD rip) and the sound is out, I did a search and I got program called G-Spot and recommend the codecs I should use for Video and Audio and when you preview it worked like a dream.

Thing is how do you change the codecs?

It recommend DivX Decorder Filter for video and MPEG Layer 3 decoder for audio and I have noidea how to change this or anything so need advise.

Oh the file is avi format ok.

Thanks in advance

Cheers :D reply

Never heard of any how 2 changed of codecs of media players..but on the other hand depend on the movies itself. The most common AVI file could b encoded with either divX or Xvid(files compression of between 600MB 2 750MB) If U R using Window Media Player, then U’ll have 2 download some 3rd party codec in order 2 play or U can take a look at the lefthand side of this 4rum under Media Players n see/choose which player U likes.
PS: Open ur mind 2 other players instead of WMP from Microsoft reply

Yikes...big confusing words. I’m encountering the same problem. I’ve tried uploading a .MSWMM file onto several websites, but the codec they require is .WMV
Will I need separate software to change the codec? I don’t understand all this talk about filters. reply

I cannot believe nobody is helping anyone here. First, for people who are using video players and having problems download this player first it is called VLC and you should not be using anything else. This is the best and ultimate for playing anything on the net. http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

Now if you have an issue where you need to convert a movie say from .mkv to avi or DVD format download Total Video Converter, it basically does everything for you but you need to choose what output you want.

If anyone still needs help after this you can try me 2surfcr /at/ /g/m/a/i/l/./c/o/m reply

You don’t need seperate software for that, it’s a Movie Maker file, so you need to open it up in Movie Maker and then export it.
I hope this helped you :) reply

The easiest way to watch a movie that’s not working with your ps3 psp iPod or nowadays a DVD player with USB is to convert the movie with psp media player! U can download it from different places or just google it. Then u can watch the movie with no problems. I do this everytime I’m not able to watch or hear a movie... reply

Please everyone out there! Buy yourself a DVD player that comes with a USB port, it plays your home and dowloaded movies from your portable hard drive or from just a little thumb drive!!! Very simple and it only cost 40.00 at bestbuys!!! Read about them online and get the one you want for as little as 40buczzz! I bought a panosonic one 2years ago and haven’t rented or bought a movie ever since! So go out and spend 40bucs on a DVD player with USB port! It has saved me hundreds of dollars and no more stupid DVD all over the place! All my movies r in a portable HD, no mess and nooo scratches toooo!!! reply

I have downloaded a number of movies from hotfile, I wait hours to finish the down load only to find out I cant play the dam thing, either the files are damaged or in most cases I cant find a player to play them. I have tried WMP.VLC, tried to covert the video using any video converter, but I still cant play the videos, any suggestions on what to try next. reply
