You found a new name! I think you need help, this is kid’s game and is not funny. If you have a multiple personality desease I think is time to find your name and stop playing with this site.Have you ever heard about IP address? I know is a sleepy supermod on this site but honestly I lost my sense of humour. BTW maybe Bjarne is happy about the clicks so keep playing nobody give a damn about it. reply

Hey Amdone,
I am having exactly the same issue you were having. I am wondering how you solved it.
“i have a video file......when i try to play it on windows media player there is no picture just the sound.......
when i go to error details it says the following:
The H264 codec is required to play this file. "

I did download but it does not solve the issue.

Please guys let me know what \i need to do.
Thanks reply

What did you download bou3lam?
If you got the original ffdshow, it doesn’t have H.264, but ffdshow-tryouts does ( You may need the check some boxes during installation to enable it though.
Alternatively, you could use VLC Media Player ( reply

I personally feel very sorry for Miley.Basically, she is now a grown up girl, NO- she is a woman. She does not want to be a bbuble-gummy disney darling. This is COMPLETELY fair enough. There obviously comes an age when you don’t want 8 year olds to be your only followers.SO, Miley, (because she is now a woman), wants to do more mature things- make more mature music. She doesn’t want to look like an 11 year old anymore because SHE ISN’T 11 ANYMORE. She’s grown up- moved on from Hannah Montana. She is a NORMAL TEENAGE GIRL.BUT- the problem:Her 8 year old disney-following fans don’t like Can’t Be Tamed' and her new look. They don’t understand why she’s not Hannah Montana anymore and singing not Rockstar' and other Hannah Montana hits. They want Hannah Montana and little Miley back- they are not interested in this woman Miley'.ANDOlder people- people older than her, cannot take her seriously. She has always just been a little immature Disney girl who entertains THEIR kids in front of the TV. They basically will always see her as a little girl trying to grow up to soon.SO, THERE YOU HAVE IT. TO SUM UP: She’s grown up like every other girl. BUT Kids want her to stay a kid, adults will always see her as a kid. Poor Miley Its harder for her to get respect from anyone now I hope this helped! Her music videos are typical miley trying to still shed her disney image appeal to older fans obviously.. People will eventually get used to THIS Miley she’s changing, or maybe has always been this way we’re just seeing it now because she was so caught into disney that she needed to act like a robot now shes getting out of that, or shes just grown up faster than the others has changed honestly idk.. we dont know her personally so Shes not a little girl anymore she turns 18 on November.. yes, we know selena demi dont act that way theyre 18.. well thats why theyre their own person theyre not trying to be miley cyrus miley doesnt wanna be demi or selena theyre all different. Theyre their own people Everyone has a different opinion on them I think SOME people think its cool to hate miley.. and some others are afraid to say their opinion of liking her because they know the haters will eat them alive lets face it there are more miley haters then miley fans.. I don’t know if i like her or not Mainly because I don’t ACTUALLY know her none of us actually know her we just judge by what we see and how we see it.. Everyone has a different opinion but i do have to say that all the miley bashing going back and forth between the miley fans and the haters are getting REALLY annoying.. that’s just my opinion JUST SAYING If you like her then Good If not then good, fine But remember Everyone has different opinion . sorry for the rambling novel just expressing my opinion *hides from dislikes* reply
