play it with vlc media player
if you absolutely want to play it in windows media player, install ffdshow-tryouts (but that doesn’t work 100% of the time. neither does videolan, but it’s less likely to fail)
You should be cufarel when downloading codec especially when you get the movie from torrent. They might be downloading virus instead.anyway WMP sux.Try another media player like VLC. I have never need to download codec when using VLC
Hey guys..... i downloaded a torrent file, it says i need the WMP codec, but when i play it with WMP it redirects me to a site.... it is fully downloaded and i need to know if i must delete it... when i play it with VLC it says i must play with windows..... Please help
You can download VLC player which will (probably) play ANY popular video format you would think of.
Additionally, you can download ACE Stream and watch videos directly from .torrent files (from TPB or similar sites) without waiting to download them directly to your computer.
