Here’s my plight, it is a tad long:
I downloaded an avi file of a tv episode which I do every week no problem. Well this week I downloaded the episode and there was no audio. Me being an idiot start looking around online and install the Nimo (sp?) codec pack which just caused a lot of trouble. First it results in the dreaded green sceen crap. Well I uninstalled all of the codecs I had and installed 3ivx which makes the video work perfectly.
Now the only problem is the audio which refuses to work at all. If I try WMP, it tries to download a codec but of course it doesn’t work. I have tried installing the AC3 audio codec but that didn’t work. I then installed the Divx Player and it says that I am missing Audio Tag 85. I got the file and installed it yet the Divx Player still gives me the same message. WMP also doesn’t recognize it.
Does anyone have any suggestions on where I should install the Tag to? Is there a specific audio codec or audio pack that will work for me?
I have tried using Gspot to analyze my vid but it refuses to render the video so I don’t even know what codec I am missing. I have tried the Video Toolbox and it says I need the MPEG Layer 3 codec which I have tried to find and install yet it does nothing. Does anyone have any tips?
exact same problem here... every week downloaded the new episode of scrubs/joey and until last week had no problems. only difference i can see is that the file is mentions 'xvid' in the file name... not sure if that means anything to anyone?
to solve this problem you need to go to start>run>type"regsvr32.exel3codeca.acm” then hit enter. this should give you a success message click ok. next go start>run>type"regsvr32.exel3codecx.ax” and hit enter. This will now allow audio to be played
to solve this problem you need to go to start>run>type"regsvr32.exe l3codeca.acm” then hit enter. this should give you a success message click ok. next go start>run>type"regsvr32.exe l3codecx.ax” and hit enter. This will now allow audio to be played. for nexbies dont add the (") had the prob with episode 17 of joey works fine now
I tried typing that in but it wouldn’t find the file. I have exactly the same problem and nothing helps. Where did you actualy get the tag 85 from? HELP!!!!
thank u so much, hicky. it really works.... to shelley...maybe u have used "|" instead of “l(small L)" in front of 3codec
It didnt work here either. Couldnt find the file “regsvr32.exel3codeca.acm”. I also downloaded the Radium_Mp3Codec, but that didnt help either :( Please help....
Can somebody tell me where to get the audio codec tag 85 for divx player? I’ve looked everywhere and I can’t find it. I’ve also tried running “regsvr32.exe l3codecx.ax” but I get a failed message. HELP!
the file you are looking to download is mp3codec.zip when extracted this gives you the fraunhoffer pro mp3 you can find the site easily by searching for tag 85 audio codec through google.com once installed you still have to register the drivers
For a momth I was using Divx Player for my .AVI files. It was excellent experiance. But because of the Audio Tag:85 error. Not even a single avi file can’t produce audio format.
What is the solution for this error?
Please send me the solution for this error.
Or even suggest me any software that can solve this error.
I installed the mp3codec.zip, but i still get the same problem.. What is this??
I can’t believe i’ve also run into this problem....everything was working fine a week ago~! I dl’d the mp3 codec but i can’t use the run command still...arghhhh!
TAG85 download this codec “http://download.divxmovies.com/mp3codec.zip”
then extract all the files and run to install it. as soon as you have done that go to start>run> then type
click ok. if you get a success message. go to start>run> then type
click ok. hopefully you will get a success message.
hope it clarifies things.
