First off for anyone trying to play films or whatever I would have to get a program called GSpot, it’s free and tells you what codecs you need to watch the film that you have. All the answers are on the site I posted first but here is the GSpot Download link anyway.

http://download.divxmovies.com/gspot22.zip

At the bottom of the screen, on GSpot there’s a RENDER button. If you press this and it can’t render both video and audio then you need to get the codecs that it suggests.

Get back if you have any more questions...

Lastly if you’re trying to open the codec with Media Player I wouldn’t bother it will unzip on its own and find its way to where it needs to be. Also you may or may not need codecs from Microsoft themselves to play avi files in Media Player. If you have no idea what I’m talking about use Google and search for forms that have your same problems. If you have a problem then someone somewhere has an answer. reply

I belive, it is with the tag 55 your problem are.

Format tags, such as tag 55, are used by the Player to identify which decoder to use to play back your content. If you get the following error message, “The audio codec identified by the format tag 55 is required to play this file”, then the MP3 decoder on your computer has become corrupted or damaged in some way, and needs to be replaced. To fix this problem on a computer running Windows XP and Windows Media Player 9 Series:

From the Start menu, click Search.
Under What do you want to search for? click All files and folders.
Under All or part of the file name, type l3codeca.acm
Click Search.
When the results are displayed, right-click the file and then click Rename. Rename the file l3codeca.bak
Open Windows Media Player.
From the Help menu, click Check for Updates. An up-to-date version of l3codeca.acm will be installed on your computer.

Go to " http://www.divxmovies.com/faq " and click on " DivX Codec " which is in the top left corner of web page. Then go to " Downloads " and click on " DivX Codec for Windows ". Save to Desktop then install and Windows Media Player should work fine. reply

Ehhrrrmm, i downloaded the codec and Gspot, but it doesnt make any difference!
I dont get the idea from both of the files.

My problem is:

I want to play a song in Windows Media Player, but when I press “play” it says that it cant play without codec 55. Then I press the “Help on the Web” button, but that doesnt help a sh*t.

So, what do i have to do?? reply

Feedback


did what you said gilmour and as soon as i renamed the file it disapeared from the list then ran win media (10) without searching for update and all worked fine didnt have to search for update i guess player 10 is getting like realplayer in that it sees what we do and updates itself

i wonder if windows media player 10 is a clone of that evil little player that follows us around and records what we do ie (realplayer)

thanks again
