I also have downloaded a bunch of avi files from bit torrent. I have tried every codex I can get my hands on. I have also installed Pinnacle Studio 9, DivX Codec 5.1.1 Pro, XviD: 1.0.2.
Here is the file name if it helps
I have also used Gspot to test the file and it says it canâ€™t understand the format.
I really would like to be able to watch the episodes I missed during the marathon. If anyone has any ideas please shoot them my way.
Usually gspot’s pretty good at handling anything you throw at it so long as it’s an avi. The file might not be an avi.
Just to test try this:
open a folder, any folder (my computer for instance). click on tools, choose folder options. under the view tab uncheck the box that says 'hide file extensions for known file types' then click apply. Now check the filename of your video file again and check out its extension. (If it’s not obvious right click the file and choose properties, then read what’s in the white box at the top.)
I have my those turned on. The ext its comming down as is .avi . Im not sure whats going on but I cant I cant get it up and running. I think its possable it may be named wrong but I have 3 seasons of this program comming down and NONE of the files will run. There has to be something Im just missing.
Try feeding the files into the wildest programs. Sometimes people on file sharing programs mangle filenames so much you can never tell what’s inside. I’d try media player classic, winzip, winrar, and a cd burning program (in case it’s a cd image).
okay, I downloaded the following from bittorrent but it wldn’t play :
[AonE N!]Hunter x Hunter OVA2 Ep01-08
I’ve tried everything I cld, used different players, download different video codecs etc... still can’t play... gspot identified it as invalid avi file.
Does anybody have any idea what shd I do?
Try playing it in VideoLAN Client (VLC) - www.videolan.org
Remember that GSpot is primarily good at identifying and reading valid AVI files, while it struggles with the new formats out there, such as MKV.
Thanks for your advice. I’ve already tried using VLC to play but doesn’t work too.
Any other suggestions??
