Download the GSpot Codec Information Appliance from www.headband.com/gspot. Run it, and open the file in question. That’ll tell you what codec the video is encrypted with. Then, go to www.freecodecs.com, and do a search for that codec. Download, install. Simple.
Also download VLC (VideoLan player), which handles most files you’ll come across in everyday life, without any problems at all. Very useful.
All the best
Apologies. G-Spot can be found here, instead:
VideoLan Media Player is here:
Free-codecs is, in fact, here:
Sorry! Try again now!

I can’t get any my TV Shows like Smallville, Battle Star, and One Tree Hill. I’m trying to use BS Player the formats are avi. htv. so when i play it says error can’t find file. Do I need a video card?
Hey, I have a question, I’ve downloaded some movies from limewire, and I play them with media player, so far so good. But with some movies I haven’t got any sound, the player sais it needs nero video codec, can someone tell me how I get that? Thx in advance.
i too have downloaded k-lite and i still cant get vcd to play or convert with nero any one know why, as for downloading free movies i use turbo torrent program andgo on torrent sites (lot quicker and you get the film you want and not porn titled wrongly as you do in edonkey)if you find a good torrent site you can get very good download speeds i have downloaded a movie in 3 hours with 2mb dsl, you cant grumble at that can you. email me and i will give you a list of very good sites for torrent files.
But that is just as illegal as virtually any other method of downloading films from the net.
Downloading video codecs. First, download the GSpot Codec Information Appliance from headband.net/gspot (I think - if not, google it). Then, use that to find out what codec you need (open it, go File -> Open or something like that). Then, go to www.freecodecs.com and search for that codec. Download. Install. Voila.
Is there somekind of codec finder program that anyone know about and I can download. The reason I ask is cus I have this .mkv file and I have almost all codecs to run almost any a/v file. And run it in BS Player and it runs just fine, but before playing it it says something about embedded truetype fonts. I say yes to load the fonts.
The problem is that I can not hear the characters when they talk and I also do not see any subtitles. Which I think I am supposed to see. Everything else works fine though. The music and other sound effects and the video all work. Also, the video file will not run in media player classic. It finds the file and how long it is, but never starts. Just a black screen.
So, can anybody suggest to me a program or codec to play this? Or maybe somekind of codec finder program?
The only codec finder (as in the best, and the only one worth considering) is the GSpot Codec Information Appliance. Last time I checked, it could be found at www.headband.com/gspot. This might have changed, and if you Google it, you’ll find it. That’ll tell you which codec you need, and you can find that at www.free-codecs.com (do a search). If that doesn’t help, it’s not a codec problem.
All the best
Hi, I have an avi file which plays on my pc, but the images are very jittery. I checked on Gspot and it says that the file requires xVid codec, which I have installed.Gspot says the file should play fine, but it doesn’t - and when I converted it to an svcd and played it on my dvd player, the image was still very erratic, but the sound was fine.
Any ideas would be most welcom
