  2. Did you also install a DivX player?

    If so does it play the file properly?

    DivX files come in many different flavors and you need the latest
    codec to play some. Media Player (in my opinion being junk) has
    trouble with a lot of file types. You're much better off using a
    different player.

    The trouble with AVI files is it is just a wrapper. The actual file
    type inside the wrapper could be anything. To see, try downloading G-
    Spot which is a free utility that will scan your system and tell you
    what you already have should be able to play the file. If not, at
    least you're told what version you need so you know what codec to look
    for.

    To play a file in G-Spot once you install it. Just right click on the
    video file from Explorer and where it says "Open with..." select
    G-Spot from the list of applications offered. G-Spot doesn't actually
    play the file, it gives you important details about the file and what
    it found on your system that should be able to play it. It will also
    usually tell you if your file is corrupt. Media Player won't even try
    to play corrupted files, it freaks right away. Some other players
    don't.

    If a file is corrupt and it is some version of AVI then what's usually
    happened and it is common if you downloaded the file from the Internet
    is the file is missing it's header or the file's header got corrupted.
    Only takes a byte or two to mess things up.

    Lots of applications that can fix this problem either by rebuilding
    the file's index or patching over corrupt sections.

  4. If you tell me the web site you're having trouble with I'll see if I
    can get it to play on one of dozen or more players I have installed.

    It should generally work fine.

    If you click Web Help on WMP's error dialog, what URL does it take you to?
    That URL itself has a little extra data. =)
