Hello there,I have a sony erricson mobile phone,the other day i did a short video of my granddaughter using the mobile phone i downloaded the clip onto my pc but cant play it i have windows xp pro installed wmp 11 & cyberlink power dvd player any thoughts please?? Thanks.daiol.
Hokay, confusing isn't it? Every file on Windows has a 'filetype' so that Windows recognises what sort of file it is and (potentially) what to do with it, e.g. play a video. It's usually a 'three-letter extension', preceded by a full stop, added to the filename. So if you had (say) a JPEG image called MyPikky27, the full name of the file would be MyPikky27.jpg
Trouble is, the file extention isn't generally shown in a directory viewer. There are various ways round this but, IMHO, it's often easiest to right-click over the file icon, select Properties, and then read off what it says alongside 'Type of file:'
Don't worry if this doesn't do it for you. If you can't work out the specific filetype/extension from that, we (or other) may be able to suggest a 'package' of various converters which you can install into WMP or Cyberlink. Then, hopefully, that might include the one you need to play this particular file. See how you get on.
Thanyou all for your support but at the end of the day i downloaded some codeks for wmp but found that the quality of footage was noy viable for further use.Thanks once again you are a very helpfull forum.Daiol
Why not try to install another software like realplayer , realoneplayer or media classic player,(IMO,wmp can play the 3GP well as U've downloads some package,but it seems do not work on ur PC),So, I suggest U to install the media classic player,that's a almighty player. And you can get it on the official site of Microsoft. Good luck! ------------------- Let the cat out of the bag.click here
