avi file plays on laptop but not desktop?

  dark-horse 07:22 27 Apr 2006

I have two computers, a laptop with (P4 3.4GHz with radeon 9600) and a desktop (dual Xeon 3.6Ghz with radeon 9250). Some of the .avi files that play on my laptop do not play on the pc. Both graphics cards are 128mb. Any suggestions??

Have a go with JetAudio (free). Download from

Scroll down to the bottom and select Basic download.

I use it quite a lot. Plays anything I've thrown at it (audio and video).

Many thanks for the replies. I have loaded as many codecs now as I can download and still no joy.

I have just played an avi file using jetaudio no problem.

Give it a try, it is free.
