Can't Play You Tube Downloaded Videos

  mcheathen 18:05 14 Aug 2010

I downloaded a few You tube videos and they played onm my PC, without any problem. I copied them onto my memory stick took them to my friend to show him. The would not play. In fact they were copied onto his PC as orphan files. My friend does not have internet access and I am wondering if his Windows media player requires a special plugin.

Download and save Media player classic to your desktop and transfer the zip file to flash drive. Install on your friends PC. It plays anything thrown at it.
