hi can anyone help when my friend sends me email containg a video clip it arrives ok but when i down load it it changes to text and down loads as a word document i download it to my documents. iam on line with aol90vr because i have windows vista what can i do ??? please
go to the explorer window where the file is stored, right clik on it and select rename, left click on it and go to the end of the file name, for example .... johns video.doc or johns video.txt delete the .doc or .txt whatever it says [it may say neither] and add instead .avi or .mpeg or .wmv so your file name will now be johns video.avi etc if avi doesnt work try the .wmv or .mpeg instead.
Hi, right-click on the video icon in your My Documents folder and then choose rename from the drop-down menu. Just add ".avi" without the commas, to the name that is already there - don't forget the .(dot)
It should then run as a video in Windows Media Player.
