error downloading Codec in Media Player

  Tecno Dan 21:44 24 Apr 2003


I have some AVI clips that I want to play, but when i try and play them media player says it trys to connect and then comes up with an error when downloading the Codecs.

Is it possible to download these manually?

Any advise welcome

sorry, I forgot to mention that I have upgraded to Verson 9, and still no joy.

avi clips usually require a divX here or type avi/divX codec into is normal to have to manually install them.

or avi could be in Xvid format again do a search find your codex and install them one by one - when your avi file plays stop installing! Some don't rate angelpotion but it works for me

Go here click here
and under downloads, download and install the nimo video and Audio codec. Not sure if it works with media player 9, but it seems to work with real player.
