Stu it proving to be a tough nut to crack this, i've tried that player your recommended Direct core media player but i'm still not getting any luck, keep getting this message:
> TCMP's Core can not render the file : C:\Documents and Settings\Ian Holmes\My Documents\Azureus Downloads\the name of the file i downloaded.avi > Some of the streams in this movie are in an unsupported format.
No matter what i do it won't do anything, i even downloaded a program that checks where the codec is coming from then tries to resolve it but to no avail. When i open the codec for it, rather than it opening up as like a .exe file though it opens up as zip file, is there some sort of program that helps to convert this to a program then try opening it like that? Or is it now something that probably can't be resolved?
