I have been sent some small vids (have them saved on a USB tick that I dont have with me) some of them play straight away on windows media player, or VLC media player or with QuickTime player, but others bring up a window on the media player that says "winodws does not recognize this file extension......" the vid files end in avi.001 avi.001 etc., my question is: Why cant I play these files on the windows media player, and what can I do to convert them to make them play?? thanks.

hmmm, I guess cause that is the first part out of many... I always use windows media player classic to play such file, and it worked! Or maybe you can find the rest of the file (ex: avi.002, avi.003) and combine them with application, such hjsplit or so on. It should become .avi (only) and then it can be played easily...
Hi, I have made succesfully a "joined2 file vid. from the HJsplit programme, this seems to work fine with files prefixed with avi.001 etc., HOWEVER I have come across files with a prefix called avi.001zip and the HJsplit will join these type of files but them puts them in a zipped folder that I cant get to open, it says on the "properties" that there is the amount of the size of the file i.e. 180mb in the file but I cant get this zipped file to open, any suggestions how I can join avi.001zip prefixed files to make them play as a normal vid. file (without zipped folder thus) thanks, PCDIMWIT
This doesnt work, if you remane the file it wont play at all, the media player still says that "this file is not supported or recognized" I dont think just removing a prefix that obviously has some meaning for the way the files are actually being documented or stored "inside" the zip file wont be altered by simply removing the zip designation on the file name, that is like simply putting a label for peaches on a tin of beans and expecting there to be peaches when you open the tin of beans. Hmmmmm!!!! I'm not such a PCDIMWIT that I cant see THAT!!!!
