Can you give us some information about what file types you are trying to play? What error messages do you get when the files dont play in vlc or media player?

Will Media Player Play them, its a MS Program that should be on the Laptop

Site says 'VLC Player is NOT recommeneded' you need the k-lite codec pack and Media Player Classic. Go back to the aha home page and in the left column click on 'How to play the video'

lotvic these are only avis xvid and x264 video files why the site is promoting the non use of vlc is beyond my understanding it plays anything without the need for codecs ive just tried 2 sample files from here works fine in vlc

mart7, yes I thought same, but that's what the site says. I think I'll leave it there as they look like pirated vids on that site and FE will come down hard if they are and help is given. (against forum rules to assist with pirated stuff)

Yeah true lotvic
