Problem playing Video on PC

  Jo77 10:00 30 Nov 2007


I have downloaded .avi files from the net (Bit Torrent). When I play these files on Windows Media Player I only get the audio (just the media player screen saver appears).

Had no problems with my old laptop...this is a new laptop has Vista (not sure if thats the issue).

Any advice?

Sounds like you don't have the correct codec installed. Install the K-lite codec pack click here that should fix the problem.

I dont think it is checked by default
