Realplayer - Codec Required

  SAH 18:56 01 Mar 2008


I'm trying to play an AVI file using Realplayer, but it says that it needs to download new software to play the clip which it tries to do unsuccessfully .It then says there is no software available to play the clip and in the detail part of the report it says ICM.SP44 I assume this is the codec required, bit is there anywhere I can obtain this codec without downloading a virus!?

Thanks for the help everyone, I've now managed to find the codec I needed ICM.SP44 and I can watch the videos OK now! :-)
