Not the best place to look for help on playing copyrighted films mate!

However you just need a codec go to click here and also make sure you get an xvid codec as well.

It may need Quicktime loading or Mpeg

doenload Div X and you should have no trouble.

Yeah, Download DivX and XviD and that should be fine.

Try this - click here

Download and install avicodec and it'll tell you what codec was used to compress the movie and hence what you will need to view the illegal pirated copy of film that's probably extremely dodgy quality and not what you actually wanted in the first place. :-)
