hi there,im fairly new to this game, so bear with me..ive downloaded movies and just descovered that i have to get codecs, i have a few of these now, divX, WM9 codecs, but still some movies come up with 'unsupported codec' when i try to play them in windows media player. im running XP Pro and have media player set to automatically select the right codec. do i need to find more? if so, where?! thanks ;|

have you got the Xvid, DivX codecs? if you havent download DivX from DivX.com and it should work.
