Mpeg4 codec problems

  DMAN 08:48 02 Apr 2003

Hi I hope someone with my problem.

I have some file so my computer that are avi. extensions which is mpeg4 codec. Unfortunately I can't get them to play on media player or any other type of player. I'm using WinXP and I've tried different programs such as Winamp, Global Divx player and Allplayer, but none seem to show any pictures just sound.

some of the players seem to support this codec but they still don't play. I've tried downloading from net into media player but it's says there is an error in downloadin the codec. I've run out of ideas. Can someone help me? It would be much appreciated.

how does xvid work? I have it on my computer and there is some FourCC Changer which seems to convert stuff but I still can't watch the files. I'm very confused about all this. Am I doing something wrong?
