Windows Media Player Video Problem.

By Ryu98 ·
Hi i'm having problems playing an avi video on WMP v 7.01. The problem is that first when i try to play the video it will start by trying to look for some codec.. then i will get a popup message "video not available, cannot find vids:div4 decompressor. Then after that the popup message goes away and i can hear the sound. I check the properties of the video an it said:
Audio format: MPEG Layer-3,15kBit/s, 11,025 Hz, Mono
Video format: Unknown format

I play the video on another machine with the same Media player and it works fine. I even reinstall the Media play and still doesn't work.. i check the system properties on both machines and they look alike.. Another thing i check the knowledge base of Microsoft and i don't seem to find a similiar prob like this..

So What can i do next?

Hi if you go into control panel then multimedia then devices tab look under Video Compression Codecs to see if you have the same as the working machine or at least the one the video is looking for.

Hope this helps

You need to install the appropiate codecs.
If you are connected to the internet it should find it automatically.
try 1:
www.microsoft.com/codecs

2: it's a codecs of divx (a new compression method)
head to www.divx.com , the current versionis 4.1
(most likely result)

regards,

Leopold
