    How can I play files with the .mpg extention on them.

    Everytime I open one, it connects to the net to look for a codec but I always get the message "error downloading codec"

    Is there a way it can play these files or is there some other application I can use?

    I do have a firewall active but I though I allowed access from the media player out.

    I checked it. It has access out but still doesn't work. Do I have to shut the firewall down completely or should I just look somewhere else to download the codecs like that url you listed.

    Cool, thanks.

    I shut down the firewall completely but same thing. Microsoft has a codecs site so I'm checking that now.
