    Hey everyone, I am experiencing a problem where I have downloaded a series of video's from Kazaa that are in MPG and AVI format. The files are as large as 220MB. When Windows Media Player brings up the file it shows it to be like 30 secs versus 30 min and the "status" bar moves quickly playing the first 30 secs and continues to play the 30 mins of sound but the video then reaches the end of the status bar and only seems to refresh every few mins. If I click on different points of the status bar it plays different pieces of the mpg but never the whole thing?
    Anyone ever encountered this problem?

    You said you have the Nimo codec pack installed but heres the link for other ppl

    as for your problem, your avi files are probably incomplete, being you didn't download the whole thing, or perhaps the person you were downloading off of didn't have the whole file just yet.
    I think there is a link on the main page to a program that will rebuild the index of the avi file (apparently the index is put at the end of an avi file)
    check it out, it might help
