i'm trying to play an .avi file on the windows xp media player. i've got sound but no picture. the player tries to connect to the microsoft server to download a codec but it keeps coming up with an error.

can't the windows xp media player play .avi files??

It is trying to download a codec which microsoft does not offer for download (usually some divX codec or something in that vein).

I would try installing divX and see if that fixes the problem.

the problem is the media player isn't playing .avi files, something to do with the codec (or lack of one) and i don't know where, or which codec to get.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
