what type of video file is it?

Iv never heard of a TM video?

dont laugh! its a file of Jeremy Kyle with his new baby, I think the TM may have been taken over from a program on my PC that tries to open it by default I changed it to open with windows media player and thats the error message I got.

SO if i get this straight in my head the video file extension is TM well never heard of that type,

What program tries to open it by default?

I think it was something in Nero, I have changed it now to a wma file

  wolfie3000 17:10 05 Aug 06

ok but a wma file is an audio file so does it work like that?

  eljanno 17:13 05 Aug 06

no it wont play give the error about codecs. I have just been looking where I got the file from but I cannot find the site now

Well first thing is to change it from a wma as this is an audio file, sometimes windows media player will look for the right codecs online.

failing that download this as it has many codecs and might have the one you want.
