When a movie won't play because of unknown file extensions - how can i overcome this?

Thanks...... Neil.

You need to get the program to play that type of movie!

What is (are) the file extensions you need a player for?

I use JetAudio, download it free from:

click here

Scroll down to the bottom of the page and select JetAudio 6 Basic Download.

It plays everthing I have thrown at it. (audio and video)

you need the correct codecs. click here and install 2.41 full. At the point where it says mpeg2 select Elecard and Ligos.

With repsect - what both of you are saying may help - but since you don't know the filenames, they might not - what if it's a PowerPoint "movie" for example.

So - can you please give us the filename extension - or alternatively say whether one of the other suggestions worked.

DieSse, You're right again. We don't know the file extension. I have just looked at my JetAudio and there is no Powerpoint movie listed, so it won't play them. We will just have to wait for neil_raj to respond. Maybe he/she has to work on Saturday?
