Hello,

I have some video files (I believe .avi?) that can't be read by vid readers. I tried doing updates and such but the vid readers still get to some files that they can't read.

I appreciate any suggestions.

Try this FREE player VLC media player

http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

VLC - the cross-platform media player and streaming server
VLC media player is a highly portable multimedia player for various audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols. It can also be used as a server to stream in unicast or multicast in IPv4 or IPv6 on a high-bandwidth network

NOTE

Windows 95/98 ME users: Please note that these versions of Windows are not officially supported. No VideoLAN developer uses any of these systems, which makes them hard to support. VLC should mostly work with them, but some incompatibilities might appear. You might need to download

The two MSLU files need to be put in the C:\Windows\System\ folder.

If you want to pay the file in the windows mediaplayer, you can use Gspot (http://www.headbands.../v26x/index.htm) to find out what CODEC is missing.
Google for that CODEC and install it.
