Do it by trial and error, Find out what codecs you need for that video file... then go D/L them.

You can get a small freeware application called Gspot and use it to open your video and audio files. It will tell you exactly what you need to play almost any file. One of the best pieces of software I've found.

You can get divx at http://www.divx.com/. You can get the free version (ad supported) and then zap the ads with AdAware.

There is another free program for seeing what codecs a media file needs called "VideoInspector" and has the added utility of being to automatically download that codec based on an online database! Check it out at:

VideoInspector
