Very likely you are missing some codecs. You can download a little appy called GSpot and open the files with it to find what codecs you need and whether they are loaded or not.

ok here are the results


I dont think its the it says in the File part in the stat

" this is an invalid AVI file due to corruption of the data in the header. THis is a serious problem, and this files is not likely to playable

Details: while processing chunck /Riff:AVI, found bad length value 182652778 at file offset 0x00002804"

and when i Rendered it It said " Rendering failed " and " Direct show was unable to render the file. Following is the error it reported 0x80040216: VFW_E_NOT_FOUND - An object name was not found.





hope the informations usefull So i guess the question is How do i fix the header so it could play correctly and all those numbers and whatever I don't know what that all is

thanks for helping me
