I have a video (AVI) file that run’s on my desk top with widow’s media 10.
When I try to run the same file on my laptop the window’s media player 10 says looking for codec and reports back an error. The player then runs, but only audio. Both computers are using XP. Any idea why the lap top will not run the video.

Hi Ronnie

What is probably happening is that on your cp, when you went to play the file, Media Player 10 downloaded and installed the video codec that was needed to play both the audio and video portions of the file. You laptop is missing that codec and is only playing the audio portion, it is had to say what exact codec is missing.....usually with avi it is probably a divx codec :tazz:
