I just downloaded an anime episode, and this is not the first time it's happened, but I really want to watch this. How do I install codecs, and furthormore, how do I know which codecs to install. I did a little bit of searching and found a codec packet, but for some reason it's not installing right. =/

What are you trying to view the file with and what type of file is it you want to play, media players worth getting are media player classic or winamp. I watch alot of movies and tv eps and i think i have a media player for pretty much any file so i should be able to point you in the right direction. The K-lite codec pack is also worth trying i dont use it myself because i have every media player software and its dog but it will fix most things.

It appears to be an .avi I'm trying to run it in windows media player. It's Gundam wing- Endless Waltz that I'm trying to watch.
