View Full Version : Changing Name Of Movies

07-13-2003, 06:17 PM
I downloaded a movie. once downloaded, I changed the name. for instance, the name of the movie was 'Movie [DivX].avi' and I changed to 'Movie.avi'.

then tried to play the movie. But somehow i cannot play the movie. The Windows player says there is a general error.

But I can play the movie in DivX Player.

So I am thinking: does changing the name of the movie affects anything else.

How can i play it with Windows M player

I cant understand why you wouldnt be able to play a movie just because you renamed it i rename movies all the time ie taking out the centropy ts svcd etc etc and never had a problem :blink:Also if its divx then you will need the divx codecs or just use divx player or bsplayer both of which are pretty good

bs player for divx avi's
it's included in the k-lite codec pack

OK! I installed KLite codec pack and opened the movie with bs player. but got the following error:

'unknown file format (DIV4)'

Any ideas what i am missing (as I said I can play the movie with DivX player).
