    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    Coodecs are like a bunch of little mini-programs that playback software uses to work out how to play a particular type of movie or audio file. For instance, somewhere you have an mp3 codec installed that tells winamp, media player, and all the rest how to get from that mp3 to something you can listen to.

    The error your getting is just your player telling you "Oi, i can see the file, but i dont know how to use it!". So, tell it - get the codec installed.

    yep, the kl pack did the trick
    always had all the audio codec support i needed with dbpoweramp,
    so this was some new territory for me

    thanks

    unlike mpeg 1 and 2 (which are standards) .avi files can require so many different types of codecs, but by far the most widely used are Divx and Xvid (both based on mpeg 4), so these codecs are essential for watching downloaded movies from P2P clients.
