ok, i'm gonna post this question once more...but here, cuz i don't think everyone reads the techy sections!

i STILL can't watch videos. i have media player, but we have tried EVERYTHING. quicktime, realplayer, etc. NONE of them work. if it's a file i have to open, i CAN'T SEE IT.

is it..this is just a thought, mind you, but is it at ALL possible that AVG is interfering? cuz now that i think about it, that's about the time it went kaflooey...when i dl'ed avg. is there a setting i've missed..have wrong..whatever? HELP!!!

thanx!

do you have any ad-ware or virus scan program? the reason i am asking is because they may block it. if the link is from the Internet usually they will tell you what program it plays on.

i believe i mentioned that i have avg anti-virus, and that it was around the time i dl'ed the avg that the trouble started with media player.

and, yes, they DO tell me what program to use...or, they'll give a choice, just check the box. as i stated, it doesn't matter WHAT i use...none of them work.

if it is the avg blocking media player, what do i do to UNBLOCK it?

thanx!

Hi nmdamgud

Its not likely your AVG blocking anything or you would be getting an alert of some kind. What is the extension of the file you are trying to play?

Its more likely you don't have the proper codec installed. Try downloading Gspot Codec Information Appliance. This little program will tell you if the file is corrupted or which codecs you need to play it and which codecs you already have. Be careful downloading codecs cause they are rife with malware if you get them from the wrong place. If you find you need some further codecs then post back with the results from Gspot and we'll help you find some good ones that are safe to download.

If this is a link that you click to get the video your firewall may be blocking it. Check the permissions in your firewall. Go into the options or preferences of your media players and find the area about firewalls and set it up in there. Alternatively you can right click the link, click save as and save to your hard drive and play it from there.
