Thanks for the reply Nigglesnush85.
I had the whole free Divx package installed, ie viewer, codec pack etc. I uninstalled it all this morning along with the All-in-one 188.8.131.52 codec pack thinking that if something didn't work it would be easy enough to reinstall it. After the uninstallation I checked my video files to find that two of them (both originally Divx files) had the blank envelope unknown file type thingy while all the rest had retained the VLC traffic cone emblem. When I tried to play them I got the unknown file message and told PC to open with VLC and they played fine so I renamed them with .avi instead of .divx and now they have the traffic cone emblem as well and play just fine on the VLC player.
