I recently downloaded an avi movie. I tried to open it with DivX Player, and it said there was a "Tag 85" error and that I needed to install a codec in order to play the sound. I looked it up and saw that i needed to get the MPEG Layer-3 Audio Decoder. I got that and installed it, but when I try to open the file, it still said the exact same thing. Could I be doing something wrong? I have Windows NT, btw, so could that be the problem?

Did you mean the newest version of the player or the newest codecs? I just checked, and I have the newest version. I reinstalled it just to see if that would make any difference, but it didn't

Both.
Ok since i can speak german TAG means DAY 85? That error dosnt make anysince... it has to be something else.... Get rid of the player and the codecs and try again. Download the player new from www.download.com and the codec from the DIVX website.

Before u do please deinstall every setup from the player you got now. That's important.

Regards,
Claudio

I like GSpot codec information appliance. Nice little program to check any kind of media file when you have a problem.

● Establishes what video codecs (audio and video) are required to play an AVI file.
● Determines whether these codecs are installed on your system.
● Isolates problems associated with these codecs.
● Simple operation - Basic use: "File > Open", then read results
● Identifies download induced problems (truncated files, "cooked" files, etc.)
● Shows framerate, duration, aspect ratio, bitrates, AVI structure info, and more.
● Displays and allows editing of RIFF info (title, etc); displays "hidden" ASCII info.
● Drag and Drop and "Send To" support, multi-file (batch) processing support
● Copy/Paste or text export GSpot information - format is user configurable.
● Built-in database of 350 video and 150 audio codec types
● Advanced UI including "dual-mode" and hyperlinked "persistent" tool tips
● Full support for OGG media files as well as AVI stream formats
● Identification (only) of non-AVI files (.mpg, .mov, .qt, .rm, .swf, .wmv, .asf, etc.)
● Supports VFW, ACM, DirectShow and DMO codec types (audio and video)
● Win95/98/ME/NT/2K/XP
● No Install (optional), No spyware, No advertising, No registration
● Free

I just downloaded that GSpot program and opened the file. It said I have three codecs that can play the video stream and three codecs that can play the audio stream. I clicked the render button in the bottom left and it said this: "DirectShow was unable to render the file. Following is the error it reported: 0x80040265: VFW_E_UNSUPPORTED_STREAM - Cannot play back the file. The format is not supported." The file is an avi, so it should be supported by the program. What could be wrong?

Did you try search for the error on google? Try that since i'm not a pro on those play back media things..... and before you might just try the idea of installing everything knew like i said. But getting rid of those setups first.

Good luck

Claudio

I searched for the error on google which is how I found out about the MPEG Layer-3 Audio Decoder that I needed. I tried uninstalling everything, redownloading the setup files, then reinstalling it, but that didn't make any difference.
