OK, so when I finish my video files downloads, I cannot open them.
It either says that the file cannot be opened or it plays 2-3 secs of the movie and then starts again....over and over again and i cannot just play it from a further point.
BS players says that the file cannot be opened. Quicktime player says that the format is incorrect, as does WMP. What should I do ? I Just reinstalled the latest k-lite codec pack and it's the same thing.
I'm downloading those files with BitComet.
Windows xp sp2

Try powering down your router for about thirty seconds, turning it back on, rebooting your computer, and downloading your files again. It sounds like you're dropping packets; not enough for the system to see the file as corrupted, but enough to screw up playback.

Also, consider the possibility that your source has a damaged copy to begin with, and maybe it's time to find a new one.
