I have a desktop Microsoft Windows XP, Media Center Edition, Version 2002, Service Pack 3. When I send a video from my Evo 4G, I can't play it on my desktop.

I've looked online and read that I need to install codecs or update to Windows 7 but I'm afraid to download anything because I'm a novice.

I really tried to figure this out myself but I can't on my own so I'd appreciate it if anyone can give me any suggestions. Thank you very much, EileenNOLA

You could try this one, It is what I use, VLC media player.

Edited to fix link - Roger

This player should play most any video you will run into.

Good Luck

THANK YOU!! The first link that you gave me was blocked by Malwarebytes Anti-Malware but the second link worked like a charm.

I really appreciate your helping me. You solved my problem 100%.

Have a great weekend! -eileenNOLA

I fixed the link. However that is for future users.

Thanks For letting me know that it solved the problem. I use it for all my video and mp3's.
