Hello there,
If you dont mind my asking, what video is it?...well you dont have to tell me but is it from a trusted source?

If its not from a trusted source I suggest you dispose of the movie file immeadiately. Movies and pictures from google, yahoo, msn etc. can contain malicious code which downloads in the background while you are running the movie. Before long you will be posting Hijack this logs which is not an enviable position to be in if your close with your computer.

What format is the movie in at present?
Go to control panel and select folder options
select file types and look to find the current extension of the file u need to edit.
If it is there click it and look further down the screen to find "opens with". If you can, click "change" and change the current application to the application you want to use, such as Premier.
Save the setting (click ok)
Go to the file and click to see if it will open in your prefferred program.
Report back

Thanks
Darren De Wilde

The video maybe a proprietry format. It may also have copyright software incorporated into it.

Hi there,

Is it in the .avi format? I am asking because I visited the Google Video site and you can watch the NBA games in Macromedia Flash, but I was just curious to which format,( if not .flv ) it actually is upon Download. If it is in .avi format, and you have Nero, it will convert to your desired format.

I am just guessing, but are you by any chance downloading the Jan. 22 meeting between the Lakers-Raptors?
I downloaded this game just for pure historical reference, 81 is a big number. My appologies if I am being nosey, and I will understand if you do not answer, but I do recommend this particular game, it is a rare feat.


Hope this helps,

nos :thumbsup:

******************************

I replied a few minutes late, but I am still curious if the actual download is in .flv, or another format. Just curious, as usuall.

Thanks!

When I'm right, I'm right....
And when I'm wrong, I could have been right....
So I'm still right, cause I could have been wrong.
