Hey I have a '.webm' file that is a video, it works on my other computer in vlc, but when I try to play it on vlc on this computer I get an error, I downloaded codec for windows media player still wont play.

 

File reading failed:

VLC could not open the file "E:\Files\Video\Ergo Proxy\Screencast from 08-04-2013 01:34:13 AM.webm". (Bad file descriptor)

Your input can't be opened:

VLC is unable to open the MRL 'file:///E:/Files/Video/Ergo%20Proxy/Screencast%20from%2008-04-2013%2001%3A34%3A13%20AM.webm'. Check the log for details.

 

then when I try to rename it, it doesn't work either windows gives me error,

"The file name you specified is not valid or too long."

 

properties > security > "The requested security information is either unavailable or can't be displayed."

Google on .webm extension

 

These container audio/video formats are a little tricky (IMO) in that normal codecs may not open them.  I have a Hauppauge video card that results in .ts files, which may or may not be read by other software that is used to read video/audio files.

 

The simple solution that I see is either install the appropriate plugin or install the webm program, even though it appears that VLC should have native support for these files.

 

Of course...the other possibility is that the file is damaged, preventing normal reading/opening.
