Why is my movie from a flash drive not playing

I downloaded the movie onto my desktop from the flash drive and when I try to play it there is no sound and the screen is black but it does show that the movie is playing at the bottom of the window.

  1. Can you tell us what the movie file type is and what program you are trying to use to play it.

    My first suggestion would be to download VLC player and use that to try and play the video.

    Most probably the movie requires audio and/or video codecs that are not installed on your machine. VLC will tell you which codecs are used.
