My first suggestion would be to download VLC player and use that to try and play the video. fzabkar a c 262 G Storage November 29, 2012 2:19:38 AM +1 to j2j663 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. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
