Ive been watching videos via windows media player that have the .avi extension, but for some reason there is one file in particular that I cannot play. I though it was a codec issue because it says that the issue is codec related, but how can that be if I am able to play other videos that use the same file extension.
I even downloaded a codec for the .avi file extension just incase but the problem is still present.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Does the file play in any other media players? VLC is a good one to use as it plays most file types without the need for codecs and it is free.
May be a corrupted file?
be careful with codecs that is how virus and malware sneak into your system! I concur with K13RON. Use VLC and never need to worry about codecs again.
