Windows Media Player doesn't play *.avi file
« on: August 27, 2010, 07:46:22 PM »
My WMP version is 12.0.7600.16415 and my OS is Windows 7. WMP doesn't play .avi file.

Any suggestions!

Try MPlayer or VLC. If they don't play it, the file may be corrupt.

You need K-Lite Codecs....http://filehippo.com/download_klite_codec_pack/   anyway you can watch movies with MediaPlayerClassic(MPC)

VLC plays it fine but not WMP.
