    I downloaded a .avi file, which took hours on my slow speed. but it wont open with anything. quicktime says it cannot find the specified file. wmp says it cannot play this type of file, i downloaded some DivX players, but they say they cant play it. does anyone know whats wrong?

    edit: if you can help i will pay creds.

    I would try realplayer which has most plugins. realplayer has a nice free version if it doesnt work then your out of luck because I dont think anything else will work.

    It has nothing to do witha a media player. It has to do with the codec. Look on google for klite codec pack. It has every codec you could need. (It's okay mods, Klite is legal)
