    I have avi videos I got off of bittorrent but when I try to play them I get the error message: Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file. I also have the program that shows you what codec you're missing and that also brings up a message saying that it doesn't recognize the file. I'm out of ideas because out of the 20 or so episodes only 3 work and the rest are codec'd.

    It was long time ago, probably 3-4 years ago but I used Cucusoft AVI to VCD DVD MPEG Creator Pro when I tried to convert avi file. I had no problemo at all, just followed the directions.
