    I was tryiny to download movie on limewire & when I try to preview it. It says ( cannot render files) It happens on most of newer movies. Am I missing some codecs or what. I'm new at this & any help would be appreciated.

    If it's an AVI, drag it on to 'GSpot' and it will tell you the name of the codecs and whether they are installed on your PC.
    Media players like 'VLC' can play most formats.They contain there own codecs, independent of the system.

    This example needs XviD video and an AC3 Audio codec.

    you would not be able to preview the movie while is downloading(like you are able with an mp3). I don't know about AVI files, but it works with mpeg and wmv files. You go to the folder where LimeWire saves the incomplete files, locate the incomplete file and copy it to a different location and try to preview. It works with some files.
