Hi all, I recently obtained a file with a .mpg extension. I realize extensions mean nothing, so how can I find the real encoding of the file? My problem lies in that I cannot view this file on most Windows machines using the Windows Media Player. The one exception is my personal machine where I have WinDVD installed. Seems a codec has been installed that does the trick. Unfortunately, the codec doesn't describe the file format, so I'm no better off. Here's the funny bit. I can use ImageMagick on Linux to convert this file (whatever it may be) to MPEG. Once converted, WMP allows me to view the video and audio fine. That could be the solution, but all Image Magick tells me is "MPEG-2 PES packet". Not very descriptive. So, rather than convert this nice, high quality video file just to view it, is there an easier way to find the appropriate codec and install it? Thanks in advance.
