    Hi there

    I have this .mpeg file that I downloaded from the internet. Qiocktime won't open it at all the Errormessage sais :...because it's not a file that Quicktime understands.
    I tryed opening it with VLC but then all I get is sound.

    Does anybody know what I'm doing wrong??

    sounds to me like u have a codec problem. try opening the file in GSpot to find out which codec u need. you can get it here http://www.headbands.com/gspot/
