    hi all,

    my apologies if this is not the section to post as all this is the first time i plunge into such forums. indeed i am badly in destress :( anyways, i'm having problems playing certain avi files. i've tried installing almost all codecs (ac3,klite,ffdshow,avicodec,etc.) & players (divx,mp9,10,11,jetbasic,aviplayer,etc.) that i can find with no luck. there's obviously something wrong (most probably me) that i can't figure out and i'm getting this error message. any light from you guys in the audio/video heavens would be much appreciated. many thanks!

    wOw!!! cool stuff man...i ran gspot, found the codec that caused my misery (tscc, as it turned out), downloaded, installed...and voila!!!

    (actually i installed vlc player that day which was able to read the files. problem was, i couldn't stop thinking why it wouldn't play after downloading half of the codecs & players i found! revenge was the word!!!

    now i am at peace.....<bow> with many thanks of course to you & this forum. ....much appreciated.
