    There isn't just one xvid codec! there are many of them and some cause problems. Anyway, you shouldn't use winmedia to play xvid!

    thanks for reply.

    but which codec do you think i should get and which player i should use to play an xvid file.

    one last question that i have is about a movie file that have a name like coolmovie.dvl.avi and each time i try to play it media player gives error. i also tried realplayer and ati media player but non would play the file. do i need a codec and if i do which one should it be?

    thanks

    ok i am pretty embaressed to ask this.

    i looked for this codec by vite and all the time i land in a site called vidomi or something else. i already spend too much time and my patience has run out. is it possible that you can just give a link for this codec and give me the exact name of the file which i have to downlaod.?

    thanks
