    HI ALL.
    THIS IS MY FIRST POST
    here is my problem.


    [bold]"Omen,The4.the.Awakening.dvdrip.xvid-saphire.avi"[bold]

    it took 3 days to download this file. now i cannot open it
    you understand the frustration.

    cannot find any info on this ext.
    Can you please help me to get a player that will play this file.
    i have used gspot and media code to get the codecs required but they have no info.

    XviD is the video codec, Saphire is the release group and avi is the container. All you should need to play it is XviD (or equiv). You could also use a standalone player such as mplayer, VLC, etc.

    I have tried vlc media player and divx player with no joy.

    "failed to open file. please check that it is a valid avi or mpeg4 file"

    any ideas .Please

    CORRECT TITLE OF FILE.


    "Omen,The4.the.Awakening.dvdrip.divx-saphire.avi"
    it should be divx and not xvid

    If GSpot doesn't recognise it as an avi, then it isn't.

    It is either
    a) incomplete (missing header)
    b) corrupt (corrupt header)
    c) fake
    d) wrong file extension, well plus the rest of the filename would be wrong to.

    Scene releases don't allow DivX. So I would be going with c. Probably there is no DVDRip's out or at least not one from Saphire. Have you checked?

    cannot get file to play

    used nero and turned it into an image file.
    no problem.

    if you are interested i will send you the original file .
    just tell me how to do that(enclose an attatchment)

    I really would like to know about this file.
    1)could you recommend a tutorial on hash checking
    2)how can you tell that a torrent is good
    do you go by the heath?
    any other meams of checking before you download that this is a full file.


    thks again in advance
    kevin
