Hi, guys, I have just been looking at my home mad video clips, and there are a couple that will not play now! I am certain they played when I first video'd them, I have tried changing the media to no avail, I have took a snippet of the on screen information, and seeked web help but its all beyond my comprehension, So I wonder if you guys can help me cheers

Windows media player isn't particularly flexible in video format support. You obviously have VLC installed as the file has it's icon so try playing them in that instead.

something about codec thats all

Download MediaInfo and open the clip. Select View and then Treeview, choose export and text. Open the resulting file in notepad. Export the text to the clipboard and paste it into a post.
