View Full Version : I need video help

I've downloaded a torrent of Sunday's game, but can't get the thing to play. I keep getting a message that I need a Direct show compatible Mpeg2 converter. I downloaded DIvx, but it won't open the file. Any ideas?

Try googling the error message. Like "Direct show compatible Mpeg2 converter" I usually find answers to computer problems that way. Same thing if you ever get zinged by a virus or spyware app just google its name and the cure is almost always there.

Here you go there are a number of Codecs that should help you.

Download VLC from videolan.org - It'll play anything without any additional software.

Thanks Chawknz, VLC did the trick.

I wish I knew how I could rip DVD video clips into individual files to create my own highlight reel.
