Okay i have fully downloaded the Houston and Earls Court Videos..but my Media player wont play them. It says this:
Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.
Nor will Real Player, Quicktime, PowerDVD. Does anybody know what the problem is? The audio downloads work fine, but the video ones just dont work. Oh and ive looked at the Bittorent Information, it doesnt have anything about this. :S

check what file extension it is. If it is a DVD file or such, then a special codec may be needed. Unless you have a DVD-ROM drive.

If the file is .wmv or .avi or .mpg or such, you really shouldn't be having a problem i guess

My Windows media player would only play the sound. I had to view it on my Roxio DVD player then I burned it on a DVD to view on the TV. I've only gotten the first mpg file done so far because it takes so long to burn.

Yeah i have the same thing, it only plays sound..Great, so i have to pay for Roxio, burn it, and view it that way? :( Is there another solution?
