    I have Downloaded quite a few "HDTV LOL" files but I am unable to play to them. The only codec pack I have is "K-lite Mega Codec Pack". I have been trying with other codecs but have so far been unsuccesfull.
    What do I need to watch the videos?
    Thank you

    I hope this is the right forum for this issue.

    Usually you only need to the divx/xvid codecs. I never needed to download those mega packs.

    Try VLC player if all else fails.

    Run Gspot Codec Appliance on the files to see which codecs are used in your file. If it tells you there are zero compatible codecs installed, then go download the one it names for you.

    Can't be said enough... VLC. Even included on the disc for this months' Maximum PC, Dream Machine 11 edition.
