    try installing the DivX codec and/or opening the file in Quicktime Player.

    Strange. You got me on that one. QuickTime Player should play it without a problem though.

    what do you use? what windows you have? i have XP. it was working fine last week. i went to my parents house for the weekend, came bakc, and it doesn work anymore. damn. anymore suggestions?? everytime i try to view a mpg video, it always opens up another window w/ a blank screen, then it stalls alittle (while its downloading), and then it pops up on the screen. the mpg doesnt even use a type of media player to view it. what do you think?
