    if it's an xvid, it will have a .avi extension, open that with vlc or niceplayer

    if it's a dvd, it will be a video_ts folder, drag that into vlc, dvd player, or niceplayer, it might be in iso or rar form which means it needs to be extracted first

    perhaps it has more than one audio track, see if you can switch.

    i have a couple of videos that won't have audio in niceplayer, but have it in vlc
