    Hi wgivens:

    Welcome to Tech Support Guy.

    Windows Media Player will show .avi files. :)

    Thank you Judy!

    Now if I can find out what MIME type an AVI file is,
    I can add the 'helper' to Netscape Navigator.

    Thanks Jody!

    Now, can you help with .VIV files?

    I bought/installed the latest and greatest from vivo.com
    and still get shunted off to "...need to d/l files..." at their
    website. Unfortunately, there are NO files there!

    some files seem to run OK, but a "full movie" is the one
    that just WILL NOT PLAY!

    Hi wgivens:

    I am unsure what you mean. Did you download the VivoActive PowerPlayer? And what <b>specific</b> error message are you receiving?

    :)

    Hi Jody

    Yes. I dl/bought the latest& greatest Vivo power player and
    installed it.

    It doesn't REALLY give me an error message, just states
    that it needs an (unspecified) plugin/? and takes me off
    to vivo.net where it states that there is no files available.

    I wish I could tell youi more specifically WHAT it was looking
    for, but that isn't in the cards. :-(
