    I'm having trouble playing avi files on my computer. When I try to play them in media player it trys to download the codecs but says it can't install them. I have done what it tells me to do in help. I've downloaded Divx which doesn't even start up. I have also tried to find the new version of media player (7.1 for windows 98). But I can't find it in english. :( I feel like I have tried everything. I have even tried somethings that were suggested on this board but nothing is working. I am getting really frustrated. I'm just hoping that someone can help me. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
    Thanks, Jessie

    Thanks you guys. I'll try those out as soon as a get a chance. Where did you find the 7.1 media player? I could only find it in every other language besides english. As I understand it (and this could be wrong) but isn't version 7.1 the newest for windows 98?
