    Hi all good people


    I have a Series I'm watching on my computer,

    the first 20 was .avi files, but then there came some

    MPEG-4 files. My VLC won't play them with sound so I

    tried with Nero ShowTime, it sometimes play with sound, but not always.

    So from time to time I have to watch the video on VLC, while I'm listening from Nero..

    Its just shifting whatever or not it's working on either programs.

    I'm thinking I might need another program to play them, but I'm not sure.

    Any of you who can tell my what the problem is, then I would appreciate the help :)


    Best Regard LosLeo

    Open the files with gSpot or MediaInfo and see which codecs are used in the files. Then ensure you have the proper codecs installed.

    Video, AVC and Audio, AAC
    would you not agree they already goes with VLC?

    You know, i just think some of the files a damaged..
    It can't be true that it shifts codecs so often I guess
    (without knowing)
    I just downloaded the needed codecs and it still don't work

    but thank you for the help mate
