That is what was suprising me... It tries to connect to the codec server and fails.. I have tried changing the connetion props of wmp but still does not connect right.. If you know of a way to make it work I would be thankful..

Power dvd... I thought that it only plays the acual dvd discs.. If it plays avi video format, that is a new one on me.

MPEG-3 videos?
You mean DivX .AVI files with embedded MP3 Audio?
(MP3 standing for MPEG Layer-3)
http://www.mpeg3.com/
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=MPEG-3

What is your Windows OS and what version of Windows Media Player are you using?

All you probably need is the Fraunhofer MP3 Codec.


Or did you actually mean MPEG-3 video?
http://wombat.doc.ic.ac.uk/foldoc/foldoc.cgi?MPEG-3

This video format is very rare, and abandoned, if I'm not mistaken.
Usually, these days it will be MPEG-2 (.mp2) or MPEG-4

Anyway, try some of these places for the relevant codec

I'm still not sure what "that" is ?!
What's the file extension? .avi or .mpg / .mpeg or other?

btw, install WMP9 at your own risk.
It tends to break support for other players/software to play formats such as WMA, WMV, ASF, and other proprietry Microsoft formats, mainly because the other players aren't yet coded to be compatible with WMv9 codecs.

I'm also a moderator on the winamp.com forums, so I can tell you a thing or two about that!
