Hi all,

I recently got a .mpeg movie and watched it on my home Windows 2000 computer. It works great. I believe I was using maybe windows media 7 or 8. When I went to move that file to my laptop with XP and media player 9, it says that it doesn't support the file. But the file is in .mpeg format. Is this a codec problem? If so, how do I find out which codecs I have installed on my 2000 machine so I can get the movie to work on my XP?

thx
Josh

My codecs were basically the same, so I checked the properties of the Windows media players, and I found out that in 2000, I had this Elecard MPEG2 properities on it, so I went to Elecard's website, www.elecard.com and downloaded the decoder. It has this demultiplexer in and I believe that's what fixed it for me in XP.

thx
Josh
