    Sounds like you have a file association problem. Try setting the file association.

    Go to start, settings, folder options, file types and set the file association for this type of video.

    If Ricks idea doesnt work, you may need to un-install and re-install whatever you are trying to view it with.

    Welcome to TSG. :)

    hey Rick :)

    It could also be the file is corrupt. I have a program that I send video through email with. It is an .exe file and it sends the file drivers needed to play the video.

    If it is a file like the one I mentioned above you will have to have them resend the file.

    No other program will open it or play it.
