Cant play the downloaded video file ( unknown format )?

Q: Cant play the downloaded video file ( unknown format )?

I have downloaded a .avi video file.
I cant play the video file using many of the media players ( The KMPlayer, K-lite codec , windows media , vlc )

The file extension is changed to .001 for the first file and .002 for the sencond file....etc instead of .avi as mention in the website.

Thank for your consideration.

Preferred Solution: Cant play the downloaded video file ( unknown format )?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Cant play the downloaded video file ( unknown format )?

The numbered extensions make it sound like one large avi file was split into smaller files for downloading purposes. You will need a file joiner utility program to combine them into a single file before you can play it. There are various free and non-free joiner programs that can be downloaded from the Internet. I have not used them often enough to offer any specific recommendations.

Hello,When I am trying to play a downloaded torrent movie, the windows media player is opening and then only the sound comes with a green square. No pictures appear in the square. Just a plain green square. Under properties for the file it says, "Video Clip".I updated the graphics drivers and also have the latest java updates. The funniest part is that in the same course of download there are other files which are playing perfectly. It's just a couple of them that are not playing.Request you to please let me know how to overcome this trouble.Regards.

Some videos made using an online system, screencasts, now downloaded will not show the video component when played on the computer.  Windows Media Player 12 had played them just fine when they were online, but now using Windows Media Player 12 with the same video downloaded, only the Media Player's visualizations show but not the recorded video portion.  Why or what can I do?
Windows Vista
Windows Media Player 12
Downloaded videos as MP4 (actually onto external portable hard disk).

A:downloaded video files not play the video portion (mp4)

Download CCCP Codec Pack. After install make sure you reset user settings. Reboot and you should be able to play MP4's using the Classic Media Player included in the Codec Pack. This codec pack will let you play just about any media file. Don't worry about the Russian Looking page. The site is legit.
Go to Start -> Programs -> Combined Community Codec Pack and open the Settings manager.
Press "Next" to get to the second page.
Under "Special Settings", check "Reset All Settings".
Press Apply.
Select Yes to the question, and follow through the Settings until Apply is hit again.

It's not that I get an error when I open the video, it's just that it doesn't run. Like I open it and the opening scene shows up but the video doesn't run. I can view the rest of the video only by grabbing the scroll bar with my mouse and just clicking it further along the line to progress the video. And even then it is just still images.

And yes I am 100% positive the video is not jsut a video of pics. This doesn't happen all the time, but only once in a while. and the vid is .avi

Here is my problem: I store all my video files on an external hard drive. I had some problems on my computer and had to have the hard drive wiped and all my programs and data reinstalled. When the computer came back from the shop, I tried to play some of the videos on my external hard drive, but all I could get was a message that said access was denied because I did not have the proper permissions. Apparently something got wiped and not put back. Does anyone know a way for me gain the permissions or codecs I apparently lost? Is that possible? Please advise.

I have noticed a number of flash videos on youtube that, when downloaded and played from cache, start and immediately stop.

I have also noticed that if you start the video at some points maybe 60 percent through, you can start and play part of the video. This strikes me as very odd. The video won't play but some parts of it will play.

An example is at


GSpot tells me it is an ordinary .flv file, not flash 4, flv4.

I tried getflv and flvmid, but they did not fix anything.

I am suspicious that this is a new antidownload measure, but I can't anything anywhere that says that.
Does anyone know what is going on here and how to work around it?

I'm trying to change some of the various sound effect with downloaded portal .wav files. So have worked while others have not. The only difference I have seen between the one that have worked and the ones that don't is that the working one show a bit rate in their properties. Is there anyone that knows how I can fix this? Thank you very much.

A:Downloaded .wav file will not play in sound effects

In case it's really the sampling rate what hinders the process, simply convert one of the non working wavs to the same rate of the working ones. Winamp does that quite easily via the Wav out-plugin

If the image files you're unable to open were obtained via download to a folder name that includes certain special characters (for example, the symbols seen in "【Pictures】") this creates a file path that, although acceptable to the operating system, is not recognized properly by IrfanView (or other apps), yielding the somewhat misleading "Can't Read File Header, Unknown file format" message (should really say "File Not Found"). Simple solution is to rename the download folder, or move the image files to another directory with a name that's recognized properly by IrfanView. Hope this helps some who are encountering this confusing error!

Hey all..
I just recently attached my HD, CDROM and DVDROM to my onboard ATA100 IDE ports.. I didn't have them attached in the first place because my Voodoo 5 5500 is a monster of a card and it goes over them so I needed to find some ribbon cables with smaller connecters..
Anyway, since I did that I haven't been able to use software (winamp, media player, real player, cd player, etc. ) to listen to my audio cds. I either get a no track/file message or file type unsupported message.
The tracks are listed as .cda which I would think normal...?
However, the only way I can play the cd is to just use the play button on my cdrom...

Any comments would be appreciated,

Hey Falcon,

First I would check all the ribbon cables, you may have one hooked up wrong. also I would check the audio cables from cd to sound card.

What version of windows are you using, why can't you use windows media player or other software ?? I would take care of the cable problem before I worry about the cd player. That may fix it

Okay. Long story short:All music kept on external harddrive, dropped harddrive, lost everything, got most data recovered, half the music plays fine, half of it doesn't.In Windows Media Player, the error message I get when I try to play some of the files: Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file.In iTunes, the file just doesn't appear in the library. I presume these files are corrupt or something?When I right-click each of the files that don't play and go to properties, the 'tpye of file' is 'MPEG Layer 3 Audio (.mp3)'.However, I have gotten the error message that they are in 'unknown file format'. (I can't remember where I got that message).But I don't understand how they can be 'unknown' when each file claims to be an mp3 file. Question:Is there anything at all I can do to get the music back to normal, and get it playing?Anything at all?Please?

A:'.mp3' files in 'unknown file format'

If the file extension is .mp3 then Properties would show it is MPEG Layer 3 type file. But when you play the file most of the media players determine the file type first by checking its content. That is when a corrupt file would give error Unknown type.

If the file data is corrupt then I am afraid there is no way to recover it.

I am running microsoft windows me, using kaspersky Anti Virus Personal Pro, and update it everynight, the problem I am having is after kaspersky Anti Virus has completed a scan I look at the report and sometimes not always it shows 1 or 2 files in system restore that are Gzip, they should be cab files?
by the side of the files it says unknown format, I have never installed Gzip or used it, but I did install winace and that seems to be when it started to happen.
isn't Gzip used in unix systems?
I have been Purging all the files in system restore and then making a new save point redoing a system scan and the unknown file formats are gone, but they come back, sometimes the next day or sometimes not untill a couple of weeks later,
I have done file search but no Gzip can be found at all, does anyone know what this could mean or had the same problem?

A:Gzip (unknown file format)

You're correct -- gzip is used extensively on Unix/Linux/Solaris and similar systems. It's another form of file compression and is reasonably efficient. Since I don't run WinME or even your anti-virus program, I can't help with the specifics of the messages you're receiving. However, a couple of things:

(1) gzip files are roughly equivalent to zip archives; they are not executable and should not represent a threat per se.

(2) I believe there are programs available for Windoze that understand the gzip format; you might consider getting one of these and seeing what's inside some of these files that keep appearing. Perhaps that would give you a clue about the origin of the files and why they keep re-appearing.

Hope this helps.

Hi, i found that Internet Download Manager can download online movies/videos from what ever point i start watching. My problem is, these files wherein downloading was started from some midpoint of the movie/video plays only audio and no video. The same file if downloaded from the beginning plays without any hassle. VLC 2.0.1 plays the part file with audio only and no video. Windows Media Player 11, GOM Player and PotPlayer does not play at all. In fact, if i try to open the part file from within the player, the last 3 players cannot even detect the said file. What's going on? Please help. [i must mention here that i know almost nothing about computers, kindly note that any help will have to be simplified and detailed, sorry for the added bother]. Thanks.

This isn't exactly programming, but came to me that this might be the best place to ask this question, and the filetype isn't unknown pre se, its just unknown how the data is stored, and unknown to Windows OS. Filetype is a .STO file, a setupfile of sorts.

I want to read the contents of a file (a proprietary filetype) outside of the native application. The data can be exported to HTML from within the app, and I'm thinking its mostly alpha-numeric values.

All I want to do deally is compare data values from one file against another file to review the differences.
Whn I do look at the exported HTML file, its in a horrible format, that doesn't really relate to the way the data is displayed in the App, thus making comparisons difficult.

I guess I figure that if I could read the data, I could reorder it somehow, maybe as an Excel document... for the purpose of comparison.

I have recently downloaded a supposed video file from a file sharing website. The video was split into 2 parts and appeared to be a RAR file. When it downloaded i ran it through a RAR decompresion application (RARzilla free) that i have used to open RAR files before but it would not recognise the video file as a RAR file and could not open it. When i looked at the file properties the file type says 'File' not RAR or any other familiar type.
The files in question seem to be proper files, they took time to download and are of a signifiacent size, so there is apparently content within them. I would just like to know how to open them and play the video i (at least thought) i was downloading.
What do i need to do or what software do i need to download to make this work.

Are you interested to get the permanent solution? Today I will tell about a codec. characters. Most search engines use a maximum of 160 chars for the description.

K-Lite Codec Pack 6.6.0 Full(the current version) works great for me for using Windows Media Player 11/12 to watch and listen to CD audio, DVD movies, on-line video clips, etc..

And it eliminates the need to buy programs, such as InterVideo WinDVD and Cyberlink PowerDVD and others.

I?m running Windows XP, and my default media player is Windows Media Player 11. After I downloaded a video clip (properties: audio format MPEG Layer-3) and played it, widows media player opened, and at the bottom it says ?acquiring codec? then ?codec acquired? but all I get is sound, no video.

However, after I downloaded Media Player Codec Pack, the video played back just fine.

There is a window that pops up stating the file can't be played because a network error occurred. The server might not be available. Verify that you are connected to the network and that your proxy settings are correct.

I don't know what this means. I have high speed DSL connection and I don't think I use proxy settings.

Sounds like the server from where this video is originating does not function correctly. I don't think there is much you can do on your end. Try it another day.

My father went to the Nantahala this past weekend on a church trip and they purchased the cd that has all of their pics on it as well as a slideshow (which is just all of the pics strung together with a song being played in the background) and we would like to email and post it to his facebook page. I have tried emailing it as an attachment but when you go back to play it, nothing happens. I have also tried downloading it to facebook but they said that they don't support exe. files to download in the video area.

We have the release form from the company to make prints of the pictures and we would like to be able to send the video to the other thirty ppl so we don't have to burn that many copies. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Basically I need to convert this exe. slideshow into whatever file I can so that I can email and upload it to the computer.

Thanks a million

A:Converting exe. file to some kind of video format

I'm not sure if this will work, but you can use winrar or 7zip....

1. Copy the .exe file to your hard disc
2. Right click it and select open with winrar or 7zip (whichever you are using).
3. Hopefully, this file will open now.
4. Now you can extract the files, wherever you want and can mail them too.

Hope this helps.

I kept my PC case clean, didn't try to install programs my PC couldn't handle, didn't go to any sites that knew were bad with viruses and such also had Malwareytes/spybot/avast/hijackthis to use, didnt install any toolbars, and tried not to have many programs open at the same time. I basically kept my PC simple with use.

Anyways around June I noticed some odd slowdowns
While playing Winamp and running a torrent with speeds of more than 400+ the audio would become choppy. This also happen when I would open FF, IE or any program while running Winamp, the audio would be choppy.

Extracting 700mb files from Winrar would take around 8mins

Playing Youtube, WMP, of VLC videos would be slow and choppy.

Transferring files from one PC to another over a crossover cable would take much longer. 4gigs of files would take about 20mins or so.

I am so sick of trying to fix this, Ive had this for about 3 weeks and paid for a lot of these training videos for a package.

Softwarevideo.com won't respond to my videos.
So please, if anyone knows why I cant see video, please help me because Ive tried different codecs and nothing works.

1 - I have QT7, regular .mov files work fine.
2 - I use VLC for most other videos, still wont play video in there.
3 - I have a Video Converter, the .mov files will not convert to any other format they just show the "Software Video Logo".

I dont know what is wrong, have i done something wrong?

I would right click > download, in my web browser it just shows the logo :\

I have a video that I aquired(Summer.Scents.Ep.01.V2.DVDrip.XviD-aznV.ogm)and I can't get this movie to play on my computer. I've tried BSplayer, Divx player, Windows Media Player...nothing seems to work. Using a program called GSpot(gives detailed info about a movie) I found something that refered to the .ogm as Ogg Media Stream. From that information I found a Web site called "Doom9.net" and it describes something called Ogg Vorbis, and keeps telling me that it's the new way to compress sound and store video...but I couldn't find out why I can't play this ".ogm video" on my computer.

Does anyone know what the heck I'm talking about. Please help if you can.
