worked fine for me windows media player, etc. Other people are probably just missing the appropriate codec to view the video.

I updated my Windows Media Player but there's still an error.
Where can I download or update or whatever the Codec? What is Codec anyway??

I dont know what codec this video uses but try to download and install:

http://download.divx.com/divx/DivXInstaller.exe

See if that works. A Codec (Coder-Decoder) is software that knows how to display (decode) video/audio which was encoded by the same method.

For more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Codec

I am going to add a section to the "How to Upload Vides" sticky asking users to try to upload videos formatted as .WMV files because they are small and the most likely to have standard encoding and be playable on Microsoft Windows computers, which is what the majority of Internet users have. Does anyone know if linux and other operating systems can view .WMV files?

Can anyone recommend any other generally universal filetypes/codecs? I considered .mov but that would require downloading Quicktime if the user doesn't already have it.

WMV is probably the best way to go. Divx would be a close second, for me at least.

I'd rather members didn't have to download/install anything to watch the videos and DivX requires a codec that the typical computer user doesn't have.

I played around with Windows Media Player to try to save a video file as a .WMV and couldn't find a way. I have version 10. Am I missing something? Do you know of a way members can convert to .WMV without having to download any 3rd party software?
