Same here. I right-clicked and looked at the Error Details which says "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The file may be formatted with an unsupported codec, or the Internet security setting on your computer is set too high. Lower your browser's security setting, and then try again."
So I turned off my internet security but it still didn't play, so I assume there's a problem with the "codec". What does that mean?
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.
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?
WMV is probably the best way to go. Divx would be a close second, for me at least.
