Codec Help

I've downloaded three torrents from torrentguy, and when I go to play them Windows Media Player plays the entire SOUND track, but no video - just the default WMP visualization.

The player attempts to download the codec but fails each time and there is no dialogue or text that tells me WHICH codec is missing.

Can anyone help?

I would go here and DL one of the free Klcodec Packs: http://home.hccnet.nl/h.edskes/mirror.htm

The klcodec Packs also includes Media Player Classic.

Ps. also would DL the QuickTime & Real Alternitive codecs. Install them after installing the Klcodec Pack.

Download the K-Lite Codec Pack at http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_Lite_Codec_Pack.htm

It includes the codecs that will let you play most of the codecs on the web and includes a great little player that can play almost anything from dvds to .avis, .wmvs, .mpgs, and .mp3s.
