If you can't open it with Windows Media Player than you probably need to update it. Try right clicking on the file while holding down SHIFT. Select the 'Open with' option and choose wmplayer, realplayer, quicktime, or whatever it is that you normally use and see if that helps. If not, try updating and check back here if that fails as well.

just download a new player like GOM.
even if you do manage to open up your porn, gom player does it better.

besides, there are much more files that it's compatible with.


edit: flv player is also a good player. both players are also less ram raping then wmp.

Ok,so i open it in GOM with open file and when i click on the movie file it say invalid file name (AND I CANT CHANGE IT) and when i open it with open with and use GOM they cant find the codec

First, GOM is a bit overrated, but whatever.

An Invalid File Name means that whoever submitted whatever you're trying to download did something wrong that is preventing you from viewing it. Some of the files might be missing or damaged or they used a different codec that is not installed or not supported by WMP.

Try VLC, it opens almost anything you throw at it.

Also, if you can't open it, maybe try re-downloading it and if that doesn't work, try downloading from somewhere else.

VLC Media Player is what you need.

Two people does not a consensus make. Anyway, the type of player you use is irrelevant because an invalid file is still an invalid file.

Thanks Yoda. How is the ethereal entity of the afterlife in the Jedi Force?
