Problems playing video clips?

Having problems playing files like AVI? Here are some things you can try out:
  • Download the codecs from Cucusoft
  • Reinstall the P2P program (e.g. BitComet) then try redownloading the files
  • Try other torrent websites like TorrentSpy and read the comments for any codec details
  • Try a media player such as VLC Media Player
  • Try running a Hash Check on the downloaded torrents when complete
  • Try a different media player except VLC, WMP, Real and QuickTime
  • Or... the files are corrupted. Some files that people upload are 'blank' or 'dead', as in they contain nothing. Bad luck.
