I downloaded a video but when I press the play button in Vuze, the window comes out but after a bit of wait the movie does not play (the stop/pause button is grayed at the same time, no play button on the window)

Also another thing I noticed while playing a video that DID play, was that I didn't know how to fast forward or backward. When I play a video through quicktime I just press the corresponding buttons on F7-F10, but it does not work for Vuze player.

Why not using one of the two already open threads ? superuser.com/questions/108537/opening-an-avi-file superuser.com/questions/108478/… Or, at least, mark them as answered or close them. – Studer Feb 14 '10 at 3:16

@Studer: this isn't a threaded forum, it's a question-and-answer site. we prefer separate questions be posted separately, unless they are closely related. marking an answer as accepted is encouraged, but not required. – quack quixote Feb 14 '10 at 3:58
    
Does that particular movie play properly in either QuickTime or VLC? – fideli Feb 14 '10 at 7:06

So you downloaded a pirated movie (which may very well be a fake) via torrent from the interwebs and now you'd expect us to help you out? You got to be kidding. – Molly7244 Feb 14 '10 at 22:04

Use VLC to play the video.

+1; If it can be played, VLC can play it. If it can't be played, VLC will god damn try. – Phoshi Feb 14 '10 at 22:07
