can someone tell me how to resolve this "codec required" if I play an
.avi video with my media player. it's version 11. and I'm using Windows XP.
Download and install K-Lite Codec Pack to your machine, and you'll be able to play them.
EDIT: The video you want to watch seems to need ACELP Codec. Download and install this codec from the following link and try again:
ACELP Codec (Scroll down the page for downloading options)
I tried the same link to the office.microsoft.com video on my computer, which has zillions of codecs installed, and the link doesn't work.
Both Firefox and IE give the same result : The video doesn't play. When I click on Play, the player status changes momentarily to "Connecting to media" then returns to "Ready", no matter how many times I click on Play.
The problem is probably on the other side with the Microsoft media server.
