Install the Angelpotion codec, which, if I remember right, can be found in the latest Tsunami codec pack.

1. Open the file in Virtualdub
2. Go to File -> File Information. Post what information you see here.

Hey guys i have the same problem! KaZaA can't play all movies, just the sound.
But I do not understand anything at all what you are talking about. What is Angelpotion codec, Tsunami codec and Virtualdub?

Is there no media-player outhere who understands the formats automaticaly? What I have to do? How do I recognize what kind of format the downloaded video has?

Please help me

Codecs (COmpressor/DECompressor) are required to play (decode) the compressed contents of a video. There are many different kinds of codecs, such as the obscure Angelpotion and the far more popular DivX codecs.

The Tsunami codec pack is basically a collection of codecs and different utilities and tools. The Nimo is another well-known codec pack.

Virtualdub is basically an encoder and video capture program that has found its use amongst video editors, including DVD rippers ( ). You input your video to be converted, set some settings and wait for it to finish outputting to the final AVI file.

The Playa claims this capability, but it is a buggy piece of crap. As to recognising what codecs are used to compress a given video, you can load it up into Virtualdub and going to File -> File Information.
