PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Windows XP Home Ed.
Windows Media Player
COOD109B



When trying to open an AVI file (home video sent by e-mail), I get the following message:  "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. One or more codecs required to play the file could not be found."
Error message: COOD109B
Does anyone know what this means and how I can fix it? I did download Media Player 9.

Hi, I went to the link and downloaded Media Player 10, but still get the same message when trying to open the file.

Go back to the link and download the codec packages. They are shown on the right hand side of the screen. As compliant with the error message One or more codecs required.

If the Windows codecs don't fix playing the AVI file format, it is possible it's a DivX or XVid format, in which case you need other codecs, downloadable from http://www.divx.com/divx/download/

DivX came with its own player, have you tried that one?
Or else, do you have a software DVD player that you can try the file with? Something like PowerDVD or WinDVD will do the job.

When I try to open the file with DivX Player I get the following message: "The video file that you are opening includes video data that is not recognised by the DivX Player - The file contains the following type of data - FOURCC code MJPG - You may have to instal a new video codec on your computer."

This LINK will show you what codecs you need for some of your files. Use VideoToolBox (recommended), AVIcodec and GSpot, there is a link on that site to those. Then refer back to the original link to help you walk through the programs.
