Which Codec and Where do i get it?

I am using AShampoo Clipfinder to download videos. WinAmp is my default player. It downloads as a winamp file but only plays sound, no video, I appear to be missing a codec. Any ideas?

Downloading as a "Winamp File" means nothing really. It only means that you have Winamp associated with that file-type.

So exactly what file-types are these videos? What are their file extensions?

If they are MPEG 4 (MP4, M4V) videos, then see this workaround (due to the fact that Winamp is not licensed to support that decoding). If not that video format, then you may be missing a needed codec. In that case, then GSpot should tell you which codec you need.

So, to recap...
  1. What TYPES of videos are they?
  2. What are the exact 3 or 4 character file extensions of these video files?
  3. What does GSpot show these files to be? Refer to this screenshot for instructions on using GSpot in case you require a missing codec for these files.

Don't email or PM me concerning Winamp. Instead, either start a NEW TOPIC or post a REPLY in the appropriate thread in these forums. This will also benefit others who may have a similar question or problem. But before posting, please first Search the forums and read all FAQs and all Sticky threads.
