I recently installed the DivX Codec and it is working brilliantly with a few of my .AVI files. However, there are certain files that cause Windows Media Player 11 to prompt me with a Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file. (Error C00D1199) Is there another codec that I need to install? (I would rather play my file with Windows Media Player than VLC.) Is it possible for this to be resolved? Thanks.

AVI is a file architecture that has codec plug-ins. Just because a file is an AVI does not mean that it will decode on your computer. You also have to have the codec that the media file was compressed with!
