    What's up Fellow NLE's

    I've been tyring to figure out what the codec is for this video.

    Its a link from a fireworks video site and Gspot does not know what
    the codec is.

    Can anybody shead some light on how to play it?

    What does one do when Gspot can not identify the codec?

    This site pretty cool it has tons and I mean tons of fireworks videos.
    I just wish I could view the damn things!

    Thanks for the help

    I just right-clicked on your link and used the "Save target as..."
    option. This downloaded the file, which is exactly what it
    says it is; a .wmv (ASF) file. That's Windows Media. GSpot
    also reports it as such.

    HA! No, it's not a trick question the damn file will not play in my WM
    player 10. It's driving me nuts. What kills me is that some will play
    and some will not.

    I don't know what the heck is going on.

    Plays fine here. Properties in Windows Media Player 10 says that the codec
    is "Windows Media Video 9", 320x240, 291 kbs.

    Thanks Steve,

    I think you just discovered my problem. My Windows Media Player is
    not playing ver 9.0 WMV files.

    Werid, its a starting point to resolve the issue. Thanks
