Thread: Old movies won't play

    Default Old movies won't play

    I just dug up an old hardrive with lots of movies (mostly avi and mpeg) and they just wont play. When I open them they have audio but no picture comes up. Some of the movies I used an old webcam to record with but the file is in .avi format.

    I have CCC codec pack installed and windows vista codec pack.

    Any idea how to get these old movies of 5+ years old to play? Thanks

    download gspot and run each file through it, this will tell you what codec's you will need to download and install individually.
