    Windows Media Player

    I downloaded a video, and when I play it in Windows Media Player, it plays it as if its an audio file, and not a video. Are there some add ons, that I should download, that will allow me to correctly play the video?

    Thanks

    Thanks,
    That did the trick. I went to downloads.com, and downloaded DivX Codec, that came with its own player, and it works like a charm.
