View Full Version : Evangelion

04-26-2002, 03:22 PM
I've found that a lot of the Evangelion episodes you can get on Kaazaa are corrupt, there are no sound.
The media player says:
"Sending request for codec"

The movie plays, but there are no sound.

Is it the movie files, or is it something with my media player? Are anyone else experiencing this?

additionally, use directconnect.

maybe the files are corrupt, maybe you don't have the codec. are these divx files? are you using the divx player?

but yeah, just use directconnect and find a good anime hub. episodes aren't usually corrupt or broken on those.

yeah it's most likely you are missing a codec, in addition to Direct Connect try WinMX

I have a DivX codec, but perhaps it's outdated. Where can I get the latest?

www.divx.com (!)

DL:ed the latest DivX Player/Codec (2.0/5.0 I think), but it still doesn't work. Must be corrupt files.

right click on it select properties-> click summary -> check what is says under the codecs.

you are playing it in the divx player and not any other right? I find that no sounds happen when I play in wmp but plays in the playa

04-27-2002, 09:28 AM
It says "Audio codec: unknown" in the properties, perhaps I should have mentioned this earlier :). I've tried to play it in both Media Player and DivX Player, but no sound in either...
Hm, I think I will check out Playa that you mentioned. www.Playa.com? :)

04-27-2002, 03:54 PM
Nope, the Playa couldn't play the files at all. Do you know where I can find more "odd" Audio-codecs, since media player cannot find it itself. Could it be that the movie uses some non-standard audio codec?

Selecting properties on the file gives this info:

Windows Media Audio V2, 64 kbps, 44 kHz, stereo (for audio/video)

352 x 235, 91215 bildrutor, 29,970 bildrutor/sek, 40 kB/sek, okänt format
(swedish: 91215 frames, 29,970 frames/sec, unknown format)

well... try indeo, um mpeg 2 / 1 they don't come with divx or windows... theres alos a korean divx too i think...

It works. Finally! I have 5 double-episodes (10!!! episodes) of Evangelion to watch tomorrow. Lucky I saved them instead of deleting them.

If anyone else have experienced this problem, install MPEG layer 4.
Thanks for your help, everyone.

Where did you find it?
I d/l'ed a few and the double episodes work but the single ones dont....

04-28-2002, 09:49 AM
I searched on google on "download mpeg 4" something, and found it. Can't remember the adress. You can probably get it on Kaazaa too.

04-28-2002, 10:20 AM
Im not finding anything good.....

>I have 5 double-episodes

You got the doubles for 3-4?
Cause thats the one i couldnt find and those are the ones that arent working...

04-28-2002, 10:27 AM
Ooops. Found the double. Sorry =)
