this is the missus now, its me sorting it out for him (just thod id let u know coz sumtimes i forget where I am and mite put a little 'x' at the end)
we tried converting it in WMP but its not happening. WMP wont play it because its an unknown format and it wants me to download codecs. nero wont do it either. its for his works pc and for security reasons it will only play the original video files like AVI and MPEG, if u know what i dont mean lol.
the converter things are downloading them in the same format but at least its opening the videos instantly so im not having to right click and select the player. the media convert thingy is a bit faster so i'll use that. thanks every1 for ur help, much appreciated!! Kaz
