Movies Answered

I looked through the FAQs and Help, and did a search and I am still lost. I can not view any movies. Do I need to download a viewer of some sort? Be gentle, I'm new to most of this computer stuff. Thanx, S.

I may have it figured out. When I opened with Explorer it asked if I wanted to download the player for this file. I did not have a "Quicktime player" on my computer. I will shortly. Thanx Again.

You shouldn't need extra software - when you click on them, there should be a play button visible (a triangle, pointing towards the right). Click that, and the video should play. (Others will ask - what are you using? Windows? Apple? Firefox? Internet Explorer?)

I'm using firefox and when I hit the movie, I get a window from the computer asking what to open the program with. I am still confused.

I have tried opening with "windows media player" For some reason media player won't play the content. Today I came online through "Explorer" I want to see if it is a "FireFox" issue. Thank You for all the input. I've only had the computer for 1.5 years now and I am still learning a lot of stuff.S.

. Make sure the checkbox that says something like "always use this program" is checked when you select the program to use. . You may be able to go into the options for your video player and have it tell Windows to use it when playing certain types of videos.
