    OK so Junk said mean stuff to me me when I asked this in chit chat. I'm sure he will do it again here but I'll keep on plugging til I get my plug in. It seems like more and more when I click on a video link here I get a message that windows media player can't find an appropriate decompressor. I am totally computer challenged so can someone tell me where I'm supposed to get one of these?

    [glow=black,2,2].... Decompressor station .. I think there's one 'bout 50 miles up the hwy :flipoff2:

    Why don't you update your software ... might even be part of windoze updates ??? I remember having your problem once , but lately it's all been good .

    Hell you could even surf to download.com and try grabbing a new player ... [/glow]

    http://www.windowsupdate.com I think....outta make sure you have everything correct. Another option is to right click the video file, and save to your desktop first. Then, open from there...my guess is you have file associations messed up and yer computer is convinced it's a text file or something....
