Can play a video on computer but not on laptop

  1. I have downloaded real player onto my computer and I can play avi videos on it. I copied the real player onto my laptop and it will not play the videos. Anyone know what is wrong. All it plays is the sound on the laptop.

    Sounds like a video codec if I ever heard one. If that avi is a divx file try installing the current version of divx on that laptop.

    Agree; try to install new codecs to laptop or the whole codec pack as well to prevent a conflict between single codecs. But you'd rather delete all codecs already installed to install new codec pack.
    Go to (I would recommend K-Lite codec pack)
