  1. I downloaded this video and it is 200mb... but it only plays 1:23 seconds of the video. and if i click random places on the seek bar, it starts somewhere different than what's playing. it is a .mpg and it says mpeg format. i have many like this that do not give me this trouble. is there a certain codec i need or something? please help thanks

    the file you downloaded is probably corrupted.

    Could be a codec problem

    What player are you using? I have had the same problem aswell, try some different media players, VLC is quite good. or try finding some new codexes.

    If its an XviD or DivX vid try using Virtualdub Mod to see of you can recover it. I hate using VLC.
