How to play videos?
You may experience problem with this setup in WMP (windows media player) or some other players if you don’t have appropriate codec.
Easiestsolution is to install free video player VLC (videolan). This is multi platform player and you don’t need any additional codec.
Since I’m on Windows platform I personally use SMPlayer.
MPlayer is a free media player for Windows and Linux withbuilt-in codecsthat can play virtually all video and audio formats. It doesn’t need any external codecs. Just install SMPlayer and you’ll be able to play all formats without the hassle to find and install codec packs.
One of the most interesting features of SMPlayer: itremembers the settings of all files you play. So you start to watch a movie but you have to leave… don’t worry, when you open that movie again it will be resumed at the same point you left it, and with the same settings: audio track, subtitles, volume…
SMPlayer is a graphical user interface (GUI) for the award-winningMPlayer, which is capable of playing almost all known video and audio formats. But apart from providing access for the most common and useful options of MPlayer, SMPlayer adds other interesting features like the possibility to play Youtube videos or download subtitles.
