Answers :

What type of extension does this media file have? A common one is .bin and Microsoft's Windows Media Player will definitely not play it. There is an excellent FREE shareware media player available from VideoLAN called VLC Media Player and the size it under 10 MB. It is the one I have been using for the past couple years and have not run into a movie clip it couldn't recognise or play.

\015\012I can give you more info if you like. I do currently have a zipped copy of the file that is a self-extracting executable. But if you went to their website you could also download the user manual and check out a bunch of other info. It is fairly easy to use for just a basic function like playing your movie. However it does have a lot of features and settings should you choose to use them - that is where the manual comes in handy..

\015\012There's lots of software out there that will be able to play your movie for you. There is not very many free packages that are any good, so be vary. And then there are ones available on a 30-day trial then you have to pay for them. I highly recommend this program from VideoLAN and have not had any problems with it other than one little easy-to-fix quirk. It has to do with a setting that can mute the sound, a very simple and easy fix. After the first time it happens and you fix it, then you know what to do from that point on and it never happens again.
You have to download an up to date player like mp4 player .
