I have been able to download and play all previous Fifth Gear and Top Gear episodes.

However, the most recent Best of Top Gear 19.03.06 plays the audio but not the video. When I launch WMP it says error loading codec and then just plays the audio.

Gspot said it is XVID and I have compatible codec installed on my computer. I can play other XVID files just fine...

WHAT GIVES?


DirectShow partially succeeded to play file. The actual text of the error or warning is:

0x00040242: VFW_S_PARTIAL_RENDER - Some of the streams in this movie are in an unsupported format.

The following combination of filters were used:

{C:\Documents and Sett..-..p Gear - 19.03.06.avi} (Audio Source)
{AVI Splitter} (Audio Splitter)
{MPEG Layer-3 Decoder} (Audio Decoder)
{Default DirectSound Device} (Audio Renderer)

Download VLC Media Player. Google it to find where it is. It should work...

Let me know...

As mentioned in the news, it's a goofy rip. VLC should play it fine. ;)
