Some AVI video files are
corrupt, or don't play, or you receive the error:
Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might
not support the file type or might not support the codec that was
used to compress the file.
Corrupt video files could
be caused by several things:
-your computer is set for hibernation mode or standby
-your Windows Media Player codecs are corrupt or damaged
First, see if the video file plays on a different machine. If it
does, then your Windows Media codecs are damaged. You can fix this
Microsoft's codec website.
Also try the WMPlugins
If the video file won't play on any computer then the AVI file itself
Make sure you have a good UPS system for power surges and failures.
Also, disable system Standby and Hibernation features. You can still
enable screen savers and shut power to your Monitor, but not to the
computer or Hard drive...uViewIt needs these 2 things to record video.
