Windows Media Player or any other program will not play AVI Type Videos RRS feed

  • Question

  • I probably made a mistake be downloading a codec from the internet, it did not work so i deleted or uninstalled the program, now Windows Media Player will not play any AVI type videos. I have tried to find a way to get it back but i am not sure how. I should of used system restore but i did not think of it at the time and i think it has been too long. I think the file: avifil32.dll might be damaged but i dont know for sure that is the file. Does anyone have any ideas for this, i probably need to download a dll or a new codec. My computer is a Acer Aspire one laptop with a Windows XP OS.
