Thanks for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to assisting you.

You will likely need to correct codec.

Download the Codec pack from my link below and install it please.

Click Me To Download

Once downloaded and you have run the installation, restart the computer and tell me if you can now play the Videos please.

Thank you

Hi Richard,


 


I did download the Codec you gave me and it doesn't work. It says an error occurred.

When did it say an error occurred?

When you downloaded the Codec, installed it?

And what was the exact error?

Thank you

I installed it the night we first talked. I also had to download videos to the flashdrive to try it out. When I first click on the video it just says " An error occurred. Click to restart from the beginning." When I do reclick, same thing happens.

ok, can I see one of these videos to make sure they do not have errors themselves?

- Click the following link: http://www.wikisend.com
- Upload the file to that website
- Once it is uploaded, the resulting page will display a "File ID" number.
- Please, give me that "File ID Number"

Thank you

Hi Richard,


 


I can't seem to upload it to the site. It says an error occurred.


I can play these on my laptop with windows 7 but can't on the laptop with chromebook

ok, the Codec is only for windows computer, not chromebook, so this is the problem.

Convert the video to AVI Please using the website below

http://video.online-convert.com/convert-to-avi

then play the AVI file on the Chromebook.

Let me know the results please

Thank you
