Hey Izzent, this Job. I got the Cd you sent today. Just wondering if it was just a music file or a video file as well coz that means I have to find video player. Ok Hope you're well and you get this soon. Write back.
i know that question wasnt directed at me... but oh well, jerms isnt here.... and i dont know when he'll be back... but anyways we allready talked about that...
i'm pretty sure its a video. not just audio... so i'm afriad you'll probably have to find a video player.... at least i was under the impression it was like that.... cant you just put it in your computer and see which way it comes up?
...i could ask him if you still want to know....
Yeah I gathered. If you could ask then please do. I might pay more attention to it if its a video but i will listen to it if i find time.
ok... i'll try and remember to ask him
hopefully have an answer for you by the end of the day
Danke, sehr... alot.
ok. i asked. no reply as yet... i'll keep you posted. maybe i'll get one tonight, and if i do i'll try and let you know the answer before i leave tomorrow.
Ok doke. Thanks alot. Hope to get an answer soon.
yay! i got the answer for you!
...ok.... its an avi file on a data cd. so it will play on your computer, it is a movie.... you dont have to get a dvd player or anything.
there we go
hope you enjoy it.
Will it work on a dvd player? I only got the sound on the computer last time i tried.
hmm... i dont know.
he told me that it would play on your computer. i think if its an avi file it wont play in a dvd player. but then again i have no idea at all. perhaps it will. i know that some dvd's i've burned will play in my dvd player but not in my parents... so it may depend.... sorry to not be more helpful...
Well it's not a DVD, so it definitely won't work in a DVD player. It's computer only.
Probably the reason you can't see the video is because you don't have the right video codec on your computer; these are like 'patches' - bits of code which make stuff work properly, basically.
Depending on what you're using to view the movie it should be able to fix itself. For example if you're using Microsoft Media Player (gee I had to think about what it was called - you can tell I've been away from home for too long recently...) then all you need to do is stay connected to the internet and it will usually try to download the right codec when it discovers it needs one. If it can't find it then you need to look for it though, which is a bit more of a nuisance. If that's the case, try googling for a DivX codec - that's probably what it needs. Actually the program should tell you the name of it automatically.
Have I thoroughly confused you? Again? 'Coz I've almost confused myself at the moment; my brain is so dead from work I'm not even certain that the sentence I'm finishing is the same as the one I started...
PS If you have an international text ability thing, I should get your number some time. Probably through Arisztid if she's keen.
Glad you got the movie!
will it do the same thing wiht songs?
because job sends me songs, and then i cant hear them because it says i dont have the lisence... and thats using roxio.... but if i convert it to windows media player will it work for me?
i'll give you his no if you like, if thats ok wiht him.... but i'm not too sure its right... he didnt seem to get eihter of the texts i sent him....
Never used Roxio before. If he's sending you MP3s then you should be able to use just about anything to play them.
If they're not MP3s then what are they? Text me 'coz I gotta go.
Sure you can have my number but you'll have to get it from Aritz coz of my paranoia. LoL.
Other than the words the and DVD I didn't understand any of that. But I'll try again watching it on Media Player and d/l the video thingies, or just listen to it with the sound and no picture.
you spelled my name wrong!!
i'll give him you number, dont worry
i could try and explian what i understood from that explanation for you... if you like
jerms wont be back for quite a bit i dont think... not sure though.
i am texting you jerms . and they are mp3's so i'll try it on windows media player... hope it works there...
Should work on media player.
Sorry I was erm... drunk.
I get the basic idea, just not the computer talk in between.
lol, you people are funny!
Is it working for you now?
Probably. I havent seen it in a while its in my room!
i know that feeling.....
and despite what i said this afternoon..... i got umm... distracted and so i didnt actually end up cleaning my room. whoops... i suppose theres always tomorrow.
I have that problem. Unfortunatly my geography book is somewhere in the house and I don't know where.
