can't hear this video...

I've tried it in mplayer, VLC, quicktime, and windows media player. I can see images, but not hear sound. Here's the message I get in VLC:

main: no suitable decoder module for fourcc ` ms'.
VLC probably does not support this sound or video format.

So it seems that maybe the file is just corrupted, huh? Or are there any other players that I could try?

thanks, it was mpg, and I changed it to mov, but it didn't help. I think it's probably a lost cause since quicktime gives the message, "could not open the file because there was an error in the program."

But any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Its a Windows Media 9 created MPEG file, (aka MS MPEG). You will not be able to play it on your Mac. You must use Windows Media Player, with Windows Media 9 Frameworks, which is not available for Mac. A large number of wmv's also have this same ability.

I have also seen this attached to .mpg or .mpeg files that were incoded back before the standardation of MPEG4, back when Apple and MS were fighting for their format. The MS-MPEG4 was based on asf file format. It has the same tag as MS-MPEG.

Both of these formats use WMA to incode sounds, thats what causes the programs.

Sorry you can't get it to work.

oh, well, damn that it won't work, but thanks for explaining the difficulty. At least it makes sense now.
