    If VLC can't play it then that's a worry. Where's the file from? :)

    Yeah, if VLC can't play it then it's probably corrupt.

    Are you sure it's an MPG? Is it a WMV? Most WMVs can be played in VLC but not the most modern ones. :eek:

    Hmm, if it's playing on a different computer then it's obviously not corrupt after all. Maybe it's not an MPEG file, but has been renamed with an .mpg extension. Try renaming it to .wmv and see whether it plays.
