There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Question Can only play mpg movies

Greetings everyone! Got a problem and before giving me hell, yes I have searched the forum, but have not been able to find an answer to my problem.
As you may have already guessed, I'm a newbie, and I have a pc running the Windows XP software. I have downloaded a couple of mpg movies and they play fine, but when I download a mpeg movie or a mov file I get a messsage that says "cannot open blah blah blah or .mpeg. I have downloaded the DivX player and codes along with the xp_codec_pack 2.0.6 and the VLC media player and still nothing but the same message. I sure that its a easy fix but I'm at a lost. I'm offering half of my kindom for the correct solution and I will put the check in the mail tommorrow. Thank you for your anticipated replies.

I use WMP and the K-lite codec pack...very few video files won't play...

not sure if .mov files are covered in that codec pac, but I don't even bother with those (nor .wmv files)...

So Long and Thanks for All the Files

Beware of the big 3 insurance companies in Texas! Read your policies carefully (maybe you'll need a lawyer) Allstate, Farmers & State Farm are overextended and their 'coverage' is worthless...a true waste of your money Read This

I have been using Media Player Classic for some time now (looks like ms windows older media player. It is simple; FREE; It has very usable keyboard functionality and the slow / fast motion & frame by frame keyboard shortcuts & buttons actually work. It plays almost everything w/ the right codec’s.

DivX Codec is a very important, it utilizes all the latest tech (HT dual core etc.) and is well known for nearly doubling a pc’s quality output& it’s free. Windows Media Player 10, fully upgraded is a necessary evil because it shares most of its abilities with other player formats and the latest / newest technologies (& their codec’s) are usually made available to Windows before anyone else so occasionally it is the only thing that will work.

Lastly to complete the formula, including .mov .asx .asf and MORE the creators of Mplayerc released QuickTime Alternative; a newer version of Media Player Classic that plays...well…here is an excerpt from the Installation agreement information:

Media Player Classic [version]
This is a full-featured player which has internal decoding support for DVD, MPEG-1/2, MP3, MP2, AAC, AC3 and DTS. It also has internal support for opening MP4, Matroska and Ogg containers. Media Player Classic is also capable of playing QuickTime and RealMedia content if those codecs are installed.

QuickTime codecs [version]
Required for playing QuickTime content.
QuickTime plugin for Internet Explorer
Allows you to view QuickTime content that is embedded in a webpage. This is installed together with the QuickTime codecs.
QuickTime plugin for Firefox/Mozilla/Netscape/Opera
Allows you to view QuickTime content that is embedded in a webpage.
Extra QuickTime plugins
Some additional plugins.
QuickTime DirectShow parser
Allows you to play QuickTime content in all DirectShow enabled players. This filter works with most files, but not all files. It is therefore recommended to use Media Player Classic to play QuickTime files.

This is my best recommendation & should handle just about everything.
I hope this helps

Download Blaze Media Pro and convert (save) the files to mpg files. For a movie it takes a while to convert (save).
