Members need to supply these details >>> System details - help us to help you (click on blue link)


Moderators

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.

Default CODECs

Hi and welcome !

I have 'moved' your post to this Tips & Tricks froum as your question is of a general nature and not specific to LimeWire... Hopefully you will receive more replies here !

It sounds as if you simply are lacking the 'correct' CODECS.
That stands for COder DECoder.

There are numerous codec packs available and many people have their favourites and quite strong opinions about them... Surprise !

I don't have any 'favourites'... I just use the ones that always work and are stupid-simple to install...

I routinely recommend Cole2k Codecs which you can find and download by clicking on the same in my signature below.

Be sure to download Cole2k Media - Codec Pack V6.1.0 Standard
The link will take you directly to the v6.1.0 Standard download page.

Stay away from the Advanced version for now.

Installation is very simple.
Install only the Codecs... no other 'goodies', right ?

When finished, shutdown your computer and when you next start you should be able to play just about anything !

Also, you will find many many other posts here on the subject of codecs.

Hope it helps... Let us know...

once installed the codecs do their own thing..which is to allow you to play many types of video file formats...my rule has always been if the codecs don't play a file, then the file is 'bad' and I get rid of it...

always is relative....all files available on gnutella that are trustworthy are in .avi or some other 'similar' format...so yes, they require transcoding to DVD format...there are places where you can acquire DVD images that only require mounting in a virtual DVD drive then copying to a real DVD, but those are ~4GB files and I rarely choose to spoil myself in that fashion, so I like many others take the ~1hr transcode/burn route

Actually some newer DVD-players will play avi files (DivX and XviD). You should try and check if your player will. If it does, then you can just burn avi files as data files i.e. multiple videos on the same DVD depending on file size.

Yes...

BUT...

I have yet to see any domestic hardware-type player that will play a plain vanilla .avi file. This includes the rather magical KISS machines.

DivX, yes... XviD, yes... But not straight .avi files.
A further problem is that many of the files available for D/Ling are tagged with references to DivX but the files are not actually in DivX format... They are just plain .avi files !

Hope I am wrong and just maybe 6 months out of date... (Instead of 60 years !!!)
