    Windows Media Player error - 0xC00D1199: Cannot play the file

    Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The file is either corrupt or the Player does not support the format you are trying to play.

    Above error results from trying to open a .avi file. Never been good with this stuff and have previously had other error messages, for other .avi files, relating to codecs etc.

    Is there anything simple I can try or is it most likely that the file is corrupt? How can I establish which codecs I have and which I need?

    Apologies for the total lack of knowledge in this area.

    Thanks in advance.

    Try installing the DiVX codec:

    http://download.divx.com/divx/DivX511Bundle.exe

    That may help. Keep in mind that not every AVI file is a healthy one.

    Downloaded it and easily installed it, but it failed to open the file. Probably corrupt as you said, but worth a try.
    Thanks, Bi-Polar Bill, for the prompt and knowledgeable reply as ever.

    Give the dubiously titled GSpot a try - it will tell you what codec is needed to play an AVI file and determines whether you have it or not.

    Windows Media Player cannot play the file. You may encounter this error message for one of the following reasons:

    The file type is not supported by the Player. The following table lists the file types supported by the Player. If the file type you are trying to play is included in this table, then the file may have been encoded by using a codec that is not supported by Windows Media Player. If this is the case, Windows Media Player cannot play the file.
    The file type is supported by the Player, but the file was compressed by using a codec that is not supported by the Player.
    The file type is supported, but you are trying to play it in a way that is not supported by the Player. For example, you may have attempted to drag a DVD file with a .vob extension from a DVD to the Windows Media Player icon. Or you may have attempted to open a .vob file by clicking Open on the File menu.
    You are trying to play one part of a multipart file. Use a newsreader or other program to combine the files, and then try again.
    The following table lists the file types (formats) supported by Windows Media Player.

    File type (format) File name extension
    Music CD Playback (CD audio) .cda
    Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF) .aif, .aifc, and .aiff
    Windows Media audio and video files .asf, .asx, .wax, .wm, .wma, .wmd, .wmp, .wmv, .wmx, .wpl, and .wvx
    Windows audio and video files .avi and .wav
    Windows Media Player skins .wmz
    Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) .mpeg, .mpg, .m1v, .mp2, .mpa, .mpe, .mp2v*, and .mpv2
    Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) .mid, .midi, and .rmi
    AU (UNIX) .au and .snd
    MP3 .mp3 and .m3u
    DVD video .vob
    Macromedia Flash .swf




    *To play .mp2v files, you must have a software or hardware DVD decoder installed on your computer.

    Notes

    To play DVDs, you must have a DVD-ROM drive, and a software or hardware DVD decoder installed on your computer. If you do not have a compatible DVD decoder installed, DVD-related commands, options, and controls do not appear in the Player and you cannot play DVDs. By default, Windows does not include a DVD decoder. For more information about DVD decoders, see Windows Help.
    DVD playback is only available on select versions of Windows.
