Dear 100 Hour Board,
How do you install the movie playing feature onto Windows Media Player? I have a movie but all that I can hear is the sound. And who likes to watch a movie without the actual movie playing? Alright, I admit it, it is kinda fun. But I would really love to be able to watch it too. Can you help me out?

A: Dear Slow,

You are probably missing a video codec needed to play your movie, the most common one is Divx. Go to divx.com and download their free codec (make sure you don't get the adware supported Divx-Pro.) If that doesn't work, than maybe you need the Xvid codec. However, without seeing the file, it is hard to know which codec you need.
