Video Bar Is Back; -And A Question..



Somehow during Blogger updates (I guess) my video bar dissapeared, but it is now re-installed at the right side of the page.

-- Also; A friend sent me a whole collection of DVD's with tons of video of Bagua. The only thing is, my computer can't read what appears to be VCD format. I took it to a friends computer and he was able to open them. I have XP, he uses Vista. He opened them with Windows Media Player, but it doesn't open on mine. The web has suggested companies that will sell me a download to read VCD for about $30.
***Anybody have any suggestions?***

UPDATE:-- VLC download worked great. Now if I could just get the damned video bar on the right side of the Blog to only show my video's and not random crap in-between!

Try VLC.

It's a free, open-source media player that plays damn near everything.

Also, see if the VCDs will play in your DVD player.

They won't play in my tv DVD player or the DVD player in my computer, but I'll try VLC as you suggested.
Welcome to Dojo Rat, and Thanks!

You can also use Media Player. VCD movies are just .mpg files with a different extension.

You might also try the Windows Essentials Media Codec Pack, if you're using the Windows Media Player.

The K-Lite Mega Codec Pack, which includes Media Player Classic, has played many types of files that I could not otherwise play on Win2000/WinXP. Even some with unusual file name extensions such as .vro. It will play DVDs, and though I've not tried it, I suspect it will play VCDs as well.

go to

and you can find it there. I have been using various versions of it for several years now, and it has really helped.
