I can't watch streaming movies

Posted

Hi! I am running Ubuntu 11.10. My Firefox version is 7.0.1. I want to watch streaming movies from http://www.watch-movies.net.in but I can't. I click the link so that the movie screen loads but it says that 'I should install the XviD codec to watch MPEG-4 movies'. Please help!

Hi BlueTower-

Sometimes, the video or audio content in a web page cannot be properly downloaded and displayed in Firefox. A required plugin may be missing, outdated, blocked, in conflict with another plugin or extension, or the content may be blocked for some reason. This article will help you solve these problems.

If this does not help, I found a page where you can download the XviD codec: http://www.xvid.org/Downloads.15.0.html. I am not familiar with this codec so I cannot guarantee that this will resolve the issue. Hope that helps.
