A technical question --

The newsreels would be an incredible research tool if I could read the things. I download directly to a CD, but when I try to open them in Windows Media Player (my default player) I get a window saying WMP can't play the file because some codecs [sic] are missing. I don't usually use avi files; the only ones on the computer are small files that came with other programs, and WMP opens them OK. Is my problem with the Wochenschauen due to the size of the files? Or is there some European avi standard that my PC can't handle? Can anyone help?
