I have some home movies that I have converted but they won't play through a media player. The file extension shows .mpg and it looks there is data in the file but every time i go to play it i get the error:

 

"Can't play the media file

The file exits, but does not seem to have any video"

 

Any ideas?

that I have converted

 

What did you convert them with (correct software name)?

 

What format did you convert them to and in what quality?


I'm just a fellow user so please don't blame Roxio for any misguidance I may have provided.

Size of the files (in general).

 

Also try the free VLC player to play them.  If that doesn't work then almost nothing else will.

You can try to upgrade your software. Maybe you're severely out of date with that version. Or try the VCL player which supports most of the video formats. But I think that it's probably about the compatibility. You can use some converters like wondershare, winx, dts to ac3 converter to convert the videos to some formats such as mp4, avi, which are compatible with most of players.
