I have an mpeg i downloaded from bit torrent.The sound plays fine all the way through and the video sometimes is visible, but usually is distorted and green. Does anyone know of any whay I can fix that so I can watch the mpeg?

Sounds like the Paris Hilton video.

Na, I didnt want to say what it is to avoid violating DVDtalks policies on piracy. So we'll just say its a feature length MPEG file.

Could be a codec problem. I had a video file that played like that (distorted and green video). I forget what it was. Just some fairly short clip I d/l'ed from a Web site. I thought the file was probably corrupted, but I d/l'ed the latest DivX codec and after that it played fine. So perhaps you need a newer codec for whatever format that file is in.
