This is similar to fjahoda's question (#110), which is why I'm giving it a moderate rating.
I'm on an NT 4.0 server machine trying to play an AVI file with the standard media
player.  The error message reads "Video not available, cannot find 'vids:iv41' decompressor.

I tried looking in Control Panel-> Add/Remove Programs -> Multimedia -> Windows NT Setup
tab -> Multimedia -> Details as was suggested in the response the other person's question,
but there was nothing there about video at all, let alone compressors.

Any ideas?  Thanks in advance.

you need the Video Interactive Codec.
It's available at:
http://www.intel.com/pc-supp/multimed/indeo/codec.htm

Download and install the Codec and you'll be on your way.

This answer was good enough to solve my problem.  It might help to be a little more
specific about what to download.  There were quite a few options at the Intel site and
I made my best guess.  Turns out it was the right one.   Thanks for the information.
