Try getting a new copy of the Microsoft Windows Media Player from
     http://www.microsoft.com/windows/mediaplayer/download/default.asp

or Quicktime 3.0 from http://www.apple.com/quicktime/

I think that both of them have the Cinepak (cvid) codec.

Andy,

Both Quicktime and the media player should have the cvid codec.  If you no longer
have it, then perhaps reloading them might help.  That's why I suggested that course of
action.

Ok, a question and a comment.

When you downloaded and installed the new QuickTime, did you use QuickTime to play
the video, or did you just double-click on the file from Explorer ?  Unless QuickTime is
reqistered to handle that file type, you'll need to use QuickTime to open the file manually.

And the comment, I just tried http://www.microsoft.com/windows/mediaplayer/download/default.asp
and it brought me right to a page that says "Begin downloading..."  Isn't that where you ended
up ?  When I click on the "begin downloading", I get the Windows Media Player download.

In that case, why did you reject my first answer and accept an answer that appears to have
nothing to do with what solved your problem ?
