Someone sent me an attachment to their E-Mail named Computer.mpg. In the box next to it, it says the type is MPEG Video (video/mpeg) Encoding base64, Desc. Computer (Movie Clip (MPEG).
I have two Gateway computers, one running Windows 98 and the other Windows 95. I have tried to open these right from the E-mail program on both machines but nothing happens. It asks me to save which I do. When I try to open it on the Windows 95 computer, it just hangs up and I have to close down the system. I have gone to Start/Programs/Accesories/Active Movie Control thinking I can open the movie in there. On Windows 95, it brings it up and then it hangs up. On the new Windows 98 computer I have been able to finally open the movie and play it but then my system seems to hang up for everything else.
The question is: what am I doing wrong? What am I supposed to use to open this movie in? The friend who sent it to me said it just opened when she clicked on it and had no problem. Any help will be appreciated.
