ok so I have this link: http://www.hvwebtv.net/CHALLENGERR.mp4 to some video. Now apparently quicktime will play it, but that a 35mb piece of bloatware, I don't have installed. I go and try a find a nice simple player, why is this so difficult??? Does anybody have a simple explanation as to what all this crap about codecs, and such and why this stuff is such a mess? I don't want playlists, and skins, and bla, bla, bla, the old WMP (windows media player) was a fine interface for me, but it won't handle this file extension, and WMP's replacement windows media player classic get all tripped up with this codec thing, that I can't seem to resolve. Cant get a simple straight answer. So I'm turning to you guys, hopefully someone will have a nice simple turn-key solution to playing this video.
