when I click the video file for preview, it shown

" This file cannot be previewed because there is no previewer installed for

it. "

" Browse for previewers online"

when I try click the link to "browse for previewer online",

it shown another message " A World Wide browser, such as window(R) Internet

Explorer(R), is required to use this feature."

am I missing something or the setup was wrong ?? Does anyone can help with

this ..

thanks

Not all video files can be previewed. It all depends on the file format,

which codecs have been used and which codecs are installed on your system.

Can you open it when you save it to your Desktop first and then try to open

it?

What kind of video file is it? .mpg, .avi, .mov, other?

Do you open it in Windows Media Player or in another player?

Are you using Windows XP or Windows Vista?

The Windows Media Player Previewer is part of the Operating System and not

of Office 2007. Windows Vista contains the WMP Previewer, WIndows XP

doesn't.
