    Some files are just fakes.. Please review the user comments before downloading a file from the torrent site...

    you cant do that usually, it would say its broken and if you still continue, you would be lucky if the starting was downloaded

    Generally, there is a sample clip, some 15mb or so, chk that first...

    Try VLC player, it supports almost all formats. Download the player from torrents and test. There are a lot of torrent sites which give original content.

    Yes I did try it in VLC as well as WMP the file size shows above 1GB but plays only for few seconds and then provides link to download playpixx. I guess the download itself must be fake. I had kept the comp on for three days

    There are torrent websites like "Vertor.com" which indexes torrents after checking them. And almost all torrents from private trackers like "Demonoid.com" are safe.

    Media Player Classic- HC with K-Lite Codec Pack, Real Alternative and Quick Time Alternative can play all media files.

    But there are many other media players with inbuilt codecs and even more feature. The reason I like it, is because I can customize [enable\disable\rearrange] MPC menu.
