I just downloaded Kazaa, and i got a movie. I think it is in .avi format. When I go to play it, it does not work at all in the kazaa theatre, in quicktime it only plays sound and I lost media player from the comp a while ago.
Does anyone know if I have to download something to make it work?
You're better off not using Kazaa. It installs a ton of spyware and a program that will activate on a set date and download a crap program. It will then use your bandwidth to send popup ads to other Kazaa users.
If you hear sound but no picture then chances are you probably need the DivX codec. A simple search on Google and you should be able to find one. Just download, install, you may need to restart, and you are off to the races!
I never knew KaZaA had spyware...Is there any way to get it off without hindering the program? I haven't been able to find one without spyware since Morpheus, and since Morpheus changed formats it isn't as good...I love the KaZaA format. Is there any other filesharing program that uses p2p and doesn't have spyware? Does Groakster have spyware?
I reeealy want to get that spyware off...help is appreciated.
If you remove the Spyware, Kazaa will not work and it won't allow you to uninstall it. Uninstall Kazaa and that BDE crap first then run Adaware. You will truly be surprised how much B.S. Kazaa installs without your permission.
Just went to cnet and downloaded the KaZaA Cydoor remover and installed it, and I have no ads now. Cydoor (the spyware) is gone as well as BDE and all popups, including the banner ads. I assume this is the same as the link SKYSERVICE gave...
Thx for the help, and if you haven't downloaded the patch do it. It works like a charm!
