    hi like the topic says i have problem streaming AVI with MPC and Mega K-Lite Pack.

    i tried http streaming from megaupload for a certain RMVB file with MPC and it worked.
    i tried playing an AVI file that is inside my hard disk with MPC and it worked.

    i tried http streaming from megaupload for any AVI files, it will not work, it just says Opening File... and its stuck there forever.... anyone know how to solve this?

      The AVI container is inherently not designed for streaming. AVI files have their index at the end, which makes near-impossible anything except sequential playback.

      Also, avoid codec packs until you can build one yourself.
