I have just downloaded an mpeg movie from punkrockvids.com. Then, when i want to see the videoclip, it display this error message:

Couldn't display "/home/jo/Desktop/MCS-My_Fav_Acc(live)PRV.mpg".

Why can't i view mpeg videoclips?

mpeg

You play the file using what player? The only answer i could give you is you don't have the "codec" to play mpeg file.
