Question ID: 767860
I have been using a torrent (eg. bit torrent) site to download movie
files. I have  gotten a few of them and some work. However, some of
the files I am unable to play  with the media players that I have.
This shouldn't be because the files don't seem that unusual. both
files that I am having trouble with are m-peg layer-3. My Windows
media player and real player and quicktime just play the audio when I
try to open them with them. I can only hear audio.

So .. now you have the background. 

What media player to I have to use to play these kind of files? and/or
what process do I have to go through to get these files to work

This is all you need. Install this and it installs the codecs to play
within your Windows media player
