How To Play Web Media (.webm) Files

Postby Grav!ty » Sun Aug 07, 2011 1:44 pm

There's a very good guide HERE

Following that guide, I downloaded WebM/VP8 DirectShow Filters, extracted the .zip file to a filter and then ran the executable, install_webmdshow.exe

Next I downloaded Xiph.org OGG Open Codecs, ran the executable opencodecs_0.85.17777.exe and then went to the .webm video file I had downloaded earlier, right clicked it, selected "Play with", made sure that "Always open with..." was checked and clicked OK.

This is a new file format to me and nothing I had installed would play it. After following the above guide I had no problem playing .webm videos in my player of choice...Real Player.

I believe that VLC Media Player will auto play them.
