Music theory level 1 file B

Just started out on the theory videos and the file B is not working. All the other files work so I don't think it's my phone. Could anyone go over what to work on for file B or help me get a workable copy? Byronbuchanan58@gmail.com - username.

The filename is "MusicTheory_for_GUITAR_vol.1B.mp4" and it was one of the downloads in Lesson 2. When I attempt to play it, Windows Media Player 12 (Win7 x64) returns: "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file."

I've tried:
re-downloading it
renaming the file with different filename extensions allegedly compatible with WMP
playing it with QuickTime
downloading / playing under Linux

So, far I've been unable to play it.

I've been using VLC media player(videolan) for years now, it's free to use. My stepdad who is quite good with computers told me about it and I haven't used anything else. The reason you are getting that message is because windows media player doesn't support the file type. After you install a program which does support the file you will have to right click the file and then click open with... and then choose the program.

I also use http://www.videolan.org/index.html and have never had a problem playing any of Pebber's videos.

Thanks to both you and MatGeorge for the recommendation on the VLC player. It is a useful alternative to have.

In this case, though, the actual .mP4 file that I received looks roached and doesn't play in anything that I've tried thus far. I brought the file up in a hex editor and the first 307 MB of it are all zeros with seemingly no mp4 header info that I can see.

Thanks.
