Default 3W Player

What the heck is this? The file says that I need this 3w player to be able to watch this movie. Any of you have experience with this type of player?

It's suppose to be a movie file with the extension of .avi

When I tried to play it, a message in Media Player says, "You must use the free 3w Player to view the content", or something similar.

It's from a movie I downloaded, lol. Man, that sucks though. The movie is, "Knocked Up". I want to see it because I hear it's pretty funny. I guess I'll get it elsewhere....

Where are you getting this movie from? Torrenting is better.

Even through torrents, I get that 3w player warning on ocassions. It's usually associated with aXXo files.

you don't want to use that thing... if you torrent, look for some reviews first before you D/L it. and if it says it's aXXo, and asks for that thing, then it's not an aXXo file... aXXo files will not ask you to D/L or run anything but the file you are getting.

That's what I figured because usually aXXo are very reliable files that uses a standard media player to play. So I was shocked when it began to ask me this recently.

check out the reviews before you D/L it... they usually will tell you if it's fake or not.
