Lost My Machine Gun Clips
self ^ | 11-8-04

Posted on 11/08/2004 1:39:21 AM PST by LouAvul

I downloaded some machine gun video clips. My OS is windows XP for home and I use Windows Media Player. I thought since I viewed them on the Windows Media Player that I would be able to view them again.

Only now I can't find them. I know they're in my computer somewhere. Any suggestions?

First, open windows media player and look under "File" or "Play" - the most recent files you've played might still be listed there.

Plan B: Open windows media player and look in the "Media library".

Plan C: Go to start/ search / For files or folders. You can click on "advanced" and only search for windows media files. If they're on your computer you should be able to find them that way.

I tried each plan. It's not showing any of them.

mmmm. you may have a problem. that's a long time ago and unless you saved it, it's probably gone. most internet files stick around for only 20 days (that's the default).
but just so you know:
on your browser, click on tools then internet options.
on the middle of the popup right you'll see "temporary internet files"
Click on settings. You'll see "Temporary internet files folder"
This is where things you've browsed go to die.
If you click on view files (middle lower) you'll see your list.

They're gone champ. Were they from the internet? If so, go to the site below and search for the clips. Make sure that you have the all three of the boxes (photos, graphics, buttons/banners) checked.

Lou, sorry, I gave you the wrong page if you're going to search for the clips on the net. The previous page was for images. Here's the one for videos:

If you installed another viewer/player, it might have set file associations, which if anything changes the appearance of the file's icon.

Did you remember the headspace gauge and the timing tool?

Thanx for the link. I viewed the vids.

Let me make sure I understand how this works. I download a video. The video is stored someplace on my computer in my Windows Media files. Yet I can't find them when I open the Windows Media Player. Curious.

Make sure you RIGHT CLIK, and TELL your Browser WHERE To save the file!

Pick something EASY like "My Documents" or C:\

You can use FILE SEARCH to find them too...

Lou, I thought of one more last ditch way that you might be able to retrieve your clips.

Go to Start / Documents

The most recent files that you've opened (perhaps even your clips) will be listed there.
