When you attempt to play an Indeo Video Format (IVF) file in Windows Media Player, the file may not be played and you may receive the following error message:
This behavior can occur if you try to play the IVF file by using a Uniform Resource Locator (URL).

- Right-click the link to the IVF file, and then click Save Target As.
- Specify the location where you want to save the file.
- Double-click the file on your hard disk to play it.
