Hi Jeff,
Thanks. As you said,  earlier, I was trying to run the decoder on the file saved from the follow tcp stream.  Now i'm able to  run the decoder.

The file you saved from "follow tcp stream" is the contents of the TCP
stream, not the packets that were used to create said stream. If it was
a TCP stream used by a web server, for example, you'd be better off
viewing it with some kind of ASCII viewer (like vi or Notepad).
