Windows Media Player 10/No Video Playing

by Surferbob644 / February 9, 2005 3:52 PM PST

All of a sudden my WMP10 isn't playing any video formats except those direct from my DVD drive. My other media players play fine. Actually if I play something on RealPlayer sometimes it'll then play on WMP. I have Service Pack 2. I downloaded the codec pack from Microsoft, no such luck. I ran several virus scan plus the latest removal tool from Microsoft, still no luck. I would appreciate any help. Happy Valentine's Day! SB644

I had trouble with version 10 also, I uninstalled it and went back to version 9 and I haven't had any more trouble.
