For instance WMP doesn't play DIVX files until we install ... the DIVX codec. Your post notes the usual but left out a small detail.
VLCPLAYER will play most without having to install codecs.
Good Afternoon All.
I am hoping someone can help me. Bit of a novice on PC's. I have just bought a Compaq Evo P4 2.6Ghz, 750mb Ram, GeForce 6200 with 256Mb AGP.
I am running win2000 Pro and a friend said to update to WMP 9.0 which I did during the whole update thing.
The problem. I cannot successfully play any video files. I get the audio perfectly but no picture. I receive no error messages. I have re-installed WMP 9 and have added selected codecs from authorised sources. This problem afects all the players on the machine such as power DVD and Real Player. Have tried the trusty WMP 6.4 and have the same problem.
Have tried all the usual things with the video card diagnostics and Dx 9.0c. Nothing works.
Any ideas guys? - hopefully it's the author!
Thanks in advance,
