Recently started having problems with some videos (For around a month now). PC games that load and show a video on boot, now only provide sound, games run fine, just no videos, also some video screensavers are now sound only, including one I use at work with no problem, and brought home. Existing mpegs/wmv videos run OK through WMP, can't find any other issues on my pc. I have XP Pro SP2, AVG, ZA Pro, Spybot, Adaware, Ccleaner, non of which have thrown up any issues and are run regularly. I know I can do a system restore, but I prefer to see if I can nail and understand the issue before resorting to that. Am I missing something dumb, folks? Thanks
Thanks Gandalf, but no joy. Took me a while 'cause router decided to play up and needed reboot. I'm already at 32 bit colour (Hope I'm not being thick, I assume that's desktop>properties>settings>colour quality), d/loaded k-lite, installed, no difference I'm afraid.
Errr, I was half way through typing that I have Power DVD but use WMP, when I thought, how do I know?? I remember having had an issue previously where things wouldn't run through PDVD unless running simultaneously through WMP, or something like that, until I lowered the performance acceleration settings, and that issue went away. But WMP seems fine with mpegs and wmv files, only certain videos seem to be affected.
