no AVI video showing in either realplaer or media

  gohicks 15:32 19 Apr 2008

I cannot see the video component of any AVI video files when I use either real player or media player. The files can be seen if I play them thro pinnacle studio 10. The same applies to wmv and mpg files. I did not have this problem a week ago. Has anyone any idea how I can fix this?

i would like to suggest you try JetAudio basic - it is freeware but has large support of many file formats. I have used it for years, also it will display better error messages which can help you identify your problem.

If you dont wish to try that have you tried updating your codecs?

Simmo09, thanks for your response. I have updated the codecs and installed JetAudio Basic. The symptoms remain. and Jetaudio also shows no video.

MCE2K5, thanks for your suggestion but it is a failure to play plain basic avi or mpeg files. As I said the players had no problems last week.
