No video picture in Windows Media Player

  Windsor 10:42 26 Feb 2011

I have recently reinstalled Windows XP and the WMP 11 will not show the pictures and but have sound.
I think it is probably a missing driver. But how do I get it?

Try thsi first

Tools > Options > Performance Tab and click on "Restore Defaults"

What is the file extension? Files other than .wmv will pclick here need a codec. Klite basic will probably sort if so.

Thanks Bremner but still no good. Any other ideas?

Thanks Zeppelyn but your response is corrupt. The site you directed me to is no longer there!
Any other suggestions?

All is now well. Thanks to all.

How did you fix it

I have lost full screen pictures in BBC iplayer and videos.
How can I recover them?

I have tried the options already suggested but to no avail

I have Windows XP with WMP11 installed - all newly installed.
If I run a video in WMP11 I don't get any picture - only visualisations.
How can I correct this please?

I still can't get any pictures in WMP11.
I have downloaded anything that looks remotely likely to cure it but to avail.

This is driving me up the wall!

Can anyone help PLEASE
