I have Windows XP service pack 2. I have Windows Media Player 11, I can play a dvd film ok, I can play MP3 tracks ok, but I have a short video clip which is in an MPEG movie.

The problem I have is that when I play this short video clip I get the picture playing at a faster than normal playback speed and also there is no sound, the occassional sound of a high pitched screech/squeak is the only sound I get. Can anyone help me with this problem, thanks.

Had similar problem. fixed with K-Lite codecs. Only remaining problem is occasional loss of picture when cursor moved.
