Trouble playing video files

  sorceror7374 21:26 10 May 2007

I have some video files that I can't get to run properly. The audio will play, however, the video won't play and this same problem occurs with a number of different media players.
The video files are mpeg-4 720p h264 files and despite my searching, I can't seem to obtain a clear answer as to why they won't play.
I'm running an AMD Athlon XP at 2.2GHZ using Windows XP Pro including an ATI Radeon X800 graphics card.
Any ideas on this one?
