i noticed yesterday that when i played some video files there was no picture. I tried play some that i knew worked and the same happened to them, the picture went, but the sound is still there.
what gone wrong? i've reinstalled my media players and drivers and codecs. nothing. However, i thought i'd check to see if they worked in adobe premiere and they did. and after i'd closed down premiere the files worked again. So whats going on? i assume some codecs of drivers aren't loading propperly and when i open premiere the codec/drivers are forced to load up?
quicktime player to play a qt file. it came up with an error saying that the file may not play propperly becuase the compressor could not be found. sure enought the problem was the same as the other media players.
So is there some folder in windows that i can locate the compressors and try to fix the problem?
