Windows Media player wont play AVI files

  kundo173 17:07 14 May 2007

I am running Windows Media Player 11 on windows XP home SP2. I tried to view AVI clips from a CD which in the past have run perfectly, now I either get a black screen or the clip refuses to play. I can run the clips on Nero show time (Nero7) with no problem; also they play on Window Movie Maker, what’s gone wrong?

You need to install DivX click here

Or Klite codec pack (free), Standard or Lite are enough for most people's needs - click here

Sorry, Standard or Basic

Divx had no effect at all, Klite standard included media player classic, that would play the video clips but Media player 11 wont, I still can't play the clips directly from the CD, which until a short time ago I could.
