I have downloading some movie files in a few formats, mpeg,divx, avi etc and im having a bit of a problem playing them back. If im downloading something say a music video or something in kazaa i can open it in AVI preview and it will play correctly. However, as some of the files progress in downloading, when i open them in AVI preview they display different sections of the picture in different tints. Even at the beginning of the file where it was previously ok. Also, when i finish downloading them and try to open them in any player like real1 or WMP they dont open and an error window opens telling me an error occured when it tired to play the file. How can i fix this?
Yes, i have downloaded the divx and xvid codecs, including the rm ones and the graphics card driver. The problem about the AVI preview not getting the colours right usually works now but the problem of the players not playing the downlaoded files still persists.
It happens on mpeg files aswell as avi movies so im still stuck on how to get them to play if they played in AVI preview when they were downloading.
Don't know if this is relevent but I found that having an HP printer plugged into a USB port affected video playback, even when it was switched off. Solution was to unplug the printer, except when it was in use of course.
