the video plays in all players (WMP, WMP classic, and DIVX PLAYER) with all colors messed up. its like boxes in the screen and the sound jumps like if its a scratched cd. i had reinstall xp like 7 times and tried like 20 codecs and nothing happens. i wish i could attach a screen shot... please need big help!! i have lots of family videos here, they used to play fine but for some reason this started to happen. furthermore: i have a video saved on a cd, it happened in the hd, i deleted it and after copying back again, is perfect!!! ANY IDEAS????????? reply

Possibly the files have become corrupt..

Seems like that’s the issue here..

If not your codec has several issues.

Can you run one of the videos through gspot codec tool and tell me the results?

If you want instant message me with yakuzashunter@yahoo.com

Also, try using the video options on the bottom left of the program.

It should help in rendering the video.

Gspot

If the video plays, then it’s working. Obviously. reply

Well, to see if it’s the codecs, lets try something.

Download VLC player (Link below) as it uses internal codecs only. If it works, then it’s a codec issue. If it doesn’t it’s video related.

I personally, use KM PLayer, it uses internal codecs and external codecs, but the external codecs have to be specified by the user.

It’s fully customizable.

Link for Beta:

I’m using the beta, but will be switching to the alpha... reply
