ok issue solved:
all codecs installed
nvidia geforce go 6600
vlc => no video, just sound
wmp => no video, just sound
mplayerClassic => no video, just sound
winamp => video and sound
divx player => video and sound
gspot said something about could not connect output pin to input pin of blabla..
tried everything around codec installing/uninstalling, configuring, new DirectX, new Nvidia driver (graphics) .. etc
also tried winxp sp3 reinstall / rollback to 1st install etc..
also setting hardware accelleration to medium fixed the problem (but its crap leavin it that way!)
switching of direct3d also fixed the problem.. but thats crap too!
this finally solved my problem:
x) uninstall nvidia drivers (had 91.30 and for some time 156.xx drivers installed)
x) install old nvidia forceware drivers: 84.43 are working fine for my gforce go 6600
x) on install overwrite all nvidia files (setup may ask you if you want to leave the “newer” parts or replace them with your old 84.43 parts.. replace them
so it seems like an overlay issue between DirectX and the GraphicsDriver
hope this helps someone
Had same problem just updated divx and it works fine again so check for updates
I think that i have the solution to all of your problems... First of all what type of resolution does your monitor have? i.e. 1024x840 or something or other. Anyway to see video I think that you need a monitor capable of t least 1024x what ever the second # is. I am not so sure on this because I have the same prob and my monitor is only 800x600 max. Place a reply if this helps you or does not help you at all...
Solution for me was same as tapakip’s.
Play a video
Open Catalyst control centre
Change preset from 'custom' to 'home'
thanks a lot the display configuration is where the problem was
Try changing the “video overlay” in your graphics settings to the default settings. This solved my problem of no video playback but with sound.
I also have this problme, and i also played a tv show episode as the last thing the player did..
i have an ATI card and after reading Tapakips entry low and behold it works. thank you
Thanks Tappkin, I have been solving this proplem on my PC couble days after I change video card. Really helpful, thanks!
Thank you. I spent 12 hours trying to figure this out. I’m disgusted.
Wow, credit to hottuna, im running a older machine (800 mhz p3, 320 mb) with a high resolution settings (1280*1024 at 60hz).
I lowered the resolution and voila, the pictures there.
THANKYOU Benoo !!! too easy and it actually worked
I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM AS YOU IMITATION.HELLLLLPPPP!
VLC worked great for playing AVI files. Winamp on the other hand would not play them. Thanks for the advice
I have exactly the same problem. However, I have Vista Premium with Intel Graphics/Toshiba. Any help on how to change the display settings? I have sound, but a black screen for videos, most videos but not all lack visual substance. Lamens terms would be preferred! Any info would be appreciated!
None of these answers are correct, just a waste of time.
However I have found the answer. 1 click of an option in VLC.
go to PREFERENCES / VIDEO
then Uncheck [ ] Accelerated video output
Worked for me, hope it does for you all as well, good luck!
I’ve read all the messages posted so far and im having the same trouble as imitiation at the begining of this forum. I’m definately not computer sabe and i have no idea how to perform all the suggestions to try and make the video appear. Can anyone explain it alittle more easier and quite frankly in a dumb way because i have no clue AT ALL?
I had the same problem No Video just audio. I disabled (unchecked) the Accelerated Video Pick box found on the Tools/Preferences/Video configuration screen. <ctrl> p gets you there also. I a using VLC Media player 0.9.8a Grishenko build.
EVERY VLC PROBLEM CAN BE SOLVED BY RE-INSTALLING WINDOWS
The ISP installed K-lite codec pack on my computer .. then i uninstalled it then installed VLC media player but couldn’t get the video but there was sound so i removed VLC and installed K-lite codec pack and the video playing are fine ... but the solution is that to reinstall windows because VLC media player is extremely complicated for seetings .. and I asl suggest VLC users dont use other player while working on VLC player.. only try to install VLC one and use it only .. because the more the codecs and players and interfaces the VLC get scrambeled
Tapakip, your message solved my problem as well. It seems that the ATI Catalyst Control Center is the root of the problem. I have an ATI Radeon 9600 PRO BTW.
THANK YOU FOR SOLVING THE PROBLEM BLESS YOU TAPAKIP!
