hello! i am have a problem playing .avi video files i have downloaded. i’ve downloaded quite a few movies and tv shows in the past, but lately everytime i play a recently completed file (in both winamp and windows media player) only the sound can be heard, the screen is blank and an error message pops up from windows saying that the program needs to shutdown... i don’t know if this is a problem with my system or with the codecs... hope someone can help!

thanks

hey all,

apparently it is a codec problem... so what you have to do is:

1) delete all the codec already on your computer
2) google: ffdshow
3) download it... unzip the file and the problem should be fixed!

take care reply

hi, have a file which can be played in divx player but not divx subtitle displayer. Is there a codec I missed out? reply

Feedback


I am confused, I have many avi files but some of them bounce...as in the picture looks like it is trying to run ahead then back but the sound is perfect...

So watching the avi you get a large headache...and flickering eyes...lol

Anyone come across this problem? reply

Greetings from Trinidad

I had the same problem as Viv. I followed her advice re " it is a codec problem..." - downloaded ffdshow and installed (did not bother to remove any previous version of any codec though) - and VOILA - it worked. Thanks much Viv

just go to this page: http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow
click download ffdshow, then click download on either file (2002 or 2004 both should work, i chose the 2002). next, click on either the zip or exe (i chose the exe). run the install exe, let it do its thing and everything should be fixed; it was for me at least. reply

Had similar problem in WMP 10 & 11.

Saw possible solution posted elsewhere- Using ATI video?? If you have Catalyst Control Centre (CCC)installed- remove it and just use the card driver.

It affected my Nero as well with sound and no video. All fixed with removal of CCC. reply
