First, when trying to view live feed from a website, the color is skewed from natural colors (the bald eagle i'm trying to see is bright red, orange and yellow surrounded by a green nest...). I have seen this phenomena on other internet videos (tried to preview some video for the online game, Everquest II), but thought it was a problem with the site.
Secondly, I cannot get dvd's to play anymore. The error message I get from Windows Media player says I need to have a decoder, something that I thought I had before. I used to have Intervideo WinDVD on my computer also, but about 6 months ago the hard drive had a melt down. I got all the items restored from the original hard drive, but they are not organized on the new one in quite the same way, and I don't know how to find it.
Currently I am able to play the videos that were already stored on my computer, perhaps because they are a different type of file than dvd's. Those files were among the ones lost when my hard drive melted before, so I think Intervideo (and the decoder it contains) should be recoverable also, if I only knew where to look/what to do.
Thanks for any help/suggestions!
