i've got video problems, perhaps somebody here could help me ...
when Iím trying to play a video (no matter what program i am using) the whole system stops for 10 seconds. I just can move the mouse pointer, but the system doesnít react to anything else. after that the file is played, but only the sound. when I close the program the system stops again for some seconds.
Iíve already tried following:
I went to http://forums.afterd..._view.cfm/48608 and followed every single step of preatorís advice. I used this: http://forums.afterd..._view.cfm/81570 to delete all the .dll, .ax, and .drv codec drivers I found.
following another advice, I played around in the registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32, disabling some of the vidc.* entries and trying different configurations.
sometimes, after working on the problem for an hour, everything seems to be fine again and my videos are played correctly. but I donít know why. after going to standby or switching off the computer - or perhaps just after waiting some time (without changing anything concerning the system) - the same problem, as described above, occurs.
Iíam using windows xp, with all service packs and updates installed. all necessary codecs are installed (because I followed http://forums.afterd...view.cfm/48608). I guess, I messed around by installing too much codecs. is there a possibility to set the whole windows video thing back to default?
thanks for any advice!
