OK, I downloaded a Xvid video from the internet the other day. At that time I had the official DivX player+codec. I could play the file in WMP but it was Black and White with a Green Stripe at the top. (It's not the file, a friend has it on her comp). Then I uninstalled DivX player and the file played the same. I then downloaded the Offficial XviD codec. The file played the same. I then Uninstalled everything and installed Tsunami-Filter-Pack. Now the video doesnt play properla, It is just random couloured lines but the audio has played fine on both occasions. Another thing it is not this one Xvid file, it has happened to me for another file too.

Thnxx inadvance

Hi,

Download G-Spot, unzip it, run it, open the file in G-Spot and it will tell you exactly which codec it needs.

Download VLC Media Player from HERE. It doesn't need any codecs installed whatsoever because it uses its own built-in ones. It is by far the best video player I have found. And best of all its FREE!!! :whistling:
