I have a friend that has a laptop (bought last year or mabey 2 years ago)
Anyways, he has a Samsung 50' plasma TV and the weirdest thing is happening
he does not see the video on his plasma ( the plasma is hooked up to the laptop via VGA cable)
-we can see video in normal and in full screen mode on his computer, however in windows media player (and 3 other media players) on the plasma, nothing shows up, just a black screen where the video should be
-I thought that it was something to do with the online media player because he states that when he goes to a video streaming site this issue came about
-however I started to get a little suspicious when I visited other sites as well as tried to view a bought DVD on the TV and the issue persisted
-I also tried another user account and the same thing happened
-he said that this happened about a month ago
-I'm thinking that he is missing some kind of codec or something but I'm not too sure if he is
-I tried to play the movie with VLC and same thing...
-and the funny thing is....on the Plasma, everything but the video issue is mirrored excatly on the screen on his computer
-the only website that I can see video on is youtube.
