Hey there Night_Shift,

Normally rebooting your PC should rectify that problem :tazz:

You may want to try posting a Highjack This Log >>HERE<< for assessing
(When you post your log file, make sure that you post the entire log).

I need to know more information about the movies properties to be able to work out what is going on. For eg. your prior audio problems could have been due to the lack of an AC-3 Codec BUT... I dont actually know what codecs you have installed or which codecs are related to the movie/movies that you are trying to playback.

I'd like to help but I need more info,

Willow ;)

Heya Night_Shift,

Check this out - Codec Installation Package for Windows Media Player 7.1 or later

And what I meant before is that you could have a virus on your system which is avoiding your codecs working correctly and if you were to post a HJT Log File then you would have to post the entire contents of the file to get a correct answer from the Malware Experts :tazz:

But, in the meantime we will keep trying to find out what your codec conflict is and attempt to fix it,

Willow ;)

Hey,

Didn't you tell me to uninstall all my codec pack, and get them individually?
Well, I don't like windows media player, plus DivX runs faster,but my issue right now is the vidplayback.........am i suppoed to do a hijackthis scan and save the log so the malware experts can take a look?If so, I already have a log, so I think I'll just do it right now i guess........haha :tazz:

Hey Night_Shift,

What Media Player are you actually wanting to use? :tazz:

These are the Media Players that I would recommend for avi's,mpeg's,wmv's etc...:-

Windows Media Player 10 (works well if your codecs are good.Thats why I showed you the codec pack for it,and that one is safe or I wouldnt have recommended it)
Media Player Classic
Lavasoft Winamp(latest version)

For DVD Playback I recommend:-

Cyberlink PowerDVD
Media Player 10(works well if your codecs are good)

I would also recommend that you do not install too many media players as this can create conflicts with codecs aswell.

Check out this site:-

FREE CODECS.com

And take a look at all the different codecs, fixes and tools and read up on what they all do to see which ones you may need(as before... avoid the packs. This will also save you problems especially if you decide that you want to start encoding later on.)While in that web site... dont be afraid to use google to search for more info on the codecs and stuff that you are checking out.

Willow ;)

Ok Night_Shift,

I can see that this is going to be a really good learning curb for you :tazz:
You will need to understand that all media file playback in someway is codec related if you want to make this thing work.

If your codecs are installed incorrectly then will probably find that most if not all of the media players that you are trying to use will not playback your files properly.

And some Malware can be responsible for avoiding correct playback. Did you post the HJT Log as I mentioned above?

I know that I told you not to install codec packs before, but since you are having so many problems understanding them... Make sure that you only ever have one codec pack installed at a time (cause they can conflicts).

Go to this page and click on Download and install that pack. Just until you can get a better understanding on codecs.

And the Media Player that works best with those codecs is Media Player Classic.(I've found this to be more stable than Windows Media Player most of the time)
To get it go >>HERE<<

Goodluck ;)

Willow ;)
