WMP Audio but no Video: Believe me! I've read all the forums on this and other sites and have attempted every sort of solution and even downloaded WMP 10.0 but still the same result: Audio would play but not video. The video screen was either green or black. I have a recently purchased HP pavilion Model a1040n with a Pentium 4 processor, 1 GB ram, 200 GB HD, Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 with up to 128 MB shared video memory.
With all this power, who would have thought therefore to make the following change to WMP: In the "Video" menu drill down to "video acceleration" as follows: Video | Tools | Options | Performance | Video Acceleration
The default video acceleration slide is at "Full" meaning "Full video acceleration (recommended)"
I moved the slide to "none" meaning "No video acceleration. Select if you are experiencing severe playback problems" Once saved in this position, I was able to view video once again!
I went into the same menu and placed the slide in the middle "Some video acceleration. Select if you are experiencing video playback problems". Once saved in this position, I got no video once again.
Regarding codecs: An option in Video | Tools | Options | Player is to "download codecs automatically" on a daily, weekly or monthly schedule. I assume that if the player needs one, WMP will find it and download it.
I just got my Video Card to work at Full speed AGP Great Right!
Than I went to use My Ati HDTV & I found out that I had Sound & No Video & My Other Video Editing had the same problem!
So I did what you said I turned it down & the Editing software worked but ATI HDTV did not so I turned it up & than again & now everything works
