Audio but no Video

Hello there.

Recently my PC has been unable to play any video images. Regardless of whether the clip is using media player, real, quick time or anything else, when the clip plays there is audio but no video.

The strange thing is that the first frame of the clip is always viewable (e.g when trying to play back a video I have recorded), but as soon as I click ‘play’ the screen goes black. The clip clearly does play, as there is audio.

This is now a real pain, as it means I can’t watch any web footage (BBC news etc.), or do any video editing (I’ve got Canopus Let’s Edit installed). I've had the problem a few months now, but it's only now become a major issue as I want to start doing some video editing again.

I've tried changing the 'performance' options in WMP to 'some video acceleration', which does now allow some things to play in WMP, but this hasn't helped anything else.

Hope this makes sense. Any ideas what my problem might be? Many thanks.

Dave

Thanks. OK, I've now downloaded and run the DivX 'Play Bundle', but still nothing. Anything else I need to do?
