major problem here. I reinstalled my system a day ago, now XP pro with SP2. Games and music run fine, but not a single videofile works.
Weither its avi, mpg, wmv, coded with divx, xvid, etc, it doesnt work.
If i try to play a moviefile, the system ressources increase to 100% while the player (used multiple ones) tries to load the file. I can then barely manually quit the player (using the task manager) before the system stops.
I tried using no codecs, some codecs, all codecs, nothing helps.
When using the "mini preview" folder layout, the start-screen of my movies is even shown, but thats about it. When trying to start them, the player loads, ressources increase and thats it.
As mentioned, game intros work fine.
I cant imagine what could be the problem...a day ago everything worked using the same hardware layout.
