I'm running windows xp home. I have windows media player 11, classic and winamp all installed. In every instance i cannot view video but can hear the audio. I am mainly talking about avi's (or winamp media files as they are list as) with all 3 programs. I'm not sure what I did to cause this but i used to watch/hear them all.

I gave up on windows media player 11 and winodws xp, it messed up too many old applications that worked well with xp, media player 10 seemed to fix xp the best for some files, I use media player classic and ffdshow as the directshow codec package.

All these codecs are an accident waiting to happen, I would rather have the majority working well and not worry about non-standard formats and some off the wall files. Mkv's being the exception, they are the wave of the future.


No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

I would recommend you to use VLC for viewing videos as it supports most file formats and does not cause much problems.
If you still want to media player 11 i would recommend you to install video codecs again. Download them fron the net and install.
