Ok, I have tried to search for an answer to this problem. But it is very difficult to search for...not quite how to search for this one so I decided to ask in a post. I have a strange problem with some video files in Windows Media player 11 (Vista 64 OS). I recently reformatted my computer and put all my media back on my drives. All of my files used to work perfectly fine. Now, there are a select number of videos that appear to have broken audio. When I click on them to play them, it says acquiring codec, then plays the video with no audio after the codec is acquired. The odd part is two things. For one, I downloaded the same exact codecs as last time. For two, the files work sometime...they dont search for codecs...they just work. But the vast majority of the time they do not play audio with the video...and it is always the same files. Any ideas?

Thanks a lot for any responses.

Have you tried them in another media player?
If its just a problem with WMP11 then try media player classic in the same installation folder.
