On the eve of the NCAA's I cannot view video's online. I can hear the sound, but nothing on the video. I have all the newest updates, have run various scans and can't seem to find the problem. I have the same problem with Firefox and Explorer. I am trying to watch the video on demand from CBS and I don't know what else to try. I am also having trouble with videos stored on my pc as well. I am running windows media player 11.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!


Thanks!

You could try updating your video driver.

Did you install any new media players or codecs before this problem occurred?

I think it was around the time I update to media player 11. I've tried removing 11 and reverting back to 10 but that didn't work either. As a work around I have been using DivX player to play vids on my pc and it has worked. The problem is with watching vids online, some I can see, some I only get sound. The ncaa are being streamed and I got them to show a bit (but too choppy to watch) by lowering the video acclerator to about 1/2 from the website controls. I have no idea what I'm doing, I guess I figure sooner or later I will stumble on something that will work.

I am running windows media player 11


Doesn't this belong in the "Am I Infected" section?

I just reloaded, I couldn't fix anything that it broke.

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

powerjuce,

Thanks for the VLC link, while it did make my vids on pc playable with media player, still no luck on the streaming video though.

P.S. I no longer have media player 11 on pc, unless you think there are some left over effects?

You probably need to update Flash. That's what they're using. I also know that Joost has got live NCAA video so you might want to try their player.
