Whenever I try to play a video using Windows Media Player all i get is a black screen and no sound. Also, if i go to the "Video Acceleration" section under performance in options in Windows Media Player and change that to halfway, the video will play, but sometimes it will be choppy (and im not sure but i think it cuts down on the quality). Also, Quicktime player works fine. I do not think it is my videocard because i just got a new one a Radeon 9600. Please help....Thanks.

Make sure that you have the latest drivers from ATI (you can get them from their website, catalyst drivers 6.2). Make sure that you have the Dirext X 9.0c installed. Read the notes when installing these latest drivers, as you'll need .net framework and service pack 2 if your running on windows XP.

Cards can be tricky, specially with video, you may need to set your acceleration up to where it shows the video and leave it there.

Hope it helps!

Not just reinstall the drivers, but make sure that you have the latest from the manufacturer. A lot of times they'll make just minor upgrades to their drivers that'll fix issues that they've found, so if you're using the drivers that came on the disc when you bought the card, you could be WAY out dated. Example.....I bought an nVidia card. The drivers on the disc were version 54.something. The latest drivers from nvidia were like 84.something. See, that's a huge diference in the drivers.

I downloaded the newest drivers that came out 3 days ago and still does not work on full video acceleration. Why would it work on quicktime and not on windows media player? Does quicktime not have a video acceleration feature?
