Ok so I have these two videos that are both MP4s, which I normally have no problem playing, that when I play on Windows Media Player the sound plays but the video will just be black screen. I've tried playing them on the DIVX player but it will be pieces of the video and the audio will be skippy. if anyone knows how I can make these videos work that I would really appreciate it. Thank you for your time.

VLC is the Swiss army knife of video players. It will play anything.

I just tried VLC now, upon your suggestion, and it was only a little better than DIVX, still a choppy and pixelated(?) video.

It could be the video quality is inferior.

I don't know if this fact will help at all but looking closer at the details the only real difference I've notice is that the bitrates and data rate seem to be a bit higher than other videos.
