AVI files play no picture, but with sound

N

#1
I do not know what has happened but when I try to play an AVI file in
windows media player I get sound but no picture. The first time I noticed
this is when I went to a BBC (UK website) and tried to watch an online
program. The program started and I heard sound,... but there was no picture.

When I tried to open a local file the same thing happened. If I open the
file in the new (BETA) real player it (the file) plays alright.

I have got the latest divx player installed (6.7).

I wondered if anyone could help me out with this problem>

WMP probably can't find the correct codec. Besides the media title in the
right frame of WMP there should be a small, red icon. Click it, and follow
the instructions to download the right codec.

I've seen this problem several times with Xvid, it could be what you're
missing.

Thanks for the reply Charlie, but it did not sort out my problem.

I did have Xvid (older version 1.1.2).

There is nothing there in media player to tell me that I need codec's.

I did have all the codec's on my system before and they played alright?

Somebody in this ng recommended a tool called Gspot in a similar discussion
a few days ago. You may be able to find out what the file uses by running
this tool (I've tested it briefly myself, and it seems to work ok):
http://www.headbands.com/gspot/

And here's another tool that will help you find out what's already installed
on your machine:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/installed_codec.html

A good place to start looking for downloads:
http://www.wmplugins.com/

Oh, and one more thing. If viewing the files you're talking about worked
fine previously on your computer, you should try to do a system restore
before you dig further into the tips in my previous post.

Actually there is a place to tell you if you need codecs...

Right-click on the player's playlist on the partially failing track and
click Error Details. Then click Web Help. That should identify any missing
codec (John/I did this part) and then offer to take you to wmplugins where
you can probably find the codec (Kevin L did most of that).

Automating this process would kind of be dangerous since a lot of codecs are
dodgy. =\

Zach Thanks for your reply, but unfortunately there is no error details.

I think media player has gone wrong.

Having both XVID and DIVX isn't ideal...

What's the URL to a AVI video on the BBC UK web site? I didn't see any...

On one of the files I wont to play I used gspot and there seems to be a
problem with WMV2 WMP v8 Microsoft.

Is there anyway to sort this out?

Ah, that's not AVI, that's WMV, as you noted.

Do local WMV files work?
Is ffdshow.ax on this system?

Can you play

I wondered if you could tell me where "ffdshow.ax" should be.

Zach that is one of the files I was trying to play. Most of the other files
are AVI files.
I have a feeling that there is a problem with media player.
I would restore my system, but I can not as I have the restore turned off (I
am not very happy once when using the restore and as such I have turned it
off).

ffdshow.ax is a third party filter that can override standard settings, not
necesssarily for the best.

The AVI issue confuses this. What is your specific error from what specific
AVIs there?

To clarify, did the ASX I pointed you to work when directly opened from
WMP's Open URL option?
Do local WMV files still play correctly?

System restore is a good feature. =\

Try downloading an installing this codec pack: Vista Codec Package Homepage

Some people may say that you shouldn't us codec "packs", but I've been using this one for almost a year now and have had no issues. It only contains what is absolutely necessary. It also comes in a x64 version (which is what I'm using)

Thanks for your reply dzomlija, but I now have a feeling that there is a
problem with media player. I have all the codecs that should be needed to
play the files that I want playing. The files I want to play used to play
alright before. I think that when my computer crashed on me and I used
chkdsk to check c: something went wrong with media player.

What I need to find out now is there a way of repairing media player.

Thanks again.

Try this:

  1. Open an Elevated Command Prompt ("Start"->"All Programs"->"Accessories"->"Command Prompt", Right-click, "Run As Administrator"
  2. In Command Prompt, type SFC /scannow
  3. If there are any problems with Media Player, then the System File Checker will show it
You never mentioned which version of Vista you are using? Vista x86 (32 Bit) or Vista x64? If you're using Vista x64, and the 64-Bit WMP, then you may experience these sysmptoms if you only have 32-Bit codecs installed.

You can check which WMP is being used by opening it, then by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ESC to open Task Manager. Go to Process in the Task Manager. if WMPLAYER.EXE is listed with "* 32", then you are using the 32-Bit version. If not, then its the 64-Bit version.
