Do to http://www.divx.com/divx/windows/ and download divx, install all the components and your problem will be solved on Windows Media Player.

I had a problem with getting sound and just a black or barely visible image on windows media player.
I know almost nothing about computers but the advice to get codecs didn't make sense as I'd been playing video's previously.
Long story short, I right clicked on a space on the desktop and selected NVIDIA control panel from the box that appeared, step 2 on the panel that opens says how do you make colour adjustments, select with the video player settings and there you go, pictures.
I don't know if all windows has NVIDIA but it worked for me, try it before downloading unneccessary and possibly expensive codec packs.

Windows Media player doesn't support Mpeg files, which is a very common DVD/video file.
you have buy some codec, which IMO is stupid. I'd rather buy a stack of DVDR and just burn the video file to DVD to watch on my DVD player. Just because I can't see it in WMP doesn't mean it aint there. Burn it, then watch it.
Thats what I do.

You need to gey a AVI converter or codec. Windows media donst have a codec for AVI's. The best ive tried is Media Clasic Player

Right click on video, click on "Network" tab. Make sure "Use ports 7000-7007" is checked

Chucko- Mar 23, 2010 04:23PM
I checked use ports 7000-7007 and sure enough it worked. I'm just wondering how it got unchecked? Any ideas?
Dil- Mar 24, 2010 06:01PM
what do you mean "right click on video"? on the actual video clip itself? i did, and theres no "network" tab.
toefunny- Mar 27, 2010 10:12PM
THANK YOU!!

If you go to the "Now Playing" tab on top and click it, you should see "More Options". Once you click that, you can find the Network tab and check the appropriate box.

Well, it didn't work for me. I cannot see any video when opening a stand-alone video file in any media program, Real Player, WMP, Quik Time, NOTHING. Frustrating as hell. Running XP

Go to the settings of your player. There should be a checkbox, something like "Interlace". Uncheck it and try.

I looked for this setting in all of my media players and couldn't find this setting anywhere. Even a "help" search on the word "interlace" pulled up nothing.

Extract The File(Video) To The Divx Movie Folder And Go to the Folder And Play the Movie From There.

Open the link or file in Gom player - you will see the same issue (no display). Now simultaneously play the link or file in windows media player or VLC, it will play in both.

Strange that Gom player fails to play the file, however its codecs help WMP and VLC to play.
Also note that if we select Gom player to use its internal codecs for ASF files, the files wont play. The default settings of selecting the codecs automatically works.

Hope someone more techie can crack this and give us a solution.

I had the same problem and had tried everything. All it took was a simple download of DiVX and I'm fixed. I can watch movies to my hearts content, and it keeps the children quiet. Thank you very much for your assistance.

I found that if you are trying to play an mp4 file Windows Media Player it will not play some formats and it would play movies with no sound(mp4)

I found to answers to 2 problems I had. I am using XP and IE 6.

For the sound I would try www.videolan.org a free program. I could not see vidoes on the net like fancast etc.

Down load a free full version of KLite -codec. It has many codec that video and audio need to play.

http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/KLite-Codec-Pack-Update/1094057842/4

Try it.
