Here's the problem. I had to reinstall windows (W2k Pro) on my home computer (non-VT) and I put WMP9 in after the install. It seems to play some files OK, but other (seemingly mpegs) won't play. I get the audio, but no video. In the playlist bar, it says "playlist1", regardless of what file is loaded.

I'm stumped..... any ideas ? :confused:

Jim maybe you need to install an mpeg codec. Just a guess.

Seconded; I don't think Windows comes with MPEG codecs preinstalled; if you install any sort of software DVD player, then all media player type programs should be able to use those codecs afterwards.

Then again I know you to be quite an expert, so maybe this is something way beyond my advice. :p
