    Default I'm having problems with a video...

    Okay..I have a movie on my computer and it's in avi format
    I've dowloaded and redownloaded it like 3 times, from different sites, so I know it's not corrupted or anything (er..I think) Also, no one else who's downloaded it has had any problems with the file

    but anyways, I tried to open it with both Real Player and WMP. But everytime, it doesn't work and i just get a green screen. There's no sound or anything, and it doesn't even play. It just opens up the player with the green.
    Am I missing something? like a codec or whatever? or does that movie just totally hate me...

    If you know how to fix it and you actually tell me
    Thank you!!!

    What video is it?

    Reinstall your codecs and clean your registry.
    If that still fails, it could be your video drivers that are causing an overlay issue. Try disabling hardware video acceleration and try again.

    I get this extremely dark purple screen if I try to open certian files in Full Screen when I have RainMeter running. Try disableing any extra programs you got running too (especially widgets).

    it's the drama 'Summer Snow'

    ooh..well I have a bunch of widgets on my laptop, so that might be the case on there
    but I've also tried on my desktop computer that has no widgets, and I still get the same problem

    so I'll try reinstalling my codecs and all that and reply back here if it works

    thanks!

    Shouldn't the place you downloaded it from tell you how to play it?

    Use a program called VLC player, 9 times out of 10, that'll fix your problem, either that or your codecs need updateing.

    Uh I just remembered.. VirtualDub also does a good thing if anything else fails (provided you've installed the necessary codecs). For me, ffdshow is sufficient for most stuff... But I usually installed a seperate codec for DivX.

    Anyways, try VirtualDub as well, it's free to download anyway. I know it's actually some type of video editing program, but its ability to actually parse frames in, should I say, "RAW" mode (?), can make things handy if all else fails... It might also be able to fix whatever problems the video might have.

    Ah well, good luck with that ~
