Video playback problem
« on: January 12, 2007, 09:05:24 AM »
Hi there,

BAsically I have a problem playing back the majority of my video files. All my audio tracks are fine and a minority of video tracks play but most just cause winamp / wmp / mpc to crash. This was a spontaneous problem. Anyone know what this is about? Or know a way around it?

Have reinstalled all ofthe above programmes and the codecs too (not that I thought it would mke any difference). Virus scan done.

Using Windows XP.
Processor      Pentium 4

Processor speed      3200 MHz
Amt of RAM      256 MB (max 2048 MB)

RAM type      DDR2 SDRAM
Motherboard chipset      Intel 915GV chipset
Graphics card      Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900

Amt of video RAM      up to 128MB shared
Sound card      Blaster Audigy

Speakers      2 stereo speakers
Hard drive      80 GB (7200 rpm)

Interface      SATA

Other drives included      DVD ROM

WOuld really appreciate some help here. Im stranded without any hope of watching my precious videos.

Have you tried updating your sound card drivers and video drivers?
What happens when you try to play them back, do you get an error message?
What happened before this started?
What format of video files play and don't play?
What protection do you have, other than AV?  What is your AV?
What OS is this?
