Thread: video playback errors!

  1. #1

    Default video playback errors!


    When I play certain video files back on WMP, or any other video playback software, I get these huge colored blocks that move about the screen. I have no idea what they are.... But it only happens with certain video files.

    BUT, if I save that certain video to CD, and play them on another computer, they play fine.

    What could this be? Could my monitor need setting changes to it?

    Ok.. I'll take a swing at this one.

    I think you need to update your windows media player. It sounds like you have an older codec installed. That psychedelic-blocks-on-a-rampage is a sure sign the installed codec isn't compatible with the compression used on the video.

    Oooh, codec packs aren't the greatest IMHO. They tend to install more than what's needed... which proves a pain to then uninstall if the need arises!
