Thread: Preview screen not showing

  1. #1

    Default Preview screen not showing

    Hi,
    When I use adobe premier and windows movie maker, the preview screen does not work. It's just loads of lines, mostly green (the sort you used to get when loading up a spectrum). Does anybody have any clue how to correct this?

    Also, any idea why when I try to put an avi file into a gif animator, it keeps giving me a message saying there is an error with the clip?

    Thanks a lot for your time.

    Sounds like a codec issue. What's the source of the video?

    I use media player. I have always had problems with it, but sherlock never shows codec errors. I've not been able to view some files on media player for over a year and I've never got to the bottom of the problem

    Sounds more and more like a codec issue to me. Uninstall as much as you can, then only load the ones you need.

    Start
    Settings
    Control panel
    Add remove programs

    Should be listed in there otherwise look in the programs list and uninstall it that way maybe there’s another way not sure just guessing

    Thanks for your help so far. I've also notced that AVI files dont play and my computer freezes when I try to open them.

    How do I know which codecs to delete? Or can I delete them all?
