distored video someitmes when playing video files

Q: distored video someitmes when playing video files

This only happens to video that has to buffer before playing. It doesnt happen to video that just stream directly.

The image is distorded in weird colors, sort of looks like an infared diagram, where the outlines of the video are visible but colors all distorted. Again this only happens to video that is buffered first. I believe it is only on mpeg buffered video files.

video card has latest drivers and is radeon 9550

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A:help on playing wmv video files

Hiya

Is this with all WMV files, or just some in particualr? Its supposed to be WMP that can play them. What happens when you open WMP and go to File | Open, and click on the wmv?

Also, when you doubleclick the actual file, does it come up with Select a Program?

Hi there, I recently updated my PC and I am having a problem with video files. DVDs do not play when opened up in Windows Media Player (version 11), and Power DVD. The programs open and then crash to the desktop. AVI movie files in Media Player play with sound only, no picture, and they cause Power DVD and Quicktime to freeze.

I am using XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600), Intel Dual Core 2160 @ 1.8 Ghz (2 CPUs), 2046Mb RAM, and a GeForce 8600 GT.

Games work absolutely fine, but no video files.
Anyone have any ideas why??

I'm having a kind of strange problem with certain video files. For example, I downloaded an 80mb movie off of Ares (Nothing illegal or any piracy) and when I open the file it says there are is only 24 seconds of play time, which obviously is not true. First of all, it's 80mb, and there is no way. If I move the track along so that it changes to what would be about 15 seconds later (If it were really only 24 seconds long) suddenly it is at a completely different scene which is actually more like 15 minutes further in. I can change it to different points like this, but once you do the track will keep going until it hits the 24 seconds and it stops. For whatever reason it's like the rest of the movie is hidden somewhere. I have tried opening it in Winamp, Windows Media Player, and DivX, all to the same result. And this has happened on other video files before as well, it's not just this one. Is there any way I can correct this problem?

A:No audio when playing video files

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Go into your device manager, and check to see if there are any yellow exclamation or question marks next to your audio devices.

You could also try reinstalling the drivers for your sound device.

If you`ve got onboard sound then you will need to go to your mobo manufacturers website, and download the latest drivers from there.

If on the other hand, you`ve got a seperate soundcard, then go to the soundcard manufacturers website, and download the drivers from there.

I have been running ATI All-In-Wonder 9000 Pro for about 2 months with no problems, but I recently installed a Santa Cruz sound card, and various ATI functions have stopped working acoustically. First, the packaged ATI File Player (for avi, dvx, mpeg) outputs video but no audio. And the TV-In-Demand function (records TV-out to the harddrive) also lacks sound play. But the regular TV viewer and the DVD Player play sound just fine, and playing the sound works when playing the same avi, mpg, files on WinDVD some of the time. Can anyone help? I'm not a real tech expert, so any help would be appreciated.

Have you tried re-installing your Catalyst drivers and software to see if they can pick up your new sound card? Is the old sound card out of Device Manager? Sounds like some type of conflict.

Questions:

I just want to make sure I have all the codec's downloaded that will help me be able to watch ANY type of video file I may come across. I watch a lot of videos on my computer, in fact, I have stopped using my TV altogether but I want to make sure I have all I might possibly need.

Also I need to know how to keep them updated. Is there a free program out there that will do this for me so that I don't have to keep track of it manually myself?

I heard downloading a bunch of "Codec Packs" can sometimes NOT be good b/c they don't always have the latest versions of EACH codec in their packages. If this is the case what "Codec Packs" should I download and what other codec's should I download separately, as in NOT in a package?

What is the recommended way to go about this? For FREE of course

Thank you ahead of time for anyone who can help me with this!
 

A:What Are The Codec's I Should DEFINITELY Have For Playing A Lot Of Video Files?

I would recommend having a good group of players installed, rather than just codecs. I have the following players installed:

Windows Media Player
iTunes / Quicktime,
VLC Player
RealPlayer
Flash Player
Shockwave Player

There are other players you could try
DivX Player
Sky Player

This should cover about 99% of videos. If you come across a video thats not covered then you can download the latest codec. My fav download site is http://www.filehippo.com.

Okay, so today I was trying to watch an avi file that I have and when I went to play it using VLC Media Player,it gave me the message, "VLC Media Player just crashed. Do you want to send a bug report to the development team?" I clicked no and VLC exited out. I then tried to play the avi in Windows Media Player and got an error message saying that the file could not be played and I also got the same message trying to play the file using Winamp.

Seeing that avi files didn't work, I also tried playing mpgs and wmvs, to no avail. I already had the Vista Codec pack installed, but I downloaded and installed the XP Codec pack to see if that helped anything, but it didn't. I then downloaded and installed k-lite codec pack, but that didn't help either.

I've never had trouble playing my video files before, but I hadn't played any of them for quite a while until today, and numerous changes have been made to the program files and other documents and such, so I don't know if any of those changes have affected my computer's ability to play my video files.

Anyway, it is now 1:00 in the morning for me, and I am at my wit's end. If any of you could please try and help me with this problem, I would be very grateful, because I have no idea where to go from here.

In the beginning, I had no problems with Win 7 build 7000. I could play whatever video file I wanted and it would work perfectly. Since checking out the various builds after 7000, right up to the latest RC build 7100, I have nothing but problems when playing video files. No matter which player I use, be it WMP, KMPlayer, VLC or Media Player Classic, I get a BSOD after trying to open a video file, including DVD.

I have just recently reinstalled my computer and whenever i want to watch any MPEG or ASF files (I haven't tried AVI) I have some major annoyances!

I've tried these files on a number of players including Windows Media Player, Real One Player and Quicktime player (for the MPEG). I get the same annoyances each time.

With the ASF files I get a really blocky picture but no choppyness.

With the MPEG files I get really choppy video footage but the audio is fine. I think I know why this happens, but I don't know how to solve the problem. The picture is also very blocky. When I used to watch anything on Windows Media Player, I would find that i would get a blocky picture in full screen but after a couple of seconds it would then turn into a smooth picture and then it would run smoothly. I don't know if i need to download anything to get back to the smooth picture...

So if anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated because the only way to get smooth full-screen video at the moment is to turn "Full Screen Mode Switch" on in Media Player and that results in the most awful picture!

Thanks,

ok problem solvers and lateral thinkers - lets see can anyone get their head around this one as it is driving me round the bend.

So... I have a media centre PC connected to my HDTV by VGA cable. I ran the PC on XP for a long time but last December, I upgraded it to Windows 7 along with my laptop.

Cue 5 months of seamless media usage and network integration - it worked like a dream and I played both HD and SD content with ease.

About two weeks ago, I was watching an HD '.mkv' file and about 10 minutes into the video, the video file just hung - both the video and the audio. I had to power down and restart the machine and started the video file again. About 5 minutes after re-starting the video file, it hung again (not at the same place in the video). I then went and watched the video on my laptop where it worked fine.

A few days after this (first time I had used it again since it hung up) I began watching an SD '.avi' file. About 1 minute into the video the display lost it's signal (the little built in 'no signal' graphic came up) and after a further 15 seconds, the audio cut out as well.

This latter behaviour is now happening every single time I try to watch any kind of SD or HD video of any file extention. This problem is also independant of what video player I use (windows media centre and windows media player classic) After a minute or so the display cuts out and the audio quickly follows it.

When I play 29.97fps video files, there's a barely noticeable slowdown/stutter every 12 seconds, but once you notice it it's hard to ignore. Other frame rates (23/24/25/50/60) work fine. The only way I've found to fix it is with VLC Player (specifically version 0.8.6, on the other versions I tried it didn't work) - I turn off "overlay video output" (hardware acceleration). When it's turned off, it causes a lot of flicker when there's flashing lights or rapid movements, but it plays smoothly in the sense that there isn't a regular 12s slowdown/stutter.

Basically you start a video and it shows the first 20 or 30 frams very slow and jerky then just stops. You can even rewind or FF with the bar running across the bottom of WMP or Flash, they normally just stop responding.

This is confusing me because (A) it wasn't happening last week and (B) it's not just one program or one type of video file that is affected.

My PC is as follows...

-Core 2 duo processor
-Windows Vista Ultimate running WMP 11
-X1950 Pro graphics card
-4GB ram
-74gb Raptor Hard Drive.

So far i have tried reinstalling the video card drivers, checked it's not the HDD slowing down bby trying a USB one, tried to find a way to reinstall WMP 11 (no luck) and checked the CPU usage (absolutely fine).

Has anybody got any clue why this might be happening ?

Jon

I'm new to Vista. I just bought an Asus CM5570 with Pentium Dual Core CPU, 2.60 GHZ each, 6GB Ram, and 630GB HDD, running Vista Home Premium 64 bit OS. I've been previously on Windows XP Pro. In XP Pro I could open any video file, double click on a video, and a window would open playing that video with sound. How is this done in Vista?

A:Playing Video Files in Vista Windows

Download this Vista codec package and install it in the C:\Program Files x86, next get x64components and install them into C:\Program Files and reboot the computer. After that you are ready to play any video files using Windows Media Center or Windows Media Player. Just double click the file, same as in the XP.

For Vista 32bit use only codec package without x64 components.

This is a strange question im sure. Say you have all your movies loaded on a external harddrive. When you plug your harddrive into your laptop and play the movies from the harddrive on your laptop, does that essential write/imprint that movie code on to your computer, or is it still strictly on your HDD

A:Playing video files from Portable HD on Laptop

It should remain on the external hard drive only, external hard drives and even flash drives are essentially just hard drives that you can actively plug into and unplug from your system. The only place you may see traces of these files after playing them are on the actual video players themselves, I know Realplayer and Windows media player both used to have a recently watched section on their user interface (dont know if they do any more), but even then it would only be the name of the file that was played.

I have problems playing many video files, namely avi files, but not exclusively. The error Windows Media player gives is 80040265. It says the file is corrupt or not supported. I know for a fact these videos are not corrupt.

I've updated windows, updated windows media player, downloaded the latest divx and xvid codecs, installed defiler pak, and tried tons of different media players including VLC. They still won't play.

The only thing that I can think of is there's something in my system that is just screwing everything up. The only thing left for me to do is to reinstall windows.

This has only been happening since I installed Windows XP a few months ago.

Does anyone know what to do? It's really starting to make me mad. Thanks a lot.

I added more 1.2gb of ram to the already preinstalled 1 gb and it brought down the read rate (maybe im saying that wrong) to 266mhz single channel from 400mhz single channel

added an NVIDIA Geforce fx 5200, it might be a fake or custom one since it's a pci old(non-express) card not agp and its ram is only 128mb. the driver installed is windows vista version, I installed it using compatabillty vista mode not because I needed to but because it was recommended:
GeForce FX 5200

Okay, so I purchased a brand new computer (in parts) from NewEgg. I got:

Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 R Motherboard

Galaxy GTX550TI Video Card 2GB DDR5

Zephyr MX-750 (750 Watts)

AMD 6-core FX-6100 3.3Ghz Processor

A single 8GB 1333Mhz DDR3 RAM stick

A 1 TB Hard drive which I used as my main, and I owned a previous 1TB Hard Drive which I am using as my secondary.

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate. I've played Guild Wars, League of Legends, and Skyrim, and anywhere between 10-60 minutes, my pc will crash, freezing up completely and the sound will get stuck. I've gone 8+ hours with the PC on while in the Skyrim Construction set, using Microsoft Word, and browsing the net. At one point, I got the Blue Screen of Death (Only 1 incident) with the following code: 0x0000001E

I've updated everything, video card, motherboard, any windows component, updated. I ran my antivirus in case I brought anything from the old 2ndary HD, nada. There have also been a couple cases where we could smell something hot. Not burning, just hot.

It continued to freeze when I tried to play ANY game, so I sent the video card back. Had to be the video card, what else could it be? I got the new one today. It lasts longer, but it continues to freeze when playing any video games. I have part replacement/refund from NewEgg for another 20 days, I need to figure this out now. Help!!!

What freaks me out is that EVERYTHING is new. No idea what I can do in this particular situation.

Maybe there is an issue with your power supply.

Run this

While running this

Let them go for 1 hour and see what you get. It will render your PC pretty much useless so set it and step back and watch.

See if you still lock up.

Thanks in advance,

A:BSOD appears with minidumps - playing certain video files

Figure out what's HEXPRO.sys. Google does not have it. If this is a driver then upgrade or un-install it and check if the crash goes away. Run anti-virus scanner, as well as trojan, malware scanners: Ad-aware and Spybot S&D.

I use a laptop with Windows XP Home Edition, service pack 3. A couple of days ago I started having problems playing video and music files that have worked fine before. Windows Media Player 11 would give the me the error message;

"Your computer is running low on memory. Quit other programs and then try again"

As well as not giving any sound. I wasn't actually running any other programs at the time and the memory wasn't running low, so I tried playing the file in Media Player Classic. No error message, but also no sound. Although sometimes WMP11 doesn't display that message, but still plays the file with no sound.

With music files WMP11 would not give me the error message, but would not play the files either. Having experienced somewhat similar problems before, the first thing I tried was to uninstall and then reinstall the codec pack. However, when trying to reinstall the CCCP, I got the following message;



And a quick search I found out installing to a shorter path name would bypass that, so installed it C:\CCCP and it worked. And it did actually solve the problem, for about a day. But now it's happening again and I have no idea why. I tried the K-lite mega codec pack instead, but it made no difference.

Any ideas? If more information is needed I'll do my best to fill you in.

A:Porblems playing video/audio files recently

This article; http://support.microsoft.com/kb/210638

says;

"To disable automatic short file name generation, follow these steps:
Click Start, click Run, type regedt32, and then click OK.
On the Windows menu, click HKEY_LOCAL_ MACHINE on Local Machine.
Double-click the \SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem folder.
Double-click the NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation value, type the number 1 in the Data box, and then click OK.
Quit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.
NOTE: Existing files using the short name format will still be available to 32-bit programs, but all files created after this change is implemented will be unavailable to older 16-bit programs."

The default value for enabling it is 0 (mine is).

Check that yours is also.
