So I have LM 15 installed and I got my shared folder with all my movies in various formats (.mkv, .avi, .mp4, etc etc). All the formats will open in VLC and VIDEOS programs with audio nice and crisp. However the screen remains black and there is no video. Did I miss something? I searched the forums and what I did find on this was not very helpful. They either solved the issue and didnt report the resolution or they recommended installing video codecs but do not tell where to get them.
I have this installed on VirtualBox as a Linux Guest on a Win7 Host. Both 64bit. Any help would be appreciated.
