Movie Player (Sound No Video)

Postby jokersloose on Tue Mar 04, 2008 2:30 am

OK, I downloaded a music video from frostwire. But do not get any video play back from Movie Player, so I tried Mplayer and get the same thing. Sound no video. When I open the folder the file is stored in it shows the start of the video so I would assume it's not the download.

Thanks,
James

Do you have the correct codecs? What type of video file is it (if it is AVI, post the encoding as well)?

OK this is weird. I get up this morning, re-boot and bang it works. Not sure what I was doing last night that caused it not to.

But thanks for the reply.
