Computer Help!

Hey people.

I seem to be having a problem with my computer, atleast playing videos anyway.

I just installed windows mediaplayer 9 thinking it would solve my problem but its still here. Whenever I play movies (*.avi, *.mpg, *.mpeg, *.wmv or whatever) the majority, not all, are chopped up.

It doesn't happen all th etime, maybe about 80% and its so annoying.

I also downloaded some codecs from the microsoft site but thye haven't done jack. Below is a screenshot of what it looks like when it happens.

Anyone got any ideas?

Looks as though they're corrupted movie files. Did you try another player before Media Player 9? I'd assume you did and that you tried to fix it by installing Media Player 9?

If so, then possibly try the video files on another PC and see if the problem stays, at least then you can work out what is causing the problem - the file or the PC.

Aside from that, you've installed the latest codecs, media player 9 should do it fine. I'd also recommend ensuring you've got:
a) the lastest video drivers for your video controller
b) the latest version of Microsoft DirectX -

See how you go.
