Windows Media Player: Trouble with streaming video

Recommended Posts

All of a sudden WMV movies streamed from the internet are audible but not visible on my system. Just like that. I checked MS's KB but found nothing helpful.

I can play movies of any supported extension locally without any trouble.

Thoughts?

yeah, sounds like a video codec problem. .. possibly an overlay problem... have you changed gfx drivers recently or isntalled any new codecs that might be trying to take the place of your old ones?

If you havent installed anything new then I'd suggest reinstalling WMP9

If you want to check for an overlay problem, lower the HW acceleration slider in display properties/advanced. This will result in reduced performance, but is a good way to troubleshoot overlay.

Thank you for your time,
