View Full Version : Pc World Cd

I have just tried to watch the tutorial on this months PC World cd. I ended up listening but not watching. Media player opened and played the sound track but not the video. All I got was Media Players visulizations.
Anybody got any thoughts on what the problem could be and how to correct it?

I had exactly the same problem with this months and then when I tried it the previous months CD.

The only thing I could think of that caused it was I was in a site through Firefox and I had to take a Macromedia Flash (or some other viewer) plugin to view the site - I don't think the plugin completed successfully.

I restored my PC back to a point prior to the plugin installation and everything was OK

You probably dont have the correct codec installed. Use Gspot to find the right one to download

What version of Windows Media Player do you have? It states that at least version 9 is required for its codecs.
