Can't play some WMV video files? Audio plays. No video.

I have tried loading VLC, K-Lite codecs, tried playing in WMP/WMC/WINAMP/VLC all with no luck. They play the audio fine, and I can open some WMVs ok, but others won't open.

I have tested the files on another PC using VLC and they play fine.


Anyone know of any special way to check what codec could be the culprit?

There is a program called gSpot that will identify the codec information from a video file. Just be careful looking for it on google!

Gspot is a good program. Search for gspot codec and you won't have many problems in google.

I hate the codec game so much that I've just about decided that if it doesn't play on the system I just won't watch it. I've screwed up every system I ever built adding codec's to it.
