As far as I'm aware this isn't your typical "Codec Not Installed" problem...

Earlier today I was deleting some apps that I no longer use... one of the apps I deleted happened to be the WinDVD that came installed on the HP laptop... there was a warning before I deleted it but I never normally have an issue so I deleted it...

Anyway... now .avi files no longer play on my system... at first I had a 'WARNING: NOTHING TO OUTPUT BFRAME DECODER LAG" message on a black screen when I tried to play a file in any number of players... PowerDVD, (reinstalled) WinDVD for example... I installed the DivX codec again thinking maybe I had inadvertantly deleted it along with WinDVD and now the message no longer appears but any .avi I try to watch will remain static on its opening screen and refuse to actually play... I ran a check with GSpot and I have more than enough codecs installed for both Video and Audio playback so it does not appear to be a codec issue

I've tried everything i can think of besides formatting my laptop and doing a fresh install of everything... but that does seem a little drastic for a playback problem... I'm hoping some1 here can help me out


Thanks

Were you "deleting" the applications or "uninstalling" them.

There is a big difference!

Just curious... in G-Spot in the bottom section (proposed codec solutions and tests) were you able to play the avi file. (instructions under the MS AV column press 1 if all renders ok press 2 ...it should play in gspot) If it did not play did it give you any possible answers when it tried to render.
