    Hi,

    I have a samsung laptop running windows xp sp3. My laptop has intel HD graphics on board.
    I have direct x 9.0c installed on my laptop and i have the latest version of winamp ver 5.622 installed on my laptop. I have some videos downloaded from youtube in .FLV format. When i play these videos in fullscreen mode in winamp, i don't see the on-screen controls. This happens with .FLV files only.

    Right clicking the video while its playing reveals the adobe flash player video menu which led me to the conclusion that winamp is using adobe flash player to run .FLV files instead of its own codecs as i also have adobe flash player installed on my machine.

    Also, when i play the videos, i see the xvid logo(xvid is installed on my machine) in the system tray, which further confuses me about the codecs that are being used to play the videos.

    Please help..........

    Thanks for your post killeramy, i have already tried updating directx and i now have directx 9.0c. Have tried reinstalling winamp but it hasn't helped.

    OSD works for other files but not for .FLV. My doubt is about winamp using adobe flash player and not its own decoder and that may be the culprit.

    I have intel HD graphics on board on my laptop.
