    Hi all,

    I recently downloaded a video from a trustworthy website, and i couldn't play it, they recommended going to "http://www.divxmovies.com/software/" and downloading the SVCD codec, '' which is an MP2 decoded. this allows microsoft windows media player to play these videos''.

    I downloaded the SVCD codec for MP2 Playback, but it was all fuzzy then.
    Heres the strange Part: When I click on File or play or one of the menus, it plays perfectly :confused:

    *edit: i have to HOLD file down, not just click it, when i close the menu it goes back to fuzzy.*

    How weird is that?

    well, yeh, any comments / suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Deon
