    My media player(s) have a strange problem where All videos are black, with Rainbow colors and things like that. It happens on both WinAMP and Windows Media player.
    any help is greatly appreciated.

    Sounds like a codec problem. What is the source of the vids you have problems with? Are they all from the same source? Is it only avi's and mpg, or are wmv's affected as well? Try going to www.divx.com, downloading and installing the latest dixv bundle. If you try playing divx compressed videos without the proper codec a problem like the one you describe can result.

    Well, I fixed it, but I don't really get it...
    I lowered the quality so I could take screenshot to post here, and then it worked. But if i put it in the best Acceleration, it goes back to the Wacky mode...
    Well, thanks for the help!
