    ok, so far i've only noticed this to happen with .asf files, and i have no idea why it's happening. when i open the .asf files, windows media player pops up and then starts buffering, which is normal. but then after it buffers some, it will start to play the files but i can only hear it. there is no video whatsoever; just a black screen. i've tried downloading codec packages, opening it with other players, upgrading my windows media player, and some other stuff. i think my player just can't recognize that file format for some reason because i have streamed other VoD files before that had the extension .asx i think it was. if anyone has had this happen and knows wtf is going on, or if anyone just has any ideas that might help, plz help.

    Try the zoomplayer, I find it to be the least problematic and most comprehensive media player. And are you able to perhaps save the stream to watch it more efficiently, like using WM recorder or ASFTOOLS, or some of the many other stream saving programs, like perhaps streambox, if you can find it.
