    If the problem is relatively recent, you might try a System Restore -- these can be undone if not helpful. Beware of 3rd party codec installers -- many of them are fronts for ad or spyware.

    There are a couple of utilities here that may be useful. Try the MS codec checker to see if you have the proper mpeg codec for your player.


    Gspot can also be helpful.


    Can you play videos using this:

    I have the same problem only it happened all of a sudden and I can't fix it codec's are good and everything it just no picture for any video at all nothing I have found has been able to fix this thing. I'm pretty handy with computers but I have no idea.
