I am having trouble playing most video files like mpeg and divx/xvid videos files. Only the sound plays, and the video is all black. This is regardless of the software i'm using, i've tried windows media player, vlc, k-lite and other players (all using up to date editions). However, I can play dvds but only through windows media player; the video is black but the sound plays if I use another program. I've noticed that after updating my display driver this problem appeared. But I can't roll back the display driver when I try to. Besides, I would like to retain my updated display driver because it gives correct resolution for my widescreen lcd (the old driver didn't have the correct resolution option). Can anyone help me?

Any video file that is .avi requires codecs. Most players don't have a comprehensive list of codecs on their chips though they have divx and xvid on many devices these days. divx and xvid are codec types of .avi. Types such as .mpg or .mpeg or mp3 or mp4 are older and more compatible with most equipment. mkv may not work
Please check the format of the video that you are trying to play.
this Iomega ScreenPlay Plus HD Media Player is certified to play popular DivX video, and supports many of today's popular CODECs and file types, including H.264, WMV and MKV, as well as plenty of others. (For a comprehensive list of supported video, audio and photo files. Most probably the video that you are trying to play is .3GP or .FLV.
For this you need to convert the video files to supporting format like DivX®, DivX Plus™ HD (MKV), XviD, AVI(Xvid, AVC, MPEG1/2/4), ISO, VOB, MP4, MOV, MKV,H.264, WMV, RMVB and MPEG.
maybe video format is not compatiable with PSP. I heard this video converter converts video files, YouTube videos, movies so you can play
them on your PSP. The software can convert all types of video files
(avi, divx, xvid, flv, x264, vob, mpeg, YouTube, etc.) into the
proper video formats (MPEG-4, H.264) that play on the PSP.
The player plays strictly DIVX files, but not variants like XVID (which today is more common since divx became not free).
Divx is actually the same than XVID. After spending days converting my files from xvid to divx, realized that changing only the FOURCC code of the files works.
Look for a program named videoinspector. It allows to edit the fourcc for a video file. for all xvid and variants change the fourcc of the files to DIVX. The change takes a second instead hours of conversion, and movies in xvid that used not to play on this device, now will be played without problems.
You have to convert your video to DVD format (MPEG-2 or VOB) at first, otherwise normal DVD player cant read and play your burned DVD. I always use avs video tools to convert and burn video to DVD to play on my TV, my friends recommend it to me, it's easy to use and works pretty well for me, you may download it for a try, and here is a guide about how to use it http://www.freedvdripper.net/guides/burn-avi-divx-xvid-mpeg-mp4-to-dvd.html If you have any other questions, feel free to email me.
Using Windows Media Player
You need Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher and Sharp G.726 Audio Codec in order to play MPEG4 files from the Memory Stick on your PC.
If you are not currently using Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher.
Important: The Sharp G.726 Audio Codec needed to play MPEG4 files is no longer signed by Microsoft.
If Sharp G.726 Audio Codec is not properly installed on your PC, it will not play MPEG4 Audio.
You can also download a free DivX® Player and codec to play your MPEG and other video format files.
DivX® for Windows is a free codec built to play every version of DivX content. The DivX codec also plugs into your existing video software so you can view and create high-quality DivX videos at a fraction of the original size. The DivX codec also adds DivX video playback support to most popular media players.
