I have an Acer Aspire One. I'm trying to play video files using Windows Media Player and only hear audio. There is no video (with the exception of the patterns that you see when only audio is playing). Please help. George forsa@theramp.net 312-218-4200

Hi

all you need to do to get the video to work is to install FFDSHOW CODEC.
http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=4787&s=50

download the file
extract the contents
run the program file / setup file / ffdshow..
install the program next next next next next next done, you don't need to adjust any settings.

ones ffdshow is installed it will work on the background when you play a video file.

all video files should work and show picture now.

let me know.
Thanks,
Ekse

Hi,

Depending what the file types are, you may not be able to view them,

And there could be a DRM problem too.

HERE and HERE are two file converters for you, Freeware

Win media uses AVI files nativly this could be your problem, check the file extensions on the files.

HERE is a list to explain file types for you.

Hope this helps
Regards
Richard

Download K-lite codec pack from the internet and install it on your system. After installing you can play your audio or video file of any format.

The sound works fine except when you play dvds- it has no sound whatsoever


This is very likely a codec problem. A codec is a software component used with video and audio players that translates the electronic media file into something that can be displayed. Most of the time, the video codec will be out of date and you'll hear the audio but not see any video. You've got the reverse problem, obviously.


Unfortunately, Microsoft does not make this easy. Even the latest download of codecs from Microsoft doesn't necessarily update the Windows Media Player to play any DVD. You will need to do a codec search and download the latest. Last time I checked, 'download.com' had them available (this is CNet's download website). Good luck!

My acer laptop was formated, since I got it back I cant play any dvd nor cd... I do have media player but message appear stating that the following files cant be played..


Yes, you have missed the codec files.

Download "Windows essentials Codec pack", below is the link

http://download.softpedia.ro/dl/7dd4bba62e0c22582981d1a9546796dc/4b45cc15/100071211/software/MULTIMEDIA/VIDEO/DIVX/WECPSetup.exe

Install this, you will be able to play almost all files in your windows media player.

I recommend you use VLC player, it can play any file formats both Audio or Video without any Codec and moreover it's completely open source. Below is the VLC player download link

http://www.videolan.org/mirror-geo.php?file=vlc/1.0.3/win32/vlc-1.0.3-win32.exe

That's it

Compaq DVD Player problem


You need a new DVD codec. If you have a copy of WinDVD, give it an install. Otherwise, try the free codec on www.divx.com.

It sounds like a hardware problem, but to be sure, trying playing different kinds of files and also use a different player. For example, if you're using Itunes, try Windows Media Player or playing a sound file from the internet such as a myspace page.
