Well i think you are missing the video codec in your system that why cannot see but only hear, try to update your WMP to the latest version or download the codec from the following link (availability 2009Oct07): 1) http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=06fcaab7-dcc9-466b-b0c4-04db144bb601&displaylang=en
2) http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324290

If above not solve your problem then u may try other media player like K-Lite Codec Pack

I have quicktime player and I can't see the movie (I can only hear the sound) that has vlc mov codec and saved in quicktime program


I strongly recommend using VLC for watching any type of video. Programs like Quicktime player, windows media player etc often need codecs to play certain video types and formats like avi, flv etc. As for quicktime player, you propably need to download the proper codec for your movie format type

Hi Welcome to FixYa!
1)Simply download and install K-Lite codec pack for Windows media Player. You could download it from this link: http://www.free-codecs.com/download/k_lite_codec_pack.htm
2)After downloading, just install it and restart the computer

3)You will now be able to watch or play files with different extensions using Windows Media Player.
Hope this would be a big help.
Enjoy!

Can see frame but cannot see movie


Is it a downloaded movie? You possibly do not have the right codec to view it. Download VLC media player. It is free open-source software that can play practically any video format.

Watching hd movies online


All you need to watch HD movies is a fast internet connection. Your monitor and PC will be fine. Also, you cannot turn up the brightness only in windows media player or vlc player, you will need to turn up the brightness by using your function key command, which is hold down the Fn key, and press the sun symbol, which is probably blue, and next to one of your F keys at the top of your keyboard.

Please rate, thanks!

Install video on archos605wifi from pc without windows media player


I dont like it to use Windows media player and to synchronise.
In Settings -> System you need to set USB on 'PC Hard Drive'
Then you can use My Computer to find the Movies, just copy and past them in Archos -> Video map. Notice that Archos can't play any movie, you need special extensions.
I kow 1 exension, I convert my movies always in that 1 so Archos can read the movie: AVI MPEG4
There are more, but I need to find out.
Anyway, good luck trying to 'install' video's on Archos and also watch them ;)

Sorry, another problem


You need the correct codecs to play DVD's. The codec needed can be different for different DVD's. Just install K-lite codec pack. That should work fine.
