Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
While playing video from some internet sites like youtube, the video sometimes goes out but the audio is still working.
Video on a computer is comprised of two components, known as codecs. The audio codec decodes the audio, and the video codec decodes the sound. If one of these codecs is missing or corrupted, then either the sound or the video won't work. I'm surprised it's happening with youtube since their video is quite a generic format. If you can get hold of a file where this happens, there is a utility called GSpot which takes the file and tries to render it, reporting detailed failures where a codec is not working or not found. Try running your piece of video through that and googling the results, you will likely be able to find a codec that fixes your problem.
