    Video but no music

    I am having a weird problem. WMP seems to be able to play videos perfectly, while FP only plays the sound with no video!

    does anyone have some advice?

    black, blank screen...
    by the way DVD playback works fine.

    EDIT:
    Just playing around with FP and noticed that pressing play for a video leads to sound and no video as before, yet when I open the built in DVD I see a single paused frame from the video I was trying to watch, and now I can't play DVD's...very odd

    Check to make sure you have WMP 9 or 10.
    Check to make sure your video card drivers are up to date.
    Check the options to make sure hardware acceleration is enabled.

    1)I had WMP 10 and rolled back to WMP 9...still the same problem (videos play normally in WMP just not in FP)

    2)Updated video card drivers....same problem

    3)hardware accel is enabled.

    is there anything else I can do?

    I was just playing around with the original FP.ini file and replaced it with the one I was using and...IT WORKS I can now see video and hear sound. Thanks for the advice frodo. I guees I must have stuffed something up in the .ini file.
