Re: Can't play AVI in WMP11. FIXED!!!
Thanks for your post. I did try FFDShow but nothing changed. I have fixed
this ongoing problem by installing K Lite Codec Package 3.6.5. The
installation process detected broken files/codecs and fixed them.
YAHOOOOO, only took 1 month of frustation.
Offers and suggestions that did not help fix this error included:
(The following were used on their own and with others)
Divx Pro 6.8
Vista Codec Package
By uninstalling all other codecs and installing the K Lite codec package, I
can now watch AVI's in both WMP 11 and PowerDVD 7. Codec Packages are not bad
like many others say. I sincerely hope that what I have learnt here will help
