    Exclamation Windows 7 Media Player

    I was wondering if anyone could help?

    I've installed windows 7 beta on my PC and whenever I try to play a video in media player the screen flashes black!?! The videos are in xvid format.

    Thanks,

    Mike.

    You need the xvid codec to be installed:
    Download the XviD Codec - XviD Movies

    Thanks for the advice!

    I've tried this already and it's still jumping around the place! It's stupid! Works fine on my laptop with windows 7 installed. Any other ideas?

    Nothing else I can think of with WMP. Have you tried VLC Player?

    First of all, you need not to install any codec pack in Windows 7 as XVID is supported by default. May be some other problems like drivers etc..

    its working fine with me but sometimes flicks when we plays some new formats that are supported by WMP12 but not by the WMP11......and xvid is one of them...
