    I am having problems playing some video files saved on my computer an
    on the net. I did not have this problem until i installed some codec
    on my computer. Now some files will still play and not crash m
    player. I am not sure what I did to cause this. I do know that
    install gordian knot and some other codec packs i found on bare share.
    As far as I know I uninstalled all of the codecs and both real playe
    and wmp still crash.

    A quick fix may be to uninstall then reinstall wmp and rp, unless you
    like fiddling around with re-doing file associations, etc. Too many
    exotic codecs (those in packs) sometimes tend to give you more than
    you really need, and conflicts can arise. Get your specific codecs
    from the author's website or from reliable sites like or

    I already tried that too. What is odd its only on some files. Think i
    is avi encoded with dvix. But then streaming video over the net crashe
    the embeded player too. I think the site I am at has its movies encode
    with dvix
