Windows Media Player 10 Problems - blank screen :(

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by English Patient, Feb 27, 2006.

  1. I have Windows Xp and recently downloaded the upgrade from WMP9 to WMP10

    Now when I try to player a recording from my TV Card (in mpeg2 file format)
    all I get is a blank screen and audio.

    There's nothing wrong with my mpeg files since they open all find and dandy
    using VideoReDo.

    I thought returning to WMP9 would fix things but it seems WMP9 is no longer
    avaliable to windows xp users

    Any suggestions most welcome.

  3. Thanx for the link.

    Have dnlded it and can now view my files once again. :)
    Guess it's gonna take a while to get used to using a diff player.

    Now if only I could get the playlist to be displayed on the RHS of the
    like WMP does, rather than as a separate window <- any ideas ?

    I don't know of the program you are using now, but I can say that I use Ace
    DivX Player and it is another good player. It has the playlist option too.
    Its at:
    I use this now because I too had big problems with WMP 10. Not sure if it is
    just a bug in this version, but I would get locked up and have to reboot.
