Default No Video Only Sound?!?

Hey guys I'm new to the xvid scene and i was trying to play a video in xvid format. I downloaded all the correct codecs and tested it through gspot which said they were installed. However, when i try to play it through media player 6.4, it says the codecs are not installed and i only get the sound, no video. Could someone perhaps tell me what im doing wrong?

Thanks

1) Load the video file into VirtualDub (or one of its many variants) or NanDub

2) From the "File" dropdown menu, select "File Information"

3) Post (here) EVERYTHING you see (BOTH video and audio information), or post a screen capture .jpg of the information box

Well if your guys aren't going to do what setarip suggested and yes it would make it a lot easier for us to help try installing FFDShow

You've probably downloaded a fake or corrupt video...

Well it cant be fake cuz i fast forwarded through the video and the sound is obviously from the movie and it cant be corrupted cuz ive checked everything to see whether its not. I know the problem is that my computer cant detect the codecs even though theyare installed.... God damn im pissed.... 9 hrs for nothing

So which is it - do you or don't you see the video?




"9 hrs for nothing"

What do you mean by this?
