Default Xvid Error

Greetings

I have a major problem effecting all my Xvid movies. All my divx
movies seem to work fine, both my divx and xvid codecs are up
to date.

However when I try and play one of my xvid movies through
windows media player, I get the green screen, and eventually
media player will crash unless I do a ctrl+alt+del and get the
windows security popup and then click cancel.

Then it takes me back to windows and it seems to run however
I still cant run it in full screen only maximized, this is only with
my xvid movies.

I'm running WinXP SP1

Hope someone can assist me
Regards
Tank

Update your graphic card driver and DirectX. You might want to try using FFDShow to decode the XviD files as well (Install and Configure it to play XviD contents).

I have the same problem. I also have WinXP Pro SP1. BTW ffdshow doesn't fix the problem.

I think that all began with installing a new version of the xvid codec. Since then I can only watch xvids made with that codec but not the other ones. The truoble is I don't know the number of the previous version...

ffdshow should be used as playbackfilter when installed and set up properly.

maybe it's wrong something with Win-xp SP1. Bug or something like that.
It's not amazing, because of microsoft.
