I have a P2 300 with 128 megs of ram, win98se and Voodoo3 2k video card. When I try to play an avi (not divx) with media player (any version) it only plays the audio, not the video. I have tried several other video players, like winDVD, and they only show the media player logo where the video should be. I have installed all of the codecs that come with media player, but I noticed that when it loads the avi, it flashes "searching for codec..." at the bottom of the window 3 or 4 times before playing the audio. The version of Directx doesn't seem to matter. A fresh Windows install had no effect. I have performed the exact same install procedure on two other computers and they don't have this problem.
Anyone have any suggestions?
