mpeg video no longer displays

MPEG VERSION OF "GOODTIMES" VIDEO FROM WIN95 CDROM NO LONGER DISPLAYS ON SCREEN.
Original installation of WIN95 (OSR2) included an MPEG subfolder of VIDEOS, with MPEG version of "GoodTimes" and some 50's clip... No problem playing them. Tried again more recently, and this time I get the audio but no video. There is a blue square where the video picture should be. Plus some screen interference and a thin vertical line of extraneous video running parallel to the video window. Music sounds fine.
I've tried reinstalling the "Multimedia" components (8 of them in all) via the CD-ROM installation disk: no change. Checked the video drivers section in the configuration chart - it lists a whole lot of compression codecs, Cinepak to Indeo, but no MPEG. Tried to find an MPEG driver to reinstall, but can't locate anything remotely ressembling one from the name. Tried the help.txt files in WIN95 folder, no help on this one..
Anyone have a suggestion? Other than unistalling WIN95 and starting all over again... Would be appreciated, many thanks to anyone who knows the driver... Michael G.
