"no combination of filters could be found to render the stream"
I've used a new copy of rundll32.exe and amovie.ocx no luck. I need to remove all avi, mpeg & codec pointers in the registry somehow, because even though all filters are there activemovie can't find them. How would I go about COMPLETELY REMOVING Activemovie from the system so that a fresh install would clean up all problems ??

I've reloaded active movie through a MS download, installed ( re-installed) all appplicable codecs. Problem started within a day of installing DVMPEG a program for converting AVI2MPG. I've also removed the product to no avail, and reinstalled the product. I am running Win98.

I have seen this several times before, try the following

If you have Internet Explorer 4.0 or 4.01, you may want to try the following steps to remove the ActiveMovie and then Re-install it.


SUMMARY
This articles describes how to uninstall and reinstall the ActiveMovie component from Internet Explorer.



MORE INFORMATION
ActiveMovie is now a component of DirectShow. Because of this, you can not uninstall this component by using the Add/Remove Programs tool. To uninstall and reinstall the ActiveMovie component from Internet Explorer, use the following steps:

NOTE: The following steps also uninstall DirectShow, but DirectShow is reinstalled when you reinstall ActiveMovie.


Click Start, and then click Run.

Type the following command in the Open box, and then press ENTER:
windows\system\unam4ie.exe


      -,LaunchINFSectionEx,quartz.dll,DifferentSection,64,{4112DF42-0DCB-11
         d1-8177-00AA00576BAD}

   NOTE: There are no spaces in this command except for 1 space after
   unamie4.exe, and you must type this command on one line.


Click Start, point to Settings, click Control Panel, and then double-click Add/Remove Programs.

On the Install/Uninstall tab, click Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0, and then click Add/Remove.

In the Internet Explorer 4.0 Active Setup dialog box, click "Add a component to Internet Explorer", and then follow the instructions on the screen to connect to the Internet Explorer 4.0 Component Download Web page.

Click the DirectShow check box to select it, and then follow the instructions on the screen to finish the installation.


Hope this Helps
Craig

This solution MAY work for 95 with an IE4 upgrade, but in 98 ie4 is integral, and has neither the unam4ie.exe, nor the ie4 component in the install/uninstall menu.

Well, I did find a fix. Installing Media Player 6.0 solves everything, and is a nicer interface to boot !

This fix actually removed Activemovie as well. No need to reinstall it either.

Tried that originally as noted above.

I found a solution myself, however, and withdrew the question some time ago.
