Movies display green screen in Media player, tried all the normal stuff with nemo, ffdshow.
Posted on 2004-04-20
I have had a ‘green screening’ Codec problem for some time now.
These are quite a few articles on EE, which have tried to fix individual problems. I have tried the suggestions in quite a few but I still can’t fix my problem.
I have tried installing:
K-lite mega codec pack 1.01
ACE Mega codec pack 5.95
I have done all the above with and without Ffdshow (latest version)
I uninstalled each Codec and FDDshow then rebooted each time before installing the next.
In combination with the above I have used various players other than Media player 9, including Media Payer classic but I still have the green screen problem.
The problem is the same with mpg, avi, asf and wmv. I am using 2000 service pack 4
I have notices though, that when I try to delete an individual codec in control panel that it’s still there the next time I look
Before anybody asks, no I am not trying to watch fake encoded porn from kazaa, the problem happens when trying to view quality stuff such a full length movies and music videos.
Basically what I am looking for is for someone to instruct me how to clean down my computer, completely, of all Codec, Filter’s and other possible sources of conflict. Then to install everything I need to view most videos, DVD’s avi, mpgs etc with no problem.
Grateful for all help offered.
