I have a Nvidia tnt2 AGP 64MB card that works absolutely fine.......except when trying to view video streaming from the internet, then it either opens a window with nothing but computer gobble-de-gook or a black screen. Can anyone help me??

The problem is probably not your hardware.

What site are you accessing and please describe " gobble-de-gook".

Is this problem only occured in one site ?
If that is, then the problem is with server side :)

If it's not, then you haven't installed your player / codec properly.
.rm --> real media
.asf --> media player
etc etc

RonHum,

I think the whole problem can be resolved if you would just answer the question I posed at the top.  What URL are you accessing?
From that we should be able to determine the required player and codec.

The problem occurs on any url and gobble-de-gook is a window filled with compute code and nothing else. I am going to try to reload media player 9 and codecs later today and see if that resolves the problem.

You actually can play .RM files with Windows Media Player, this surprised me the first time I did it :-)

Could you maybe take a screenshot of this?

I haven't installed any codecs that are supposed to be geared to RealMedia files, aside from RealOne Player (although installing the player was not a choice, it was a requirement... I would never "choose" to install RealNetworks products).

However, thank you for mentioning that... It made me remember something that may help the questioner:

You can install the Nimo Codec Pack, which includes tons of popular codecs for the majority of all video types.

I would recommend Build 8.

Hi,
What browser are you using??
Sometimes you get the "page full of code" in Mozilla when it doesnt know how to handle it.
Have you tried updating your browser??
Cheers,
Glenn.

Looks like you got it solved, glad I could help.

Did installing the Nimo Codec Pack fix the problem?

Thanks for the points.
