I like to view music videos in .flv format so I use mplayerc.exe because besides plays video and music, doesnt need to be installed in my hard disk and executes it continuously without being necessary clicking each time for each song, I formatted my hard disk and nowadays appears this message when I use it

Media player classic could not render some of the pins in the graph; you may not have the needed codecs or filters installed on the system

C:\Backup\music\4 Non Blondes Whats Up Videoclip.flv::Video

Media Type 0:
Video: Flash Video 1 320x238

majortype: MEDIATYPE_Video {73646976-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71}
subtype: Unknown GUID Name {31564C46-0000-0010-8000-00AA00389B71}
formattype: FORMAT_VideoInfo {05589F80-C356-11CE-BF01-00AA0055595A}
bFixedSizeSamples: 1
bTemporalCompression: 0
lSampleSize: 1
cbFormat: 88

if I click on CLOSE it reproduces only sound, not video at all.  What do I have to do to solve this?  I dont ant to change mplayerc for other one

Thanks for your help

    Hi, I have seen this error a couple of times playing various video in MPC as well
     install ffdshow that should fix it
    Once you reloaded your windows you'll need some codecs to resolve video playback.
    ffdshow covers the main area
    VLC will also give you the codecs
    more info here on ffdshow
