Re: Animator - Black screens

Ian Deans <isdeans1.-_@...>

Unfortunately I cannot play AVI's on WMP as I get the message that " WMP as
stopped working " Even after re formatting my HD and reloading the
operating system ( Vista Home Premium 32 ) I cannot use WMP for AVI's.

As a result my Windows Experience Index cannot be updated as the Winsat
program fails on the WMP playback. Roll on Windows 7 !!!

Hello All,

I don't use Tanimator or TAVIwriter2 or compressed avi.
But this is on XP SP3 (have used SP2 successful before).

Googling on "Black screens" and "AVI" comes up with over 6500 hits !
A good test could be stopping Animator and playing a problematic AVI
(stored under images&#92;Animations) in windows media player.
If it does also show black screens in WMP too, send it to me (using
yousendit) and I will try on my system.

DirectShow is used by WMP which is part of the DirectX package as far as I
know and there are a lot of versions and issues on this!
We may need to move this discussion to Satsignal-list when it gets more
