    I have created an avi with an imaging analysis software and when I play it
    with WMP in XP Pro it is played and displayed correctly. However, in my new
    computer with Vista Home Premium and WMP 11.0, the avi is played but not
    displayed (all is black). However, the small icons in front of the file name
    and in the list pane displays the contect in the avi. What is wrong?

    Thanks for help!

    Thanks for the response.

    I ran an avi-file through the GSpot and the info was:
    Codec: (_RGB)
    Name: BI_RGB Raw Bitmap
    Status: No Codec Required

    I also just installed Roxio (was told that contains plenty of codecs) but
    still no movie display (apart from the small icons).

    Any ideas what it might be?
