    I used to be able to go to a website like and
    view and listen to video's. I am not sure when this quit
    working but now it does open windows media player and it
    say's ready then playing but the screen is blank and
    there is no sound. I have tried updating to mediaplayer 9
    and I also checked my internet options to make sure the
    view and sound in wepages is checked and it is. I am
    wondering if one of the automatic windows updates that I
    automatically install could have changed something?
    If anyone knows how to fix this problem please help me.
    I have wondows xp

    I have a similar problem. I can play .avi files and can
    only hear sound, there is no video and the video screen
    is grey. It is ok with .mpg and .asf files.

    Could somebody please help.
