    Since installing Vista I have had an issue with WMV playback using WM11. If
    I playback a WMV the picture is all blocky and mainly green in colour. It
    looks like some kind of codec problem. This problem happens with all WMV
    files. If I play the WMV in another media player such as the DIVX player it
    plays fine. The only other codec's I have installed other then that of the
    standard Vista ones are DIVX and AC3 for sound.

    Can suggestions welcomed...

    Thanks Glyn

    I had a similar green screen problem like this myself once before, but it was
    only with streaming .wmv files.

    My cable connection was way low speed, and as soon as I changed to a faster
    DSL line the problem was solved. This was WMP 10 on XP though, not Vista.

    It sounds like you are playing local files though, which doesn't sound
    right. Have you tried toying with the video accel inside of WMP
    tools/options/performance tab? Might be worth a shot to adjust it to none,
    and see if that might fix things.

    Hey Glynieboy, try this it will solve your problem

    Open windows media player, go to options, performance and untick "turn on
    directx Video acceleration for WMV files". and restart WMP11..
