    I have attached an earlier thread (see below) regarding this problem but I
    have since discovered that although sometimes I can get WMC or Windows Media
    Player to work (view video not just hear audio) on my profile (set as Admin)
    it works fine when I switch to my wife's profile (also Admin) without
    rebooting, however if I switch back to my profile neither WMC nor WMP will
    show video but as soon as I go to her profile both work fine. Any help is
    greatly appreciated





    I just tried that and I still have the same problem. I did notice that I
    also can't view .wmv files in Windows Media Player. Could it be a codec
    issue?

    Apparently there are differences in one of the following between your User
    settings and your wifes.
    Display
    MC
    Services
    Codec setting default for MC

    I am sorry if it was not clear that you should at both you and your wife's
    settings for each of the items in the list I provided.
    For example compare you MC(Media Center) TV settings

    I can see those settings but I don't see where it allows me to check the
    following " Apparently there are differences in one of the following between
    your
    It seems very strange to me that I can't view any video (makes now
    difference if it is live or recorded) regardless of the source (email
    attachment, TV, DVD etc) yet on the same machine my wifes desktop has no
    problems.

    I appreciate all advice given.
    Thanks
