    o crap -- all video and images come upside down

    yeah this is a bit weird. I was trying to open up this jpeg and it came upside down and it wasn't originally upside down so i was just like whatever. then now i opened up a mpg and the video is upside down too! ahh - can someone help?"

    Restart to see if it goes away. Sounds like someone played a trick on you.

    Coincidence I think.

    The wrong CODEC can sometimes cause a video to play upside down as you say - i have seen this myself, a JPEG on the other hand.... Pfff, I doubt it was the right way up to start with - rotate it and see if it stays, also, look for some other JPEG's on your system, I'm betting they are OK.

    If not - sorry - no idea.

    BTW - why is your sig the wrong way round, is that a joke or summit?

    *whistle*

    On the other hand it is too big, max size is 500 pixels wide and 150 pixels in height. Please adjust

    Flipped video is a normal problem to have occur. Besides the way you found to correct the problem, it can also be fixed in much the same way using FFDShow, or it can be fixed through the registry be making the following change:

    Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Scrunch/WMVideo/Vertical Flip Packed YUV, and then set the DWORD value of this registry key to 1.
