The start, I can hear the file but it's just a black screen. The file plays in Media player
It could be the codec the .avi was encoded with. Do you happen to know what its codec is?
On a side note, winamp doesnt have the best video support in the world, so it could just be a bug in the software. I am sure you know of the other great video players out there (VLC, MPC)
G-spot is a good thing to have: http://www.headbands.com/gspot/
I had an exact problem but it was with VLC. I reinstalled codec pack and all is well.
Not to get off topic, but VLC doesn't need codecs for almost everything.. thats the beauty of the application. What was it your were trying to playback?
I have other players. Somehow the codec got corrupted and when I reinstalled k-lite pack, VLC returned to normal.
I was trying to play a avi file but only got audio with a black or (gray?) screen
Actually, I didn't reinstall, I went from ACE to K-lite. (uninstalled ace)
aprox is right, winamp is sucky for any type of video. if i recall correctly there was an mplayer plugin for winamp, that'll handle almost anything, similar to VLC. winamp doesn't even utilize directshow it seems, since wmp plays the file just fine
