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)

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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
