Video problem

Postby Magnus » Mon Jan 03, 2005 12:30 pm

I have a problem with playing videos in the screensaver. I want to play an wmv movie but on some computers the screen is just blank. The movie plays fine in windows media player so it shouldn't be a problem with the codec.

The problem is in both win XP and on win 2000. I have tried this on 7 computers and it works on 4 and you get the blank screen on 3.

I also tried other screensaver making programs but I got simular problems there.

Anyway I converted the movie into mpeg2 just to see if it was a problem with the wmv codec but that didn't help. It does work on all computers except one if I convert the movie into mpeg1 but the file is getting to big so I would really like to use wmv.

And ideas? I have tried anything I can think off the whole weekend. :(

If you use specific video compression, like DivX or MPEG4, you need to have the video decoder (codec) installed in the target computer for your video file format.
