Hi Guys,

I did a fresh install of Visat (x64) over the weekend and went to play some of my avi files last night. Forgot that I hadn’t installed any codecs for media player 11 so went off and got the usual klite codec pack (64 bit version). Installs fine but still I am just getting sound with no video. Klite doesn’t seem to be working. (uninstalled and re-installed it several times) I did a search for other codec packs and I’ve installed a few (Vista codec pack, All-in-1, Shark, x64 Codecs) and still nothing.

It’s a bit odd as I always remember klite doing the job after a fresh install. Can anyone suggest a resolution? Is there a setting in media player 11 I need to turn on or active the klite codec pack?

I don’t want to use VLC or another player as my media centre remote won’t work with them, so really want to get media player working. Any help would be great!

Sounds like a broken codec, you could try Codec Tweak Tool to fix/repair dodgy/broken ones.
You can also try manually installing Divx/Xvid from here

Install the 32-bit codec pack. You'd only need 64-bit codecs with the 64-bit version of WMP (yes, there are two and the 32-bit version of WMP is default).

Nothing wrong with the portable version for testing.

We had a case here recently, where DirectDraw was not available. Better check with DXDIAG.
