Blank video

By luketigers ·
I am not able to view certain video files on my monitor. I can see embedded files like youtube and such but not actual dvds, downloaded media or video files.

It's quite frustrating now. I have tried downloading different codec packs such as k-lite and still nothing. Video on games and games run fine, it is just the VIDEO on those other files (audio is fine). All I see is a blank black screen.

Please enlighten me,

Luke.

What is the Screen Resolution?

If they do not have 32 Bit Color then you most likely do not have the Video Driver for your Video Card installed and this could be the problem here.

Check the post above for how to see if you have all the required drivers installed.
