Locked

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

by Jacky Howe In reply to Blank video

the file extension on the downloaded ones that won't play. You should always check the format that the file is in before downloading. There are also proprietary formats that require you to invest in software to be able to view them. A quick google with a period . (full stop)EG: .mov will help to find a converter.
