Video with Sound, but NO Picture

Postby gygan » Mar 17, 2010 8:54 am

If you downloaded a video file and all you get is audio but no picture then your computer is missing the required Codec.

There are a few different Codec Packs you can download, but we recommend downloading FFDSHOW.

Download FFDSHOW

Simply install FFDSHOW and try watching the video again.

Try using the free video player VLC... It can play almost any file and it can fix most broken files. You can download it at: http://www.videolan.org/

VLC Video Player is great. Works with every video format.

It's almost always a codec problem. You can try:

if ffdshow didn't work for you.
