Well I gave up with trying to fix my old problems, so I backed up my stuff, and reformatted. I'm trying once again to encode my AVIs to MPEG-2 files with WinAVI, but now I've got another problem argh! Whenever I encode the files, there is NO video playback wahhhh! I've got some sample MPEG-2 files, and they play just fine. Anyone know whats going on?
