XviD videos only have audio and no picture after upgrade from PowerDVD 6 to PowerDVD 7 Ultra.

    Hi,

    We just upgraded our PowerDVD from version 6 to version 7 Ultra (to get support for high def videos) and now my old XviD videos that always worked fine with version 6 no longer work.

    When I play them I hear the audio but the video is just blank/black.

    Can anyone suggest what has happened or how to fix this?

    Thanks =)

    I'm no expert in this field but I had this problem not so long ago and Im sure I found the solution either in the Power DVD settings or in the Nvidia Graphics driver settings.
    Considering your circumstances I would imagine some default settings have been changed.
    Try looking for "video Overlay" settings and changing the state of that which I think is in your GFX settings rather than P/DVD.
    I thinks that was my solution but cant remember sorry.

    tis probably a codec issue. if winamp, or wmp, or vlc wont play it either, reinstall xvid codec. i'll bet itl work then.
