Whenever I download a video off the internet, I can't see the video but I can hear the sound.. For example, a minute ago I download a BF2 video, opened it in windows media player but I can't see it.. Just black.. but I can hear the sound. The type of file is "Video Clip".

Sorry for double post but I can't edit

It looks like it only does this with "Video Clip" video files.

Have you tried any other media players like winamp or VLC?

Install that. It may not help, but your issue seems like a codec problem to me.

Indeed. That's what happens when you don't have the right video codecs.

If that codec pack above doesn't work for some reason, try this one:

I installed the first codec pack listed and can see the video now. Thanks.
