ok ok heres the new deal...I uninstalled Mplayer
Now I can actually play files, though I'm using xine and VlC, while they play wmv audio they don't show any video...just sound no picture, and yes I plan on reinstalling mplayer
I just wanted to see if this problem was affecting all of the players and that it wasn't the file. I'm assuming theres something amiss here. If I only knew where
wmv= plays audio but no video
mplayer= didn't play wmv at all
xine & vlc= played wmv only no video ,just audio.
I'm sorry if I'm changin pace a bit but its the same issue.
