Black screen while video playback on any player, but VLC (audio works)
I discovered that besides VLC player on my laptop all the other video player are not able to work properly (meaning,, Windows Media Player 12, Cyberlink PowerDVD12 and WMPC are able to play only the audio, but not the video, it's just just black screen),, BUT with VLC is no problem playing any video format!! The thing is that I didn't have this problem previously,, all my video players were able to play all the same video files, which they can't now!
I have the latest AMD Radeon HD video drivers installed. As I mentioned I didn't have this problem before,, with a previous versions of the AMD graphics card driver. This happened to my laptop a while ago already,, since I have this problem I updated my video drivers 5 or 6 times at least, and no change so far !!!
Why am I assuming that the cause of my problem is the graphics card driver is, for ex. when I had just re- installed my windows (fresh! from Windows 7 to Windows 8),, the video playback was working, while the graphic card was running on the drivers provided by Microsoft! as soon as I am installing the driver for my model of AMD Radeon graphic card I am staring to have the problem.
As I mentioned I have the problem for some time already, during this time I re-installed my Windows couple of time, plus I even changed the version of the windows (7to8), for the moment I have the last version of video driver installed, I haven't installed ANY codecs
Can anyone help me with this pleas?
Thanks and have a nice day, hope we can solve this. ))

You may simply require a codec (code/decode) pack to enable video in other players, have you got any codecs installed ?
If not you could try k-lite codec pack or CCCP seem to be quite popular
You may also require matroska codecs for playing HD contect like .mkv files or HD .mp4

I have never used any codec pack ,, it was never required , for me to play simple .avi or .wma file on WMP12 or specially on Windows Media Player Classic !! So the problem is my video card driver ,,, which started to cause this problem since about 8 updates ago,,, I probably could go back and start to use the version was working for me,, but I just don't wanna miss out on the updates/improvements AMD does for it's drivers! well apparently those updates made it worse for me, but I am hoping to find some sort of work around solution, if there is?! So if you can think of something,, pleas let me know, I'd appreciate it a lot ))
