Windows 7: WMP12 and Zune - video playback issue, please help

I had another thread that addressed a different aspect of this, but the final resolution was the same.

This is what I think happened. Somewhere along the line, an option for ASUS Splendid was introduced into my system. I only seem to be able to access this via a right click on the desktop.

Never have used it or even noticed it before. But, I did update drivers some time ago, so perhaps that was it.

Anyhow, this was set to "Vivid". Someone suggested looking at the options for display if I right clicked the desktop. I disabled this option, and suddenly, WMP12 started working!

I am sure it was the same problem for Zune, but I have since unloaded that from my system.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Turns out to be a simple fix, and not catching it right after some driver updates, causing confusion on this end.

Playing FLV video with Zune Software
I have Shark007's codecs installed on Windows 7 64 bit SP1. I can play all kinds of files including FLV videos using WMP12. But Zune 4.7 software can't open FLV files. Does Zune not support Shark007's codecs?
