Windows 7: Computer becomes slow when I get into a folder with 1080p videos and s

17 Oct 2011   #21

I have a greater problem now ; The thumbnails are still the same unfortunately , but when I try to open a file which hasn't got a thumbnail, the video doesn't play, just the audio, and some don't even play at all!

I unistalled the old codecs (with the x64 components) as you told me before installing the new ones


Help me please Shark

Open each Settings app using a righrclick on the shortcut and choose, Run as Administrator.
Just openning them like that will perform some setups and most likely, solve your problems.

For some people, disabling UAC (user account control) can cause weird things to happen.
Did you lower the UAC setting on your system?

On the Config TAB of the 64bit app is a checkbox to Disable Thumbnails.
Is there any error message if you check / uncheck that box?

as a test . . . in this order

uninstall the codecs
set UAC to the 'Default' setting, reboot your system
re-install the codecs, open each app as an admin using a rightclick on the shortcut
select the SUGGESTED settings checkbox in each app

test you files for playback..thumbnails etc

I tried them with and without suggested settings (using UACdefault settings) , but it didn't work, so I uninstalled them again , set UAC to Never notify again and tried installing them again,I selected the Suggested settings with UAC disabled and now ALL the thumbnails work, but the videos that have thumbnails now and before didn't, don't work, just audio, and some of them can't be played (not even audio)

I have thumbnails now but a lot of files don't work

I can enable it if you want to!! It's just that UAC is so annoying I turned it off xD


Tried the filetypes association again but nothing happens it's still the same


Tell me if I should enable again

once you get things working, it can be turned off again.
It needs to be enabled during the codec installation, and when making chages through the app.

1st thing to do after installation, is rightclick the Settings app shortcuts (2 apps) and choose Run as Administrator
That should invoke a Reset routine ineach app. After that completes, use the button to associate filetypes to the Windows players on the Help tab. This should get most of your files playing properly.
