WMP used to work perfectly with AVI files. I could watch movies, cartoons, whatever with no problems. Then a couple days ago, it happened. I double clicked on an AVI and WMP started up but horrible screeching sounds came from the speakers and when the video was visible it was playing very slowly.
I tried reloading the DIVX and XVid codecs. Then I tried removing WMP, rebooting and then reloading WMP but that didn't help.
DIVX player works fine.
Any changes to my system? I re-installed DVD Styler and Sothing Movie DVD Maker. I had them installed before with no issues but have reinstalled Win 7 so had to reinstall those programs when I wanted to create DVD.
