Windows 7: AVI movie issues

AVI movie issues

Hi there. I just freshly installed Windows 7 retail from a previous beta build and am in the process of getting everything tweaked and I'm having a problem with some movies that previously played before my format. Previously I was using the Combined community codec pack, I may have had KLM pack as well, and I know I had Divx. Anyways, movies that worked before aren't working now even though I've downloaded the same codec packs. I've included a screenshot from a program that gives greater details about movies and it shows I have 2 codecs on this machine that should be able to play it, but I'm only getting video with no sound.

Here's the enhanced info on the file.

Uninstall all of your codec's restart, install and only install a fresh CCCP and try it.

Hello Symz, welcome to windows 7 forums.
We have a member that goes by the handle "Orbital Shark" and he has put together an excellent all in 1 codec pack. Let me search and I'll post the link.

Codec pack

Hello Symz, we have an expert on video and he has put together a codec pack specifically for Windows 7, I'm attaching this link so that you can look it over.

Hi guys, thanks for the help. Sorry for the late reply but I was at work. I tried the shark pack and that also didn't work.

I was running Win 7 beta build 7100 and formerly had the CCCP pack installed, vlc and divx and everything worked fine.

I'm now on Win 7 64 bit and used the same pack and things didn't work. Is it because I'm running the 64 bit version now? I have the shark pack installed too and that still wasn't working. Someone else also previously mentioned on another site to use a registry cleaner, which I also tried and I fear it may have made it worse.

Anyways, I used a program called G-spot and it says I have 2 available codecs to decompress the files with, yet my movies still either have no sound, some sound, but it goes from normal to quiet, or it sounds like it's under water or in a tin can lol.

Did using the reg cleaner do any harm?

I also got a program named Sherlock that shows all my codecs, I will post a link once I get a screenshot and see if that tells you guys anything.

Hmm, ok I may have had some other Shark x54 tools pack installed. I've uninstalled all the other codecs and will try the shark pack. I hope it works and that using the registry cleaner didn't muck things up.
