windows 7 x64 - streaming mpg video does not play

It had been working for months, then suddenly, wmp 12 does not play select online mpg videos and only plays the audio. No errors, just a black screen.

I'm not sure what caused it.. the last things I did was install Evernote. Also a week prior I had tried to install an old Dazzle video campture software. I'm not sure, but recall wmp working after these installs.

The video loads, but I just get a black screen while it plays and the audio.

Hi cyberpine,

Does this only happen with .mpg and .mpeg video files?
