Cant see video with any player :(

Specs: Windows XP
OK folks, heres the deal. I have poured over many forums over the past few hours and still cant fix my problem. I can't see the video on downloaded clips or movies using any of the players I have installed WMP11, WInAmp 5.5, VLC, or Real Player. All I hear is sound. I have re-installed everything as well as getting the latest drivers for my video card (NVIDIA 6800). I have also cleaned out all codec packs and then reinstalled just the K-Lite mega whatever codec pack. Still nothing. I repeated this process with a few other highly recomended codec packs to no avail. I also went into the NVIDIA control panel to see if I could change any options for my monitor but that wasn't any help either. I always back up when using my cc cleaner so I tried re integrating those back-ups in case that was the problem...nope. I have always used WimAmp and cant remember exactly when it and my other players went to sound only as I dont use them every day. On site streaming video like You Tube is fine but saved clips will not play. Oh, and one more oddity; Quick Time has no problem showing videos in the format that it recognizes but thats a bit limited. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!!

Codecs was my first thought but as i mentioned, I tried a few different packs one at a time from http://www.free-codecs.com/download... , to no avail. I've tried a number of different clips and none will show video with any of my players using either k-lite full or XPcodec pack.

Sorry, didn't read your post properly.

Try Gspot to see if you have the correct codecs.

Thanks for the heads up on Gspot Clive. It's a cool little gadget indeed. Well, I ran it and it seems that I do have the codecs needed. I think I'm gonna try to uninstall my video card driver and install an older version. Maybe my "updated" driver is the problem. Knowing it's not a codec issue really helps me redirect my thought process (giving direction to my thought process is always a good thing, lol). Thanks again. I will keep this thread updated.
