Maybe you might need the correct codec for it.

the video that i am watching is avi and mpeg files i have apack on my computer that plays all codecs it plays them but the picture comes up the only way i can describe it is that think of how many cubes ther is on a monitor to make apicture theres probaly thousends of little cubes all these cubes make up yuor picture you see instead of the cubes being small they come up larger than normal hence making the pic blury and not very watchable hope who ever reads this can follow what im trying to say sorry if you can not any more help any one any tips on solving this i think it is a setting somewhere that i have to change to make may be the reslution smaller but i dont know even how to do that still learning the basics of the computer.

i had that on mine download the codec pack from the link on here that will sort it out.

Or download divx

click here

But make sure you dont install both as the fdd show codec interferes with divx but i would recommend divx it will sort it.
