eedcam that depends. Installed latest DivX player and comes with codecs and another bunch of features. Then WMP refused to play a type of AVI from my camera. Puzzled for a while then uninstalled the DivX codecs package and then WMP played the AVI files OK. Have informed DivX of problem and await an answer. Media Player Classic would also not play these files until I deleted the DivX codecs.

Run dxdiag and let it load. Click on the help tab to run the diagnostic tool. See if there are any problems showing.
