VLC + Nvidia = Teh Porblem?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok so here's whats going on. I installed the latest VLC on my XP x64 Machine (old one.) it had the following

AMD Athalon 64 3000+
eVGA 6600 Ultra (Doom 3 edition)

Since then I've upgraded to the specs below and decided to try VLC again. They both give me the same problem and leave me without a clue as to what the problem is. VLC Worked for me for about a week before it screwed up again. First here's the problem (which happens on both machines.) Whenever I view a video file (regardless of extension) I get a brown screen where the movie should be (in the correct resolution) and all I get is audio. Freakin eh! Now I've made sure that the only monitor I'm using is monitor one and set to primary. My buddy said it has something to do with the nvidia drivers I'm using. Now on my old machine I used the latest (169.?? I think) and on my new machine I use the 175 beta drivers.

Well it might not be a fix more than a workaround but have you tried another media player?
Media player classic fills the gaps nicely where VLC or WMP fail. http://www.start64.com/index.php?opt...1376&Itemid=72

Also are you sure the needed codecs are installed? I use the Vista Codec Package 4.65. http://downloads.guru3d.com/Vista-Co...load-1913.html

Hopefully it's just a simple problem....

I don't want a workaround is the thing. But it's highly unusual that what was once playing in VLC would stop working the next day with me never patching or working on anything. I literally woke up one morning to have VLC fail on me.

Try changing the video output module in VLC's preferences.

Try and disable overlay video output. It will reduce the performance, but it's more compatible with older cards.

Ctrl+S > Video > (toggle) Overlay Video Input
