video wont play?

I am having trouble getting winamp to play video files. It plays the audio, but no video. At first this sounds kinda like a missing codec problem, but i have the needed codecs, and all is well in other media players.

Any ideas what my problem could be? Perhaps a plugin is messing with it?

Sorry bout that...

Did a clean install, just to see if that works, but no good. Same problems.
Its using ffdshow filters.
It is giving me this problem with, so far, any video file i test it with. In this case, an .avi file.
I've attached the requested log files.

So... just .avi files then, or also .mpg, .wmv and others?

There's no ffdshow in the DirectShow Filters list in your dxdiag log.

Please reinstall the latest ffdshow
(see link in my first reply for download url)

Be sure to close any windows/programs like Firefox, Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player, Winamp first, because ffdshow might not be able to install properly if some system components are in use by other programs.

Make sure XviD, DivX, Other MPEG4, H.263, H.264/AVC, MPEG1, MPEG2, and any other video formats of your choice are checkmarked during installation (or enabled afterwards via: start -> programs > ffdshow -> video decoder config > codecs).

Alas, you also didn't include the full List Of Plugins (as directed), which should also include the list of file associations at the end (produced by clicking 'generate list of installed plugins & supported file extensions')... so I couldn't determine whether the DirectShow Decoder (in_dshow.dll) was correctly associated with AVI;MPEG;MPG;M2V and if the Windows Media Decoder (in_wm.dll) was correctly associated with WMV & ASF.

You also haven't told me the EXACT list of DirectShow Splitters and Filters that Winamp says it's using when you try to play one of the problem videos, eg.

For an AVI, you should see:

AVI Splitter
ffdshow Video Decoder
ffdshow Audio Decoder (might show some other audio decoder, if ffdshow audio decoder isn't associated)

Other than ffdshow not even being installed, the AVI problem could also possibly be related to this 3rd-party splitter you've installed:

Avi Splitter,0x00600001,1,1,avisplitter.ax

Find that file on your system (if it's not in c:\windows\system32 then it could be anywhere, maybe somewhere in Program Files), then unregister it as follows:

Start -> Run > cmd
Type: regsvr32 /u x:\path\to\avisplitter.ax

Hit Enter

Naturally, replace x:\path\to with the correct path.
If it is in the system32 dir, then you can just type:

regsvr32 /u avisplitter.ax

Then re-register the default Windows DirectX Splitter/Decoder, just incase:

regsvr32 quartz.dll


If there's problems with other formats (mpeg1/2, etc)
then let me know what splitters/filters Winamp is trying to use, and we'll take it from there....


But yeah, just try installing ffdshow first, before messing with regsvr32...

No, I am getting this problem with any video file i try in winamp. I haven't gotten Winamp to display video in about a week now...
Sorry, i assumed the file assoc.'s weren't necessary. I have attached the new plugin list, with assoc.'s listed.
As for the splitters, the .avi file displays what you wrote, while, for example, .mpeg displays an mpeg splitter, plus ffdshow.
I have installed ffdshow, and clicked yes to every check box in the installation regarding assoc.'s, just to be sure, and still no luck.
As for that particular avi splitter, i don't know where it is. Nothing is in the system32 folder that mentions .avi, besides 4 .dll's.
I will look for that splitter file later, but if that was the case, wouldnt it prevent the file from playing in my other media players? WMP and VLC work fine, but i would prefer winamp to be the primary media player.

Yeah, the list of plugins looks fine.
Hmm, I really aren't sure...
Can I see an updated dxdiag log please?

Does unchecking "Allow hardware video overlay" in "Winamp -> Prefs -> Video" make any difference?


@freakinacage
You need to provide all the same logs/info that spartanreborn did,
and preferably in a new thread instead of hijacking someone else's.
See the link in my first reply in this thread for details.

No, unchecking the overlay does nothing...

Here's the log, or by updated, do you mean after i remove that .avi splitter file? I haven't done that yet. Can't find it, and I am currently in class, so I will look for it more in depth later.
