I have a computer running Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) and VLC media player. VLC was working fine. I got hit by lightning and had to put a new hard drive in and re-install Windows. I re-installed VLC media player and no matter what type of video (AVI, MP4, FLV, MKV and so on) I try to play the screen just comes up black.
I do get the sound and if I do a capture screen in VLC the picture DOES show the video that I am trying to watch. I can take the same files and play them on VLC on my second computer in my room and they play fine. I have had this computer for 2 years and have used VLC on it without problem for all these years. I tried installing Shark007’s Advanced Codec Pack and Shark007’s 64-bit Advanced Codec Pack to see if it was a codec problem and it did no good.
I am stumped as I have run VLC on 6 different computers over the last few years and have never had a problem with it. All are running Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) and the same version of VLC. Can anybody lead me in a direction to start look at what the problem might be. Any help would be greatly appreciated. VLC is the latest version also.
