I'm running WinXP Pro SP2. I have Windows Media Player ver 11 on
three computers. On one of them it works just fine. On the other two
it opens an .avi file but I only get sound and curvy waves where the
video should be. No video.

Any one know the problem please? Do I need a video codec and if so
which one?

Thanks

Henry

My advice would be to download Shark codec. Delete all of your other codecs
and install Shark. Problem solved.
