MPlayer messed me up?

I was trying to figure out how to make mp4s work, and decided to take a look at "mplayer", as suggested by arienai fansubs. I did not particularly like it, so I uninstalled and restarted. Now many videos either appear black but with proper sound or simply don't play at all, whether I use Windows Media Player, Divx, or my favorite, media player classic. I tried uninstalling/reinstalling/updating all my codecs, but nothing seems to work. help please.

I have ffdshow 20051208. I use the codecs suggested by Animesuki exclusively. They've been all I needed until now.

May be a completely different problem, but when I try to install ffdshow, it fails to write the file "", though everything else writes fine.

Close all video and audio files playing when you're trying to install new ffdshow. If the problem still consists, a restart of your computer will do the trick, but before that uninstall ffdshow. After the restart, reinstall it. You need to have all other things mentioned in AnimeSuki's playback guide installed so that *all* of your anime will work.

About DivX player... that player is only meant to play DivX files and it can handle XviD... and not much else. I suggest you try either the already mentioned Media Player Classic which is described in AnimeSuki's Playback guide or Zoomplayer (the standard version will do). You can also try VLC player (also linked in AnimeSuki's guide) which uses its own media filters and doesn't require Haali's Matroska Splitter or ffdshow.

What i find a little wierd is that mplayer has its own internal codecs. I am wondering why it would brake the rest of his codecs.

I don't think that mplayer actually even does anything when it's installed... no registry tinkering or anything of the sort, as far as I know...

So, yes, that is very strange.

Another common problem I've heard is that Nero's MP4 splitter takes priority over the Haali splitter and it has problems parsing MP4 files from fansubbing groups. If you have Nero installed, you will want to disable that splitter. Locate the file "", (usually in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Ahead\DSFilter), then deregsiter it using regsvr32.

For example, assuming the location above, you will need to type the following either at a command prompt or in Start/Run:

regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Ahead\DSFilter\"

You need the quotes because the pathname has spaces in it.

Then, if you haven't done so already, install the Haali Splitter to enable MP4 support (which is turned on by default).

Then try using MPC again to open that file.

Good luck!
