    Have you tried programs like VLC? An excellent free video player that supports many formats.

    waynegibns, the OP stated that videos would play correctly in the browser...



    • Which file types are not playing? mpg, mp4, ...?
    • Does none of these files work, or are some files of that type working correctly?
    • In which programs have you tried?
