Video Play Back

When trying to play back a video clip I can hear the video but I`m not able to see the video. Any advice or answers appreciated. This just started within the last week. I`m able to play YouTube videos but not video clips from other members. Not computer smart.


Original Post

I`ve tried updating. It shows all up to date. Already had VLC in my system. I`m only having issues with watching videos when logged on to the forum. Are there settings for the forum that I need to change. I did have a windows 10 update recently but it went well.

thank you

The best way to describe it when I click on the play button I have audio as to what is being said or shown but the area is blank with progress bar showing on bottom but not showing anything. I m able to watch a video that directs to You Tube with no problem. Can`t see a video from another forum member.


There are no settings within the forum to change to enable video playback. It is undoubtedly the Windoze 10 "update" that hosed things up for you. Check your video playback settings on your computer. You may not have the right codecs installed to play mp4 files.

I still run Windoze 7 Professional on all my computers and have not done a Windoze "update" in years. I have the Update Service turned off.

And everything always works fine...
