Hi punkguy,

I've had the same kind of audio problem with a few divx files I've downloaded through file-sharing programs.

I think it's because most file's audio is usually encoded in mp3 format - which is fine for WMP. But it seems that some recent files have been encoded using Dolby 5.1. If you have a seperate soundcard that supports Dolby, then that should solve the problem.

But if you have an embedded soundchip on your mainboard (like me) then there's nothing you can really do about it until the chipset maker brings out drivers with Dolby support.

As regards the video problem, all I can suggest is that you run a virus and trojan check to make sure that the 'codec' you installed wasn't something else.

Plus you could try reinstalling/upgrading WMP (I think it's up to version 8 now) and reinstalling/updating your graphics card and audio drivers.

Hope this is some help - I know how frustrating it is to dl a file, then not be able to watch it.

Best Regards
Kit
