    When I try to play a movie on VLC player it just plays audio and the screen is left grey. It just doesn't show the movie.

    I have installed k-lite codec pack. Everything works fine with Media Player Classic.

    I want to use VLC player for a while... please help me solve this problem.
    Here is the screen shot when I play a movie... only audio plays.

    May be you disable the video.
    Go to Settings ->Preferences -> Video then check the Advenced options in the bottom of the right.Then see if Enable video is checked.
    Just like this - http://img249.imageshack.us/img249/9340/vlzzzza5.jpg

    Try changing the video output module. I have mine set to OpenGL, some others didnt work for me under vista.

    Also I would highly recommend you install the cccp

    http://www.cccp-project.net/

    Klite pack is good but cccp allows VLC to pretty much play any video thrown at it.
    Also download AC3 Filter and Xvid standalone codec.

    Excuse Me?
    Didn't Think So!

    I thought the idea of VLC was that it does not need codecs !

    I understand that it has built in filters so that it can play the video files.

    So how would loading more codecs help VLC play more files ?

    Just as an aside I also have some videos that VLC will not play.

    All i ever need is the latest version of xvid installed
    the latest ac3filter
    the latest corecodec and
    haali media splitter.

    With that you should have no problem playing
    anything.

    I never install any of these codec packs, whats the point?
