    VLC Problem - No picture, only sound

    Hi, I know there are a lot of threads touching on this subject but I am extremely frustrated as I cannot find any answers.

    I am trying to play a .avi (divx) movie on VLC, I have installed it correctly, but when I try to play the file I just hear sound no picture. It does the same with Totem Movie Player also

    Is there something I have missed here or does someone have some advice regarding this issue?

    Thanks in advance

    Kind Regards
    Martin

    Its a codec pack, you will be able to play more formats of audio and video.
