Ogg-Vorbis Screwed Up EVERY OTHER CODEC

    I had Nimo Codec pack 5. Someone gave me an ".ogm" file. So I followed
    instructions I found here http://ld-anime.faireal.net/guide/ogm-en and
    downloaded the ogg vorbis package http://tobias.everwicked.com/. Now, NO
    ..AVI FILES WILL PLAY. I mean, accross all codecs, no avi files will play,
    none. Mpegs and .wmv's will run fine.

    I uninstalled Ogg Vorbis, they still wouldn't run. I uninstalled and
    reinstalled nimo. Still won't run. I went into my control panel and
    removed every codec, then reinstalled nimo again. Still won't run.

    I have win2k sp4. I'm guessing that piece of shit software ogg vorbis
    screwed something up in the registry. What do I change in there to fix?
    Someone please help.

    And when I say they won't play, I mean I get "Cannot play back file, the
    format is not supported." in WMP.

  3. Use Rollback

    What does that mean? W2K has no "rollback".

    Open an AVI with GSpot. Click the Render button.
    It'll tell you which DirectShow filters windows is using to play the
    file. There's probably a faulty filter in there.

    Use DirectShow Filter Manager to remove the offending filter.

    Thank you Will, I got GSpot and DirectShow Filter Manager, and with gspot I
    opened a file and clicked "Render". The status button at the bottom said
    "Rendering Failed" so I clicked on it and it says

    "DirectShow was unable to render the file. Following is the error it

    0x80040265: VFW_E_UNSUPPORTED_STREAM - Cannot play back the file. The format
    is not supported."

    I tried with many different avi's (which used to play before). How do I
    know from that which directx filter is causing the problem?

    This is true regardless of codec type avi. I tried it with a divx5 and a
    divx 3 file.

    Hmmm... that's strange. I'd recommend reinstalling whatever version of
    Windows Media Player you have.

    I tried your advice, and installed WMP 9. Still can't play avi files.
