My OS is Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit. I have a few video files in the format of MPEG. Some are 320x240 frame size and other are 720x576.
Both are .MPG extensions.
The default Windows Media Player (I could not figure out the Version) plays 720 seamlessly. However when I play MPG that is 320 only audio is heard. Video is blank.
This is strange as I think default Windows Media Player should be able to play MPG with lower resolution without any add on.
I tried a third party codecs like media.player.codec.pack.v4.5.2.setup.exe but it did not help.
I am not too sure why this issue occurs and what's the fix now.
I do have VLC player and it has no issues playing both these types. However I would prefer to fix the issue with Windows Media Player as it's my favorite app.
Also just note that I have Windows XP in VMWare Player Virtual Machine. The same MPG file (320x240) is played by WMP v9 in XP seamlessly without any issues.
I installed K-Lite_Codec_Pack_1475_Mega.exe but it did not help.
