Default 3870X2 problem with movie

Got a weird problem,

Right now, I use Ati 3870X2 to see what I type (duh!) and I can play games, no problem. But When I launch movie with creative reader or into winamp I only get a balck screen. Anybody experienced that before ? I am really confused as of what to do....

oh, I got the new drivers that were released a couple of days ago.

I gues it means it is a Avi read problem, ill try to update my reader codec and see.

Possibly a codec problem. Try installing this -> FFDShow MPEG-4 Video Decoder

Thanks, you , After a frustrating moment, I just went and updated the Dvix codec, works like a charm now. That 3870X2 @ 175 $ looks nice now :)
