  1. My os is wxp sp3 and I used to have vlc and it worked just fine till I got a virus and had to format/reinstall. Now the vlc has choppy video and audio. I have a 2.66 ghz processor with 1gb ram.

    I downloaded the files you said and it gave me another media player called media player classic- home cinema which shows the dvd movie backwards and upside down and vlc media player still has the same problem. VLC also had horizontal lines in the video.

    Are you telling us that this new player, the media player classic is playing movies in reverse? So you put in a DVD and push play and the movie starts from the end and works it way to the beginning? Well than I would dump the idea of using this new player of yours and if I were you, I would delete your VLC player and start over again. When everything is said and done, and you got a newly downloaded version of VLC player back up, you might want to go to the following site and download a codec pack, the following is the site I sometimes use to get my packs.

    Good luck to you................:)

    I am not telling you that the player starts from the end and plays to the beginning, it displays the screen like a mirror effect and the screen is upside down. But I will try what you said.

    I have read before about the mirror/upside down problem, which was down to a problem with an older version of the Divx codec, so the latest version should have been sorted out.

    Have also used that 'Classic media player', it worked well I found in Windows 7, 32 bit.
