Codecs Audio codec playing online videos (1 Viewer)

Hello there,

I seem to have a problem with my codecs. My DVD's, mkv's everything is playing fine. But now I've installed the OnlineVideos plugin.

Some movieclips are working fine except the one's on youtube. So i guess it has something to do with flv files. It says that it can't play cause it has an error in the audio codec. I installed an flvsplitter, but that did not seem to do the trick.

Is there anyone out there who had the same problems, or who can help me with mine? :D

Same here

I've the same problem. Some videos load ok, others hang for ages before giving me the Audio Codec dialogue box.

Anyone know of a fix?

    I had this problem and fixed it.
    For some reason medialooks quicktime directshow filter wasnt working.
    The error is "unable to play video, audio codec:"
    Try googling "Quicktime alternative 290" or "quicktime alternative lite"
