CRAM/MSVC videos do not play correctly

First, the specs:
- Win2K SP 4 ** FRESH INSTALL **
- nForce mainboard @ Win2K reference drivers 4.27
- ALL critical security fixes applied (DCOM, Sasser etc.)
- DirectX 9.0c

VGA is an ASUS v9520/TD GeForce FX 5200.
Drivers are detonators v61.77.

Settings in advanced video options:

[ ] Lock video aspect ratio
[X] Allow hardware video overlay
[X] Allow YV12 overlay mode
[ ] Synchronize video to screen refresh rate

+ Winamp 5.08d


The video file [sig.: vidsmsvc] can be downloaded free of charge here:
(I tried with Level 11, as I was stuck there )

First, I tried MPlayer plugin and got a a pulsating mass of all kinds of colors.
With the second try I made, I could crash Winamp completely.

Then, I removed .AVI extension of MPlayer settings and tried with internal DShow plugin.
Got same color mess.

[Compare this to my Indeo problem I have where MPlayer worked nicely, but DShow failed! However, this time BOTH MPlayer and DShow won't play the video correctly!]

Good ol' MediaPlayer 6.4 (!) works fine with this file.

Plays in Winamp for me.

Did you try disabling hardware overlay?

(It does play with hardware overlay for me, but maybe your graphics card/driver doesn't like 8-bit colour palettes (CRAM is using 8-bit colour afaik).)

... hence it should better be called CRAP than CRAM, huh?

All kidding aside, though ...
Thanks for the tip, but it didn't work.
Still color mess.
