5.572 No display when playing .avi, .mp4

Dear all
Need your valuable advice. I just install Winamp 5.572. When I run .mp4, .avi, the sound is ok, but there is no video display. I've reinstalled it several time.
I'm using lenovo x61 with XP sp3 OS. Only .wmv shows the video.
I haven't tried with other video format yet

Thanks a lot

We would need more information

If you're not a Winamp Pro registered user then you will need to install separate mpeg-4 (divx, xvid, mp4v, h263, h264, etc) splitters/codecs.
Start by installing the latest FFDShow (see above link).

If the problem persists, then we will need to see the requested info
(List of Plugins, dxdiag log, mediainfo logs for some of the problem videos, etc)

Dear sir
You're absolutely right. I misunderstood that the free version could directly able to watch other video format. As your suggestion, I've installed ffdshow, and I could see the .avi video, eventhough I still couldn't watch H264, adn 3GP video format.

Thanks again. Case closed
