What file extension, format and decoder (DirectShow Filter)?

eg: .MPG | MPEG-2 | Elecard MPEG-2 Decoder

You can find out what DShow Filter is being used via File Info (Alt+3)

There's been a few other reports of this happening, but we weren't able to preproduce the problem. At a guess, the problem possibly lies with an old/funky/crappy decoder.

Try using ffdshow instead.

avi problem

I too am having a problem with videos playing upside down and mirrored. It just recently began to occur, and happens in Winamp as well as Windows Media Player (which i tried as a solution). I've made sure I have the most up to date versions of these programs and am still having the problem. It only seems to occur with AVI's though. I downloaded ffdshow as instructed in the posts above, but am not sure if I am using the program correctly. I've also checked the ffdshow website to looks for a guide on using it, but was unable to locate one... Please help me if you can.
