My movies play upside down!

  1. Okay this is weird.....

    I play any movie files through Winamp because in Windows Media player it is jumpy and the sound keeps making this CAACSSHHHH sound every so often.

    Quicktime is okay but wont play every file format and when it goes to update says it cant find various things on the server.

    So back to winamp.....

    I downloaded a couple of movies, one a *.asf and one an *.avi. The Asf one plays upside down and backwards. The avi wont play at all but i think i need a DivX codec.

    Even a Mpeg (which all the others i have play fine) played backwards and upside down.

    If i play these files in Windows Media player it plays the right way up etc just badly. If i upgrade Windows media player it makes it worse.

    Any suggestions.

    You know it's coming,

    they played right side up, up here ...

    so better turn the monitor upside down and you'll
    be oriented the same way as the author.

    i thought you would have figured it out, if you're watching "those" movies that i sent you, you are watching it the correct way
