Recently I've hit a problem with playing DivX and XVid files on a box recently updated to Windows 7 32-bit Home.
The WMP 12 plays the files normally until I try to navigate using the players progress bar. If I move it forward, the player freezes for a while (a minuet or so) and after that video seems ok, but sound is way out of sync. If then I move the bar back, it starts
playing video at a higher speed and sound is obviously out of sync again. I've tried to reinstall the codecs. Didn't help. The same files are playing on another box just fine. Also, I've noticed that when I open properties of the files in WMP, it shows blank
fields for audio and audeo codecs.
What can cause this kind of behavior? What can I do to troubleshoot the prob?
Thanks in advance.

I found a solution that worked for me. I installed a codec called K-Lite with AC3 Filter. The problem was occuring with Dvix/Xvid files that contained AC3 audio. It seems that windows media player default audio codec has some issues when you skip ahead
or reverse the video. Once I installed these codecs the problem is gone.
