August 14, 2015 Leave a comment Quick fix for what's ailing your PC video player By Kevin Downey, Komando.com PHOTO COURTESY OF SHUTTERSTOCK If you've ever wondered why a video that's playing on your computer suddenly loses sound, or it won't move when you click the start button, there's a pretty good chance you won't figure it out on your own. You might want to try the old standby: Reboot your computer, then try again.Although, there is a better solution. It's called VideoInspector and it scans your computer to figure out why it's not playing correctly. That includes scanning through codecs to find the problem. Codecs are compressed files where a movie, for example, is compressed into a much smaller file that will play on your computer. VideoInspector will also prompt you to add in codecs that will increase the quality of the videos you are playing.Once downloaded, VideoInspector runs on your computer screen. Start playing a video on VideoInspector by using the Browse key to find a video on your computer, or stick in a DVD. VideoInspector will display the quality of the video and the audio, and it'll alert you if there are problems.Download instructionsClick on the blue link below to start the download.
