When played SVCD on Windows Media Player, the images were stretched vertically

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

When opening up a SVCD file (made by Pinnacles DV) with Windows Media Player from XP, it first attempts to download some codec from the Internet. When failed to do so, then it start to play with the images stretching 30-40% vertically.(e.g. The images show that my 12 year old son looks tall like an adult. If that were real, he will be playing in the NBA in a few years). Any suggestions? Thanks

Get the "Nimo Codec Pack" from: http://www.divx-digest.com/software/nimo_pack.html....or look for it somewhere else. After i installed it all my problems had disappeared. I use XP too.Wish you all the best.
