    This is not really a huge problem, but anywone knows why avi files play videos upside down in winamp??? I've tried this with several computers and its the same...anyone knows why?? Just out of curiosity...

    Usually it happens due to installing incompatible codecs.........

    Wouldnt that reduce the quality atleast??

    Well .. incompatible codec can cause many probs .. like less quality playback, no playback or faulty playback like the avi's playing upside down and all.... I guess u r using a winamp version prior to 5.05. They had a bug in the prior versions( bug in using directshow) and they fixed that in winamp5.05. So get winamp 5.05 and u would be able to play the files pretty well ..

    Get a post-June version of Xvid, and upgrade to the newest DiVX (get the download link from google if u dont know)..... it should solve ur problem...btw,,,, have u experienced this prob in any player other than winamp.......????????
