      Help looking for a media suite to play my video libary

      Hi long story but two days ago i went to use media centre video libary to watch my videos as i do every so often. to find that half the video folders are empty. so i check all external hard drives to find that ALL video are there and playable. i am lookinf for a new way to play my videos simlar to media center. i have so far done this.

      * reset WMC
      * Removed all videos from WMC and re added them (done twice)
      * setup windows media Player this does the job but it is not as fluid as WMC
      * removed WMC completely and reinstalled

      any program must be free and fully tested. cheers Paul

      please see photos attached

      Capture 1-3 is WMC only Half Accessiable ( blank boxes say what Capture 2 Says) only folders with clips in have videos in them but all of them should have videos in iam stumped.

      Capture 5 is WMP with full Videos Accessiable

      Capture 6 is a snapshot of WMC showing only a few files

      There is a combined 11747hrs of Videos
