Little trouble with some games - coolzire - 04-25-2012 10:34 AM
I am a avid player of the fallout 3 and fallout new vegas and recently reinstalled window on a bigger hard drive on my laptop. I ran into issue where the in-game radio. Before the win7 codec i had no issue and after removing them the radio worked again. Both game are listed as dont use in ffdshow setting. The actual sound file appear to be mp3. I remember having no issue before while using an older version of win7 codec. The issue occur with or without the x64 component. I have win7 64 bit Professional and i mostly use the codec for thumbnail. Is there another codec that could potentially interfere with the games?

ffdshow is known to cause problems with this game.
you should 1st check Control Panel | Programs and Features to see if ffdshow is listed.
If it is listed, uninstall it followed by using the [Reset All] button in the Settings Application.
2nd, search the \Windows folder for ffdshow.ax
if it exists delete it and reboot your system
test at tthis point - still having problems?
on the Misc TAB is a checkbox to disable ffdshow completely

Thank you for your suggestion, I tried both of them and the problem was still there. I didn't notice those disable button earlier so i tried the other one. Disabling Lav splitter fixed my issue with ffdshow enabled. After further thinkering I unchecked mp2,mp3 and wav from the lav splitter window and everything is working fine. Look like ffdshow isnt the issue this time.
