    I hava installated VLC Media Player on my laptop which has Windows Vista
    and when I trey to play a movie like .AVI or .OGM I can't get any
    video and only the audio.
    Windows Media Player plays the .AVI file normally with video
    and sound.

    So is there a Codec I didn't install? I have a Windows Vista Codec
    package which installated perfectly...

    no installing codecs won't help.
    VLC is self reliant.

    There is this from the VLC site (Partial listing):

    Changes between 0.8.6b and 0.8.6c:
    ----------------------------------

    Various bugfixes, notably:
    * Windows Vista compatibility
    It looks like 0.8.6C is the version to try with Vista.
