I am having trouble with video playback on a whole bunch of visual novels. Many visual novels just show a black screen or skip the video, and some even crash. I don't have this problem with any other video games or software.

Example of a game that skips videos: link

This one is only playable if I rename the folder the videos are in.

A quick Google search said to install CCCP or K-Lite, but neither made any difference.

Information about your computer would be useful

Having your OS (which most likely has to be Windows Vista or later, would not bet on XP) updated until there are no updates (that can take a few many restarts and re-searches) should suffice. Of course, deleting standard software is never recommended, even if you never use Windows Media Player (I simply use mpc-hc).

If the problem may be solved by renaming the folder, either the folder has problematic character (and so can a file) or the path is too long. My humble guess is that anything but Latin script and slashes can cause problems.

As always, even if one has the non-Japanese version, setting locale (display of non-unicode characters) to Japanese is better done than not.
