playing m3u file on Windows Media Player

Q: playing m3u file on Windows Media Player

In the past I have created numerous m3u files to play an mp3 file on Windows Media Player and they all have worked well. Today, however, I created one just the same way and when I play it I get the message:
"Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file."

When I check the help file for the file types that are supported I find that it does support m3u and mp3 files.

Does anyone have any help for me to know how to fix this?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello.
A year ago, a random day, I suddenly started to face a problem with playing sound files:

This error message kept popping up when trying to play any type of sound file. (mp3, avi, m4a, you name it)
When trying it with another media player (VLC Media Player), no error appeared, but no sound either (just a blank screen and the play button doing nothing)
Playing video files (mp4, avi, flv, ...) did show the video, but no sound at all.
I tried numerous things like installing codec packs like K-Lite, with no positive results.
After some searching , I did find a "fix" by going into the settings of the Playback devices and checking disable all sound effects, however I think this isn't a significant fix and worse issues are behind this.
(I haven't actually thought about posting a thread about this the entire year )

I recently tried to find a better fix for this. The integrated Windows problem solvers does nothing productive in this situation. It never find any problems.
I did try to restore WMP settings to default, no difference either.

As far as I can remember, this issue arose a month or so after I updated my Realtek HD Audio drivers. That is why I blame that. I couldn't roll it back, but I managed to find the "stock" drivers for my PC model on the manufacturer's site (eMachines model ET1870; bought back in 2011), but that did not solve anything either.
Also, because of this I doubt if updating audio drivers is a very good idea... I think it destabil... Read more

A:Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file

If it was a driver issue, you would have the issue as soon as you started the PC, not a month later. Create a manual System Restore point (System Restore) and update your drivers.

If it gets worse, roll back the drivers or restore the system with the manual restore point you just created. After all, You can still try to install even an older driver.

I'd like to know why windows media player won't play my media files after a reboot. Didn't change codecs. Didn't delete anything.

I did try to restore cos I suddenly couldn't go online but the restore said that it didn't work so I assume nothing was changed

Same exact file, same folder, now won't play.

Oh, and Chrome now won't open. Makes the little "timer" spinny icon thing, then that stops, program isn't open. I know that's a different problem but it started at the same time

Thanks for any help

Ok so Im getting this problem with Windows Media Player. Ive never really bothered with this problem untill now (I use LimeWire to play music instead). But I want to start useing it, but I get that annoying message when I try and play a song.

I looked for a solution in the 'Web Help' option, but I didnt find a definate answer to my problem. It said that another program has changed the files or something. This had never happened before I got LimeWire, so Im thinking LimeWire has messed the files around, but because it wasnt a direct answer to my problem, I thought maybe its somthing else. I dont want to get rid of LimeWire, because thats what I use to download my music, and It may not fix the problem. :/

I hope thats all the information needed.

A:Windows Media Player Playing DVD's

The message is kind of strange -- but the bottom line is that Windows Media Player has never come with the mpeg-2 decoder needed for playing DVDs.

For this you must have a 3rd party player installed such as PowerDVD-- or if you don't care about using WMP -- you can view just about anything in VLC: >>

To check whether Windows already has the required decoder, use this:

I have a Windows 7 system that is running all Windows Updates available as on today. I assume it is running the latest edition of WMP; but, I can see no way of determining the version. It plays MTS (movies made on a Panasonic Camcorder) files just fine.

Now the problem:

I have another system here running WinXP with all updates available for it as of today. Again, I cannot determine which version of WMP. It will not play MTS files. It is running a Intel Core 2 CPU 6300 $ 1.86 GHz and 2 Gigs of RAM. It stops at a screen that says it is loading but remains black indefinitely with no progress indicator.

Any advice?

Am I just going to have to go to Win7? I know there are other programs that probably will play MTS; but, it would be nice if I could get WMP to do it without having to go to Win7.

Have you tried the free "Jet Player" - there's not much it won't play or burn and it will run circles around WMP.

Hope this helps as it seems you have found what others have - (it may be awhile before Microsoft decides to deal with this issue)

Almost none of my videos will play anymore after installing this upgrade. Videos start and then don't actually play. I just see a screen still and I can jump around through the frames. Some videos like AVI files that I open show up as music and again, will not play.

Any idea what is going on here?

Hello all,

I am having alot of problems with WMP, I have various amounts of video clips, some work perfectly, and a few others don't. Thing is, is I formatted my PC not long ago, and i had my media saved on my xtra drive, and before i formatted, everything worked perfectly. Now, after formatting and putting all my media back on, certain clips won't play properly.

The audio will play, but the video doesnt show. I went on the windows support site, found alot of solutions, but not for WMP 10, and all the solutions for that version arnt working.

I tryed reinstalling,updating e.tc. but still, no luck.

Anyone have any idea of what I can do, any help is greatly appreciated

Hey. I just installed XP a couple weeks ago, and all of a sudden WMP11 isn't playing any sound when I play DVD's anymore. These are all commercial DVD's I'm trying to play. Other sound and video files work fine, but DVD playback has no sound. I've tried this on a variety of discs with no luck. What the hell happened and how do I fix it?

Note: I already uninstalled and reinstalled WMP.
 

A:No Sound when playing DVD's with Windows Media Player 11

Well, it's still not working with WMP after re-installing my sound drivers, but I just downloaded VLC and it appears to work with that, so whatever I guess.

Welcome to SF arkasharma

Do you have any codec packs installed? If yes which one?

We usually suggest Sharks007's codecs. You can get it from here: Download Windows 7 Codecs 3.6.8 - FileHippo.com

Some steps that you may need to follow after installation of Sharks codecs.
Click on the
Scroll down to Shark007s codecs folder.
Expand it and select the settings application by right click run as administrator button.
On the bottom click on Shark007 SUGGESTED settings.
Lastly you will get a confirmation dialogue that all the videos will open with windows media player (but actually they will open with other players as well)
Attached is a picture as reference.

And some prefer the Klite Codec pack from this link: Download K-Lite Codec Pack 8.92 (Full) - FileHippo.com with basic next next next installation steps.

Install either of it but make sure you've removed any other codec packs previously installed.

Let us know how it goes.

Hi,
I captured an AVI file from my DVD player using my video card. My Real Player and Windows Media Player won't place this DVD clip. Someone said I need codecs.
1. what are they?
2. where to get them?
3. how to use that to convert the file to some other format?
4. what formats do Real Player and Windows Media Player support?
4a. Is there another downloadable DVD player that will play the AVI file as is?
5. I also tried to burn this AVI file using Nero but when I tried to drag the file to the proper place, I encountered problems. What could be the issue here?
6. I have been told in another forum that my CD burner can burn a DVD file on DVD media if the format is proper. What format is needed? Is this another codec issue? (Nero says it needs AVI and that is what my file is).
Thanks

I listen to talk radio online. I had been listening to KFI AM640 for quite some time, then all of a sudden was not able to listen to it.

Their support staff were not able to help, claiming thousands of people are still listening, my isp was not able to help claiming they are able to access it. I checked my settings with them and apparantly everything is on the right setting. According to them, I should be able to listen.

I can hear streaming from every other radio station I attempt to connect to. The only one I can't hear is KFI.

I have window XP home, I have Media player 10 and there is over 512mb of ram in my system.

Like I said, I was able to listen then two weeks ago, it wouldn't connect.
When I try to access this through media player (Rather than direct thru the site) This is the error message I get

"Windows Media Player cannot play the file because a network error occurred. The server might not be available. Verify that you are connected to the network and that your proxy settings are correct."

Previously, when connecting thru the media player I would get "buffering" then it would start playing.. I don't get the "buffering" message now. All it does is show as if it's playing, then a minute or so later, I get that message. It doesn't play at all though.

I have checked my settings with my ISP, that is all correct. I've updated codecs, that made no difference.

Unfortunately, being a new user I can't p... Read more

My uncle got DSL a couple of months ago and I've downloaded several large and small video clips and saved them to cd-rw's so that I could bring them home and put them on my computer, but I've encountered a problem when I try to view some of the clips. Some clips say ANOBOLIC when I try to open them and they won't play on either my laptop or my desktop pc, but I can open and view them fine on my uncle's computer. What do I need to download to fix this problem?

The other problem that I am having is that I saved some video clips that range from 15 to 30 minutes, and when I put the cd in either my laptop or desktop pc a couple of the clips say that they are 1 or 2 minutes when they are really 15 to 30 minute clips. I try to play them and they play for 1 or 2 minutes pause at the end and then move to the next clip, and when I fast forward the clip I am able to see some more of what wasn't shown in the first 1 or 2 minutes but it won't finish playing the whole clip. Again, I am able to view all of the clips perfectly on my uncle's computer.

At first I thought that the problem was with the cd-rw's, but since they work fine on my uncle's computer I have to believe that it is a problem with the media player. I've tried playing them with Realplayer and a couple other media players, but I keep having the same problem. I think that the Windows Media Player needs something downloaded, but I don't no what to download. Both my ... Read more
