Window Media Player 10 and MSN Music

Q: Window Media Player 10 and MSN Music

I can't sample music clips OR purchase any songs from MSN Music. When I click on the sample or purchase links, the page just sits there. Nothing. I've tried accessing music.msn.com via WMP10, IE, and MSN Premium. None of them work. Running Windows XP Home Edition, latest version of Media Player. I've tried turning off ALL security: Windows Firewall, Norton Internet Security, Spywareblaster. Still nothing. I can play music clips from other multimedia sites: CDNOW, iTunes, Songtouch, even Wal-Mart Music Downloads! I can also play streaming video clips from anywhere, including MSN Video. Sound and all. Go figure.

I've tried getting help from MSN Tech Support, but they can't determine what's wrong. So, thought I'd go to the experts!

Any suggestions you might have would be appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Window Media Player 10 and MSN Music

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.)

A: Window Media Player 10 and MSN Music

Hello, anyone can help?

I further discovered that the reason WMP10 doesn't play clips is because the install never downloaded and installed the Microsoft Music Assistant "helper" program!!! I tried going directly to the support site where I could d/l this file but when I click to install from the web page, nothing happens.

Does anyone know of an alternate place I can find this little program to d/l and install???

I have my music files in the Windows Media Player where I rip and burn CDs. However, I would like to copy some of the music files into a zip drive. I know how to transfer other files but have not done it with a CD. How can I do that? And, can I play the file straight from the zip drive? Or do I need load the Windows Media Player program in order to be able to work with the CDs?
 

A:Copying Music From Window Media Player to a Zip Drive

you should be able to copy them over just like any other file. when you want to play them, all you have to do is to navigate to the zip drive from within the media player. you do not have to install anything special.

Hi: I was trying to record from a radio station a recording of someone I know who has written a music piece and by mistake I saw urge and downloaded the program. When I realized I did not want this program, I deleted it. There was a message not to do it--that it would block other users from logging onto the computer (Which is a violation of the anti-trust laws) however, I did not listen and deleted the entire program from the program files.

Hi Everyone,

I am in the process of organising a playlist of music videos for my works Christmas Party. This year I want to do something really special in the form of streaming the music videos from one (host) computer to several (guest) computers using VLC Media Player.

Here is a link to the method that I am using to Stream music videos -

https://www.evernote.com/shard/s278...999ab741c93f/5e344d246d17fcd8415e999e4cb175b1

I have decided on the HTTP method of streaming because this appears to be relatively simple to setup, and effective for reaching multiple clients.

However immediately I have noticed a number of caveats -

1). Media doesn't always play at the same time on all clients. I would like all music videos to play in sync (ignoring potential network 'lag' issues)

2). VLC gets stuck with the Playlist of music videos that I have created; it plays the first music video on each of the clients, but once the first music video comes to an end VLC stops playing altogether.

* In some instances it just stops, and provides no on screen messages
** In other instances it pops up a box which I have come to believe is related to missing codecs (even though the 'server' and all 'clients' have exactly the same codec packs installed).

I am looking for some tips on the optimum way to stream music videos (in a variety of formats, e.g.: avi, flv, mpg, mpeg). Ideally I need to setup several hours of music videos and just hit the 'play button&... Read more

I have just bought on-line, will only transfer music files with Windows Media Player 10.   The instructions for the music player, Samsung YP-Z5, says that you can only transfer files to the player when Windows Media Player 10 is installed on the pc, which you have to instal with the installation CD.  I have Windows Media Player 11 and Media Monkey on my pc, that I use for my other music player and Windows Media Player 12 and Media Monkey on my laptop.  Does that mean that the version 11, I have on my pc will be rolled back to 10 then? isn't that going to mess up my music.  I don't understand why it is an older version of Windows Media Player as I can't use it on my laptop.

I have a lot of music on my computer, and I share it to a SoundBridge device. This works well WHEN it works. I have two problems.
1 The Media player loses the library and has to rebuild it frequently.
2 After a few days or so, it prohibits me from sharing media. When I click on Media Sharing, it displays an error message about sharing being turned off. When I go to web help, it tells me to start the Media Sharing Service, but when I look, it has been started. It also tells me to check ownership of the media database, but that is OK as well. I can get it to start over by uninstalling the media player and then re-installing it, but this gets to be a drag very quickly.
Can anyone help? Thanks very much.

Hi,

When I use WMP 11, I tend to drop folders of files onto the RH side Now Playing window. These are usually audio books with multiple small files. Anyway, I used to be able to make WMP open with the Now Playing window, but more recent versions (10, 11) seem only to open on Library. I know it's no big deal to click the tab, but can I set WMP to always open on the Now Playing window?

A:Need Help with Music Files (Media Player

Are the songs listed in your playlist the ones that you tried to delete? Is the playlist an older one, created before you deleted the music?

You said you tried to delete a bunch of music. Did it actually delete?

If the songs were deleted WMP cannot find it in the location it was in when you created the playlist.

Example: If the music was originally in Folder A and you created a playlist/imported music to WMP from Folder A, they would play.

If you delete the music from Folder A (or move it to another folder) WMP is still pointing to Folder A but cannot play what is not there.

If your music is still in the folder I don't know what to tell you.

Is real player the same thing as windows media player? If they are the same thing which one is better?
 

A:real player or window media player?

Real Player (aka Real Obnoxious) is not the same as Windows Media Player. There are certain files that will only play on Real Player and certain Files that will only play on Windows Media Player.

If you are going to install Real Player I suggest that you print out the instructions here;
http://home.comcast.net/~leeandheather/tutorials/realone.htm

refer to the instructions when installing Real Player. Although these instructions are not for the current Real Player version there is still enough in the instructions as what to disable, to keep Real Player usable, but stop it from bugging you all the time.

If real player and windows media player do the same thing which one is better?

A:Real Player Or Window Media Player

RealPlayer can play most of the formats that WMP can, plus some of it's own (ie formats created by the RealPlayer developer) which WMP can't play.

However, although RealPlayer plays more formats and you need it for some websites which stream audi/video content only in RealPlayer's native formats, It can be somewhat of annoyance when it's installed -- always popping up nag-screens to buy the 'pro' version etc. Something which WMP never does.

In essence, if you want all video and audio formats covered, you need them both. My policy is to manage with Windows Media Player. I just avoid using websites with video/audio content that need RealPlayer.

When I look at properties on the music cd it says the whole music cd is only 18kb.
But the ripped files are 39.9 mb. What's up with this? The MP3 are supposed to be smaller. I even tried to copy the music cd to a folder to check the size, but it was the same thing. Plus, they wouldn't play after I took out the music cd out of the cd rom.

A:Windows Media Player does not play music CDs

mikim,

This may be simple but sometimes the simple things are what we miss. Have you tried going to the tools menu and then to options, from there "file types" tab, and make sure that the "music cd playback" is checked, if it is Im not sure what it could be. One thing about that message, if indicates to me that evertime you insert a cd into your machine it searches the internet for something it doesn't need to. One more thing, check the media library tab in the same menu and make sure that the "update my music files" option is unchecked. Just an option you might try.

At least that is what is going on with the AVI files.

So is there any way to do this?

I used to use WMP a lot because I like how it automatically organized my music then I started using Zune to play music but not organize and now I want to use the Windows 8 Music app and am running into some problems.

I have a subscription to Xbox Music and apparently it looked at my playlist and music on my desktop and sent them to my Xbox Music so it can stream the songs from Microsofts server to my laptop and Xbox which I like. The problem is it is redownloading all the MP3's I have as DRM protected WMA files of a lower bit rate often and then the DRM doesn't update and I can't play the songs even though the mp3's are perfectly fine.

1. How can I get it to stop downloading the drm protected wma files of mp3's on my desktop and have the Music App play the mp3's instead?

2. Can someone clear up how the system picks up my mp3's and adds them to a list that I can stream to my Xbox Music devices? Does it only pickup play list or all of my music>

3. Is it possible to have mixed play list with mp3's and wma

A:Windows Media Player 11 and sharing my music

Why don't you try sharing the files on the network. If your computer is networked properly then they should show up in network places. Right click the file, then click on the sharing tab and click share on network. (These instructions might be wrong as im not booted in windows right now.) If they are all in the same directory, i.e. My Music, then you can just click play all when you navigate to the folder in My Network Places. Alternatively you could select the files you want right click them and click play with windows media player.

You might want to re-install DirectX, as it appears that the virus has messed with DirextX on your system.After installation is complete run dxdiag.http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en

Hello,
I'm not able to play music on the Windows Media Player on my HP Envy laptop, and I was wondering if you could help.  The Media Player was working fine the last time I used it - a week or so ago - and the audio is ok - I can still play CDs &
DVDs.  When I click on a song from my library I receive the error: "Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file."  I tried to troubleshoot the problem and then tried a few solutions I saw online, but haven't had
any luck.  It's a WMP 12 for Windows 7.  Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks,
Jesse

Did your computer come with a disk from the motherboard manufacturer?? After you reformatted your hard drive, did you install the drivers for the board from that disk??

Hello,

I have a windows xp pro sp3 with all updates (as far as i know), 2 gb ram, 320 gig hard drive, radeon ati video card (forgot model number), amd 3200+, not sure why i listed my pc specs but ehh why not. anyways the title says it all, but to break it down, the problem is when i go to play my music in windows media player 11, it will make this terrible screaching sound (and thats for all music no matter what file extension it is .avi .wmv .mp3 etc.) after the screaching sound the music will sound very low then slowly it will begin to make the volume louder and louder till it gets to the correct volume setting that you set it (on computer or physically on the speaker). i have tried to see if other media players does this such as quicktime and itunes and they work fine, its only when playing in windows media player does it give me that screach sound at the beginning of everyone music/movie then it sounds low after a few minutes it will get loud again and sometimes get low volume then it will increase the volume, whats the matter anyone? could it be related to Divx, which i do have it installed on my machine however i am not sure if it all started when i installed divx, wasnt really paying attention nor was i using windows media player when i installed divx, please help its really annoying and would love to get this fixed.

Thank you

First, try removing Windows Media Player (WMP) 11 in Add/Remove Programs, then reinstall it. Does the problem continue?

If so, try removing DivX. I do not think it is causing the problem, but could not hurt to try. Does it still continue?

I recently got a Zune and for the Zune software to work, WMP needs to work. A few months ago, it stopped playing music altogether. Not one song. It won't even play anything off of a CD, or on the internet. I was probably on the phone with Zune for 7-8 hours for them to tell me they couldn't help me. I was then connected to Microsoft, who told me I could call Acer or pay 60 dollars plus tax to Microsoft for them to help me. I called Acer and they said I would have to pay $60 per 30 mins. I don't have that kind of money right now and i just want my WMP fixed!!
Can someone help me please!!
 

A:Windows Media Player not playing music! please help!

Welcome
Here's an answer that someone found (seems like alot of trouble to me, syncing music to Att phone then back to,,,,)
http://askville.amazon.com/Zune-Win...edia-player/AnswerViewer.do?requestId=5785573

I suggest reinstalling the Media Player. Click Start, type Turn Windows features on and off

Uncheck the player, apply, restart Windows, recheck, apply, restart Windows.

The above may be a quick fix that won't last though?

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)
