how to play AVI file on Real Player/Windows Media Player?

Q: how to play AVI file on Real Player/Windows Media Player?

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 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.)

I'm running Windows XP.

When I'm looking at cd's on Amazon and I try to play a sample of a cd it doesn't work no matter if I choose Media Player or Real Player.
Both tell me they can't play the file.

But they work if I put in a cd in the drive.

Anyone know why they wouldn't play from internet ?

I was trying to play one of my DVDs on my laptop yesterday and I got this pop up that said
"Windows Media has encountered a problem and need to close. We are sorry for the inconveniences"
I was like WTF ?? !! So I tried opening it with Real Player and got the same answer. I removed and re-installed Windows Media player but that didn't help either.

Following is the error signature after the error message:

AppName: realplay.exe AppVer: 6.0.12.1483 ModName: quartz.dll
ModVer: 6.5.2600.2749 Offset: 0003fa8eproblem and we need to close.

The only thing I can think of that may have contributed to this is that couple days ago, I was removing some programs via "Add or Remove programs" to clean up some disk space. I may have deleted some software/programs that have to do with being able to play movies using either Windows or Real player.

I am able to play my MP3s on Real Player and Windows Media so it definitely has to do with DVD part and that's why I'm pretty sure that I deleted something that I shouldn't have that day.

I called Dell and they ran a hardware check on my laptop just so they could say that "there was nothing wrong with your computer - it's your software and we can't help you."

Our music files are in Real Jukebox. How can we put them into Windows Media Player? We tried drop and drag, but this doesn't change the type.
 

A:Real Player Files transferred to Windows Media Player

Depending on the file the might not work
unless you talking about converting them

If you can play them on media player

Highlight the File
hold down the shift key
And Right Click

Now use open with
The goto media player
and check the always use box
If you always want to use it to open

Had a lot of trouble after installing Microsoft's DirectX 7a. Could not use DirectDraw, Direct 3D, or any media players: all would result in a page fault (Kernel32.dll @0137:bff7297c).

After over 30 days of troubleshooting, we isolated the conflict to the Vision 95 which has an option of being or not being installed along with the STB Velocity (Virge VX) 3D drivers.

However, BEWARE OF DIRECTX 7a and especially WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER!~ I shout because ya need to [email protected]

Windows MEdia Player seems to me to be programmed to seek out any and all other media players (ie. Real Player 7), and mess them up big time. I have a 465 Kb .mpg file. It used to play on Real player BEFORE i put Direct X 7a in. Now, it plays 2.4 seconds of the mpg and quits. Also, a .mov, although it plays in entirety, the sound is ABSOLUTELY RAUCIOUS at all volume settings.

INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, both the mpg and mov play REALLY WELL in Windows Media Player.

I did a Add/Remove on Windows Media Player 6.4, and Real Player started having colored lines appearing in the video.

I did a manual uninstall of WMP (delete msdxm.ocx).

No improvement in Real Player.

Deleted Real Player, defrag/scandisk'ed, rebooted, clean install of RP 7, check out the mpg or mov: NO IMPROVEMENT.

Good Morning,

I'm helping a friend set up their new hard drive on the laptop. They want to play music and dvd's so I loaded Real Player and Quick Time. Can't get either to play. What am I missing?

Thank you
 

A:Can't get media to play in Quick Time or Real Player

You need a player that will open the MPEG-2 file type:

GOM

VLC

You can also play commercial movie DVDs with Windows Media Player as long as you download the proper codecs. The K-Lite Codec Pack includes MPEG-2 and many more. However, it's easier and safer to use the above players instead. They will play just about everything.

Hi my name is Mario. I use Windows XP and I have been using WMP 10 for months without any problems. However in the past 2 weeks I can't make any file play. Evertime I try to play a file I get:

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.
(More information shows thats a C00D1199: Cannot play the file)
I have done everthing to correct the problem myself...
WITHIN WMP 10
All the file types to play are checked (asf, wmv, avi, wav, mpeg....etc)
Player Settings
Is set to download codecs automatically (it doesnt download the codecs)
Is set Connect to the Internet (overrides other commands)
INTERNET PROPERTIES
Internet Security Level for this zone is set to medium (default)
I RE-INSTALLED WMP 10
I RE-INSTALLED the video & audio drives.
I even tried to use system restore to a previous month and nothing!!!!
Im going crazy !!!!

I already checked for viruses and for system errors using Norton Antivirus and Norton Disk Doctor

WMP ONLY PLAYS "Windows Media Audio/Video file" type and the rest of the files have been designated as "Movie Clip" type.
Because WMP is not working I can only see videos with InterVideoWinDVD (but I miss WMP)

Ok, so there is this streaming .asx video file, and I want to save it to my harddrive. To download such a file to a hard drive, you need to use third party software like ASF Recorder - I'm sure some of you have heard of this. So I did, and it finished, but the file won't play. Windows Media Player says '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'. Now, what's weird is that when I stream the file from the net, WMP plays it just fine, but when I download it using ASF recorder, WMP won't play it, and in both cases, it's the same basic file that's being played, just one is on a server out there somewhere and one is on my hard drive.

So why won't the one I downloaded with ASF recorder play?

Hi.
I used to play all my mp3 files via Windows Media Player. Those were the good ol' Napster days. Then came Bearshare, for which I downloaded Real Player Basic, and since then it seems, I can't get any audio out of Windows Media Player anymore. It seems to be doing its job and all that happy stuff, you know: opening media libraries, playing mp3 files... only: no audio. Real Player's doing fine, but even my old Napster mp3 files from Napster - heck, even the Bearshare files that work with Real Player! - get zero audio when played in Windows Media. So I figured it's some sort of conflict, you know? That stuff happens. So being the resourceful guy that I am, I tried uninstalling Real Player, (Settings, Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs...) but you know what? It's not working. I get a pop up window ("Are you absolutely SURE you wanna lose all yer Real Player stuff? Yes/No" I do "Yes", I get another pop up job ("Uninstalling Real Player") but that's it. You know the blue horizontal bar you get that informs you of how far into the process you are? It doesn't even show up. At this point, nothing goes further. Ctrl/Alt/Delete tells me "Uninstalling Real Player Not Responding". It does that every time.

You know what, forget WMP and use something else. I recommend you to test ?VLC player?. It can read all video formats and you don?t need to install some codecs. It is for free.

Hi,

When playing any audio file (.wma, .wav, .mp3) I get the message that the file cannot be player : 0xC00D1199: Cannot play the file. Since I can play the file with e.g. MusicMatch, I can confirm there is nothing wrong with it.

Everything used to work fine, until I used a registry cleaner a while ago. Since then MediaPlayer doesn't seem to work anymore. I tried everything I could think of : uninstall/reinstall mediaplayer, regsrvr32 on all DLLs, reinstall the codecs (Fraunhofffer II). I even tried to downgrade to mediaplayer 7, but then windows told me there was no need, since I had all the necessary tools already installed (and I just uninstalled MediaPlayer 9 !).

Does anyone know what is going on and what I can do to solve this ?

Probably some of you will suggest to simply use another audiotool. This is what I am doing right now, but I would like to know what is going on and how I can solve it.

Recently I re-installed XP(probably didn't have to, but that's another story). I finally got my internet connection back and have re-installed my audio files. When I tried to start Musicmatch, I would be prompted that currently there was no music folder. After I "clicked' yes to that, the MM music would come up for a second or 2, as would the MM logo, then everything just quit and nothing. I finally uninstalled MM and re-downloaded it. Now when I try to start it, I get nothing.

I can run my music on Win Media Player, but can't run an entire song without a prompt that Media Player has experienced a problem(of course, when you click that promt, MMP disappears). It also won't play MS format music files.

I also can't get Real One to come up - after about 5 seconds of booting up, I get a prompt that it's encountered an error.

I also can't get Quick Time to come up...I get an "error 2093 message - make sure it's installed in your system."

Again, everything ran fine before reinstalling WXP(from the D drive?). Is there some common driver or something for all these media programs that I might be missing?

Today, I put in a cd and I get no sound from the speakers. Everything in mediaplayer looks like the disc is playing. Likewaise, when I open a wav or mp3 file, i get no audio. I also tried the real ob eplayer, and that had the same issue. I do get audio from speakers when I test a system sound.

I clicked on the audio icon and everything is unchecked.

any ideas?

Hi. I am not able to play any audio or video files in my Windows Media Player or in my Real Player. I may have installed some codecs that may have caused this - but I do not know, as the codecs were installed 2 weeks ago, and I have used these media players since then.

What would you suggest I do?

Thanks for your help.

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.

B)
Why do mpg files play so much better and smoother on RP8 than they do in MMP7? I don't know what it is, but whenever I play a mpg video with MMp7 I get chopy frame rates (normal and full-screen mode)and when play it with RP8 I get smooth playback...
Any thoughts on how to fix or maybe boost perfomance for MMp7?
 

A:Microsoft's Media Player 7 vs Real Player 8

Hi raziel_60

Do you have BlackIce Defender installed, if so, it could be interfering.

Otherwise, take a look at this link for more FAQs on Windows Media Player 7.

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.
