Preferred Solution: CODECS Both for Audio and Video in Window Media Player for Operating System Window 7

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 NEED DVD CODECS FOR WINDOW MEDAI PLAYER 10 , CAN SOMEONE GIVE IT TO ME PLEASE.
 

A:DVD codecs FOR WINDOW MEDIA PLAYER 10 NEEDED.

Install some other DVD player application and WMP should use the codec installed with it or you can purchase the codec online. Doubtful that you'll find it for free but chances are if you purchased your computer it came with some sort of DVD software. For instance, if you install WinDVD then your WMP10 SHOULD then be able to play DVDs also.

I have a buddy who borrowed a BUNCH of music cds and he put them on his hard drive using windows media player. He now wants to make cds to play in his vehicle. Since I have very little knowledge about this, I told him I knew where to get the answer. If his computer crashed, I could help him. But not with this subject. I must be honest, I am also interested in making some cds off of his files. Any help would be appreciated.

i was thinking of buying an aiptek mini camcorder (just a cheap one) and i noticed that one of their newer models actually records in MPEG4 format.

can my windows media player play that format? or do i need to get something else? would i have to "convert" it to another type of format to save it on my computer and view it later, which now would entail buying another peice of software...(or are there any free converters out there) if i even have to convert it?

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?

Thanks

Now it may well have been something I've done when doing a tidy up But :-
My windows Media Player once played dvd's although that's along time ago.
Now when I put a film in I simply get a message
"Windows Media Player cannot play the DVD because a compatible DVD decoder is not installed in your computer"
 
Trouble is it should have them because they are part of the basic XP set up.
I can't remember what version I was using originally, but took a Microsoft update to version 11
hoping that would overwrite my non working version, but no change in the error message.
 
I can play video from my small camera running .MVI
I don't like the idea of trying to upload codecs from some other source and obviously don't want to reinstall my XP home
with the probable loss of years of information within this small box of tricks !!
 
I have managed a couple of years without it working, but want to solve the problem & not go out into a cold garage to put DVDs into an old windows 98SE system any more.

All of a sudden media player stops displaying video, I get audio and I know that this is usually a codec related problem so I reinstalled both media player (ver. 11) and my codex pack (divx, ver. 6 I think). This resolved the problem temporarily but wouldn't you know it... bam, couple days later and no video again.

Hello all,

I just installed the Shark007 Codecs and reboot the PC. Because, I need to play.MKV video files. I didn't change that plugin settings. Now when I play the AVI video files which has dual audio (two languages), now Windows Media player automatically playing both audio sounds.

When I search on the internet, I found that setting Haali as the AVI splitter in the AVI tab will fix it. Unfortunately, in my situation, it didn't work. After I choose Haali splitter, it shows "Windows media player encountered a problem while playing the file" error.
So how do I disable 2nd audio auto playback?

Thanks!

Hi, TSG has a policy of not allowing us to help users posting questions regarding usage of filesharing or P2P programs...and since your question does pertain partly to Limewire, we cannot help you.

Depending on your location, filesharing for you might be illegal, or legal, it is in some countries, but is not supported here at the TSG forums, sorry!

Our only advice would be to uninstall all P2P programs, run scans for adware/spyware and trojans, and also, uninstall and reinstall your Windows Media Player.

http://forums.techguy.org/faq.php?faq=vb_read_and_post#faq_faq_p2p

Why can't I post questions about P2P (Kazaa, etc)?

Hello ShadowGal89,

I'm not seeing anything in this log. Can you tell us exactly what the pop up says?

Let's use a program to scan for any trojans that may exist. Download TDS-3 http://tds.diamondcs.com.au/index.php?page=download. Learn how to use it at http://tds.diamondcs.com.au/index.php?page=easytouse. Make sure to update it after you installed it. You can get the manual updates at http://tds.diamondcs.com.au/index.php?page=update.

When you launch the program, it will scan your memory for running processes. This will take less than 30 seconds. Next go to 'System Testing' on the menu and choose 'Full System Scan'. After that's finished, post the log file by selecting everything on the top pane (select from bottom to top).

If any alarms are found, it will be listed in the bottom window. Please copy and paste that here also if it applies. If you have problems copying the text, look (or search) for a file named scandump.txt and see if that has the alarms - post that here.

why can't you buy a Genuine Copy of Windows? All you need is a valid serial/product key and you can change the key in your system. Why can't you take it back to where you bought it and demand a Genuine Copy of Windows? Once you have a valid key, you can call Microsoft to help you change the key.

Hay Folks, trust you all had a great Christmas.

I have a problem, I need to rip a DVD of family past history, but All I see is Rip Cd. Now I know it can do it but I do not know how to configure Windows Media Player to do it. I look in Help support but it ant tell me nothing.

Can you guys give me some simple step by step ideas how to do it. I need to rip it then burn a copy of it for another family member.

I sure would appreciate it/ DC and God Bless. .

A:window media player/how to rip DVD

What file format is the DVD in? Go to My Computer,Put the disc and and browse the disc. If it is a DVD file format, there will be 2 folders in the root of the disc. VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS the audio file should be empty (don't ask why). In the VIDEO_TS folder there should be VOB files. If there are any other kinds of files besides those mentioned, it is not a DVD movie disc.
Commercial DVD movies discs have the above mentioned file structure and have Macrovision copywrite protection on them and cannot be legally copied. If this is a home made DVD, that's to say is not a store bought commercial DVD, then you can choose to COPY DVD in any CD burning program to make a DVD copy of the disc. Like Nero, Roxio, or any software that came with your burner. You can Try the free C D Burner XP
If the disc is not a DVD movie file format (as mentioned above) you can copy the files to your HDD and burn them to another disc. No software required to copy.

Hello,

I have two questions:

The first: I have created a web page that uses the Windows Media Player object (classID ends with AA6) to play a video. The video plays for users when they go the page sometimes but not everytime. The same user can come back to the page the next day and it doesn't play and then does again the next day. What are the possible causes?

The second: I have created another web page with the WMP object that also uses an .asx file so it can link closed captions on an .smi file. The video plays with captions on my test server but won't play at all on my production server. The paths to the files look accurate. What are the possible causes?

is there anyway to manually put in the info so the album pic shows while the song plays?

Check the "Tag Info" for each file - it needs to contain the album name, or WMP won't know what album that track is from.

I currently have Windows Media Player 10.

The only write drive I have is a 7 year old Mitsumi which it seems will only write using Roxio mad: ) which I find to be the most frustrating program I have ever worked with.
And I don't ever want to have to work with it again. It tells me to use "Sound Editor" to change the format, but does not tell me where this mysterious editor is located.

I have been thinking of buying an external drive that will read, and write CDR, CDRW and DVD.
And I want them to be able to play on my other players that say they will play these computer creations. (none of which will play Roxio's)

I need to know if they will work with WMP 10.
Will they be able to record the WMP visuals - I like those swirling colors.
Will the DVD recordings be able to play on the audio part on the Audio only players?

Can someone tell me in layman's language what I should look for and what questions to ask when purchacing this unit?
