Windows Media Player giving me memory problems

Q: Windows Media Player giving me memory problems

Hi! Everytime I try to play a sound in Win Media Player 10, I get a message that my memory is low....this happens when I am online so I sign off and it still continues. I installed Version 11 when I got that message, so I reverted back to V. 10, but it's still the same thing.

I am running XP Pro, with 1 gig of memory. I would think that memory is sufficent, wouldn't you? I have never gotten memory low messages before, this just started a few days ago. I can see having a problem when online but not offline. Would appreciate any help. TIA

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.

I want to stream music from my PC to my xbox 360 so I did what my xbox 360 told me to and went to http://www.xbox.com/en-US/pcsetup and followed the directions downloading zune. After I downloaded it the Zune media player acts like my computer has no connection with the classic "page cannot be displayed" and "your computer is not connected" messages. I've made sure that it was on windows firewall's exception list and it was. Also I added several other zune applications to the exception list. I'm positive I have a connection as I can use internet explorer. How might I fix this and what may be the problem?
 

A:Zune media player giving me trouble

Ok, problem fixed, I had to uninstall zune and all media player related things in add-remove program. I also uninstalled windows media connect. I then installed Windows Media Player 11 which comes with a built in windows media connect.Then I had to download and install a driver for my multimedia audio controller to get the sound working again (possibly because I uninstalled a codec pack). I went to library (in Windows Media Player 11) and clicked media sharing and didn't see my Xbox 360 so I when to advanced settings and checked automaticaly allow new devices (or something similar) and went to my Xbox 360 and attempted to connect. I was so happy when It found my computer. I went back to my computer and my xbox 360 was on the list and allowed.
Also I followed these steps but I don't know if it is what made it work or not:
1. At a command prompt, run: "regsvr32 %windir%system32rsaenh.dll"
2. Reboot
3. Attempt to connect to Xbox 360

Hi nocturna99

Try Process Explorer to double-check your background processes http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilitie...sExplorer.html
And AutoRuns to double-check your Startup processes
http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/Autoruns.html
And Rootkit Revealer to try & detect if a rootkit is involved
http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilitie...tRevealer.html

If the change is recent enough, you can always try a System Restore, to a restore point from before the trouble started.

If you haven't visited Windows Update recently, make sure to try that, too - as there might be a recent patch that helps your situation.

Best of luck

[P.S... . let us know if you find a rootkit present - and would like strategies for recovery]

Well, I'm not sure what to do here. Up until a few days ago I was sharing my media with all computers on my network on my wireless router.

Now when I log into windows and open WMP 11 it says that I am no longer sharing media, would you like to turn on sharing? So I say yes and confirm to share my media to all devices on my network, mainly my PS3.

I uninstalled it and reinstalled it (well it actually just reverted back). I also checked to make sure that Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service is set to automatic in Admin tools. And also checked windows firewall that it allows the service.

So I am at a loss here, I don't know how to get my media sharing capabilites back. I know its not my PS3, as I am sharing media from my laptop right now. Any suggestions?

Thanks High

Funny thing is IPSEC Services do not have to be disabled in XP.

Hope this helps someone.

I have Windows 7 64 bit here.
Windows Media Player has been behaving very badly and I'm desperate for help.
I want to uninstall the damn appliation but cant' even see a way to do so in
Uninstall programs.

Here is what it is doing now. right now in taskmanger wmplayer32 is eating up nearly
2 gigabytes of RAM. My system has 4 installed. 78 percent of my total RAM is consumed by Win 7 due to media center.
CPU usage goes totally ape and swaps to 100 percent on one core and 50 percent
and higher overall with both cores.

I can get control of my pc which as you can imagine slows to a crawl, by opening
task manager and attempting to kill the damn windows media center and player process's.

THis usually terminates the problem and I get the RAM back and CPU averages the normal few percent.
However if I open media center again to say watch TV it goes ape**** again.

I've never been a fan of MS Media center and of course always used VLC and the ilk to watch vids. However when I migrated to Windows 7 the media center crap was more or less forced on me.

If I can find a fix I'll keep it but if not I'm far more inclined to totally remove
all of MS MEdia center from Win 7 if at all possilbe. IT is a nightmare sytem hog and
a poorly behaved app.
Course that comes back to my first statement I CAN"T FIND A WAY TO REMOVE THE GD MEDIA CENTER.

HELP.

I've been having this issue for quite awhile now. The issue i'm having is when trying to watch embedded video in either Firefox, or Internet explorer. About 50% of the time I attempt to watch a video, both Firefox, and Internet Explorer will crash. This isn't the only problem I have with it. Not only will the browser crash, but when I try to CTRL+ALT+DEL to shut the process down it will not let me. The system CPU usage for both programs skyrockets to 50 of the 100%. The other 50 is being used by the System Idle Process. Normal windows usage for me is 98-99% System Idle Process. When the browser crashes and I attempt to close it, I am unable to, Windows task manager will not close both Firefox and Internet Explorer. On top of this, I am not able to even restart my computer through the start menu, I am forced to use the power button on the front of my machine, which I hate doing. If anyone has any comments/suggesstions I would really appreciate it.

I'm a newcomer to these forums, and I saw similar problems were getting help, so I thought I'd try this out for myself. I wasn't sure where exactly to post this; it primarily deals with audio and gaming performance problems, but I feel it is directly related to the general Operating System, so I decided to post here.

I've been having this weird glitch for a while, probably started sometime last year, I don't remember when, but I do remember that I couldn't really figure out what to do about it. Whenever there is audio, its a bit glitchy whenever something else goes on. For example, if I run iTunes and click play on a song, it sounds for the most part perfect and fine. Then, if I scroll down in my browser, it makes a short, slight static-y noise that screws with the playback for every time I press the down arrow-key or notch the scroll-wheel. If an animated AD pops up, everytime it does something it makes a super short static-y noise and screws with the playback of the song. This for some reason occurs in Youtube videos when played fullscreen too. Frankly, this sucks arse.

What's worse is it totally affects the performance of my games. I'm on an oc'd core duo, with 2gigs of ram, and a Geforce 8800GTS. When I try to run, say, the 2004 game Rome: Total War on high(which should have NO problems) the frame-rate is about 4 or 6 frames a second on the campaign map, and when I click a unit the speech is a bit garbled due to a ton of stat...

I have a Compaq Presario V3000 laptop running Windows Vista Home Basic.

Sometimes, when I play certain songs on Windows Media Player, the sound suddenly fizzles out near the beginning of the song and comes back near the end of the song. Now, I am certain that there's nothing wrong with the music files themselves, because they play without any problems on VLC Media Player.

Has anyone had similar problems? If so, have you been able to fix it?

Recently I have been having problems with Windows Media Player within my web brower. When I use WMP to play a video from my hard disk I have no problems, yet if I try and view a video embedded in a web page it will not play.

When using IE the video simply does not play.

I am running Win98SE with windows media player 9. I have Mozilla 1.7 and IE 6.

Hello everyone,

Recently, my computer was in standby and when it came back on, my wireless wasn't working. I figured it wasn't a big deal so I restarted my computer, but it never turned on...it went in a loop from the booting to a flash of the blue error screen after the windows xp logo had stayed on for awhile. After the blue screen, it went back to the boot menu, giving me options now of starting with last known good config, safe mode, etc. However, none of those modes worked, and I ended up doing a system restore. Once I got it up and running I did a chkdsk and it found bad sectors. For the chkdsk, I had the boxes checked to automatically fix file system errors and scan for and attempt for recovery of bad sectors.
It's running and I thought everything was fine. Now, my AOL instant messenger will not load, nor will my windows media player. I have uninstalled and reinstalled both programs, but neither are working still. I just had my computer fixed one month ago and it has been running great, up until this happened. I'm confused as to why it even happened and would just like to have a working computer! If anyone could help me, it would be greatly appreciated!! I am contacting the man who fixed my computer, but he is back at home, and I'm away at school. So, if I am at all able to fix it with your help, I would appreciate it.

Thanks for your help in advance!

Ok, so here is the deal. I have a few .avi movie files on my computer. I was using Nero to try and burn them to CD but nero kept crashing, no errors or anything just closing down. So i decided to DL and try a few other programs. I tried DVD Santa, WinAVI, and another one. None of these worked either so I deleted them off my PC. Now for some reason I can not play the .avi movie files in Windows Media Player anymore. I downloaded DivX player to make sure the files would still play somewhere and they do play in there. I went to add/remove programs - add/remove windows components - and removed windows media player and then redownloaded and installed it, and the files still wont play. Also, if i have the folder that these files are located in with the web view i get an error from explorer.exe and it closes the folder. When i disable the web view it doesnt do that, but i can only play the videos in my other player. When i try to open them in windows media player it says "Microsoft Windows Media Player has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." I also have .avi movie files in a different folder, with web view enabled, and i dont get the explorer.exe error, but i also cant play those either.

I am running windows 7 and I use the windows media player. Just recently, after a restore, I can convert files to mp3 and save them in media player and they play back fine. When I try to burn them, all of the files give an error saying that media player doesn't know what size the files are. I went into control panel and then troubleshooting and it said my media player was corrupt. I deleted every file in my media player and did the media player restore, and it stills says it is corrupt. How do I completely uninstall windows media player and then re-install it. Windows media player is not showing up on the list of programs to uninstall on windows uninstall list, ccleaner uninstall list, or revo uninstaller list. Or is there another solution without using a different player.
 

A:Windows 7 Media Player problems

Windows Media Player is part of the OS = Operating System, therefore you cannot uninstall it.
I think you need to roll it back to WMP 11 & go from there. Hopefully somebody else in here can help. Good luck.

Good morning everybody,

I am having problems with my Vista @ work.

Windows media player opens itself and pops up constantly putting itself in front of all programs running.

If i minimize WMP then it pops up again.

At first I though maybe something was jammed on my keyboard or my macros set to my mouse but its neither.

It's also wierd because i cannot find it in my uninstall list.

This problem is beggining to be a headache, and I called our tech guy to come fix the problem but he is clueless on this problem.

Any help that anybody could give me would be greatly appreciated !!!

Thanks,
Jake

When I play video files in WMP such as game and film trailers, they look fine when there in 50-100% size but when in 200% or full-screen mode they look crappy and blurred. Does anyone know how to make the videos look good when in 200% or full-screen mode please?

I am browsing thru a site called Allmusic.com which allows you to listen to samples of songs. When I click on the music sample icon, Media player automatically opens. A couple of times it actually worked where the music sample downloaded and played successfully, but most of the time, an error window pops up "Media Player cannot find the specified file." I've tried correcting the problem thru Allmusic's troubleshooting guide but was unsuccessful...any suggestions?

I have many problems with this piece of software.

First of all, it does not load my library. I have vista so when i put music into my "my music" folder, i would have thought it would load this music automatically, and when i try to do it manually it does not add the music to the library.

Second, it does not let me use the setup file in the program folders because i have a "newer version" and so on.

Third, i cannot uninstall and reinstall because it does not appear on any the lists of my installed programs.

Anyone have a solution?

We had a problem with our cd driver we have that back up but it will not run properly. Here are some things it is doing:

it will tell us to insert a blank cd - even after we do that already

also, when we insert a cd-rw (with music already on it) it will only play the cd, not giving us the option to erase the disc and record something else - this was not a problem before

What can we do to straighten the music up?
 

A:Windows Media Player Problems

Your post doesn't really make much sense because you have WMP as the title but you are talking about backing up?

Also if you have 2 CD-RW drives, you will need to make sure that the CD is going into the drive that is designated as the CD burner.

I dont know if this is the right forum to ask this. But I had a great playlist in an old laptop in the Windows Media Player. But my new MP3 player isn't compatible with the older version of the Windows Media Player, I don't think, as it doesn't recognize it. So I wanted to transfer the playlist to a newer computer that does recognize my new MP3 player. But when I do that the new Windows Media Player doesn't "see" the new playlist I just transferred over. arggggggggg. Is there any way I can get my old playlist on my new MP3? Thanx Guys
