I cannot play mp4 files on my laptop

What is the best player that i CAN download for free to work with these files? Windows Media 11 did not work...

Posted by on

  • notherperson Dec 29, 2008

    Been watching mp4s for a while now, and since the start, only one laptop in my home can play them smoothly. It's an old Compaq laptop.

    I have another desktop computer and another laptop whose drivers are fully updated, and I've downloaded quite a few codecs in my attempt to make my MP4 playback less 'choppy'. The laptop and desktop are really fast computers with dual processors. They play everything except MP4 files.

    I am hating MP4 format.

    So here's what I did:

    - Downloaded a bunch of media players, like BS, VLC, ITunes, etc. Still Choppy
    - Downloaded a bunch of codecs. Still choppy
    - Updated all video drivers. Still choppy.

    I'm now ready to give up on this MP4 thing with my high-powered laptop and desktop. When my old and beat up Compaq laptop stops working, I'll have no mp4 player.

    Really irritating.

    And any help is greatly appreciated.

    PS: It is **NOT** a hardware issue.

I download mp4 files to my GoGear but it says "does not support the file format". How to fix the problem?


Your device can play video file if its format is suitable. If you install the Philips songbird software you can convert your files with it and the player will play them after files transferred.

The software is download-able from here:

http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?tmplt=ePlatform%20-%20Philips&scy=US&slg=AEN&sct=FLASH_AUDIO_PLAYER_SU&cat=MP3_MEDIA_PLAYERS_CA&session=20110221100645_93.189.114.198&grp=SOUND_AND_VISION_GR&ctn=SA2VBE04K/17&mid=Link_Software&hlt=Link_Software

This solution can be usable if your player's type is SA2VBE.... If you have SA1... type you should use Philips Device Manager you can download too from this website.
Windows Media Player 11 and Quick Time software should be installed on your PC.
Good luck!
Thanks.

I am trying to download music I purchased on itunes to my mp3 player. It shows it on the list when I have it on the computer, but does not show or play on the actual mp3 player. What do I do>


Hi dasdis07...

You did not say what manufacture your MP3 player is so it is hard to tell you what to do.
I will assume you have a normal MP3 player...not an Ipod.
Check to see what format your MP3 player will play...because the I-tunes songs are in ACC.
Normal everyday players play MP3,WMA,ect...but will not play ACC that plays on ipods.
You will also need to download (FREE) and run a media converter so that you can convert your ACC music files to MP3,WMA,etc files that will play on your MP3 player.
Once you have your music converter and on Windows Media Player, then you can transfer them to your MP3 player
What your going to have to do is follow these instructions below:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Music to MP3 Player

1...You must download and install Windows Media Player 11 on your computer.
NOTE...Some older MP3 players will not work with Windows Media Player 11 or Windows 7 with Windows Media Player 11.
If this happens to you, then you will have to uninstall Windows Media Player 11 and install Windows Media Player 10.
2...After you have downloaded and installed Media Player on your computer.
3...Open Media Player on your computer.
4...Install all your music into Media Player that you want to install on your MP3 player.
5...Plug in your MP3 player to the computer using your Data/Sync cord, be sure that Windows Media Player is on.
6...Media player should recognize the MP3 player and sync with it.
7...After it is sync'ed with the computer,you can add the music you have installed into Windows Media Player to your MP3 Player.
