Re: media player help

Do you have to use Windows Media Player? If you want less hassle, then get VLC Player, which I'll even provide the link for you: Plays all video that I know of, and it's free!!! :D

I would like to watch any downloaded movie and any video codec on my cleartunes TV without any external device, except a USB flash drive cause my media player needs an upgrade to be able to do this?

This is a software redundancy issue, system files need to be updated along with the compatible player that you want to use for the video. you can try to update it from their official site and see if it works. also, download another video and see if that works .. or try this video on another computer..

Is it a commercially sold DVD or one someone burned? If it is one that someone burned then you may need to find the right codecs for the file type used for the video. You could always download VLC media player which works with many different media file types.

And, I actually JUST noticed you said watching a "movie" and not specifically a DVD. However, all of the above could still help.

No sound while watching movie

Most likely you are missing what is called an audio codec, it is a way for the player you're using to interpret the sound signal from the video.
Downloading a full audio/video codec pack will solve almost all problems. Go to and search for codec pack, from the list select windows essential media codec pack , download and install. If this does not work for you the next best option is to download a new video player, the best one out there is free and is called VLC media player and can also be found on . These 2 options solve 99% of problems with video/sound issues, be sure to try rebooting the computer if they do not seem to have worked and try playing the video again.
hope this was helpful.

I have compaq presario v2000 imtrying to watch amovie with the windows media player,i only get sound and no picture


OK, this problem can occur due to a codex. I would suggest that you try downloading Media player classic, i use it, and it plays pretty much all the video and audio formats.

Click HERE to navigate to the download page.

After the download is complete, install the software, then, open the movie with the software you installed.

Let em know if it works.

Kind regards

I just bought a new laptop and want to watch a movie and it tells me to download adobe reader and i did but didn't solve the problem,I don't know what to do next. Can someone help.pls

I dont know why watching a movie needs adobe reader..!! Download VLC media player, or GOM player and try to open the file with these players. It should recognize the movie format and will work.

Make sure the movie file you want to view belongs to a video file format.

I can't watch movies in my laptop, even the downloaded movies i can't watch it. where can i watch?

you need to find an approprieate programme that will be able to play movies of any format.

go to and download VLC or Videolan and a Gomplayer or Divx. I am sure that these would be able to play you your movies.

have fun

Playing movies on laptop

Download latest Windows Media Player

Try also one of the players in the following website, in case your system is malfunctioning with Media Player:The Alternative | Replacements for Windows Media Player

If that does not fix the problem, then you may need to add more RAM memory to your system.
