Sounds like you're lacking an audio codec, likely AC3 Try installing this one - http://www.free-codecs.com/download/AC3_Filter.htm

If not, you may want to try some other codecs or just use realplayer or vlc media player

Hello sir, when i play audio mo3 songs in media player this erer comes where can i solve this problem thanks microsoft mpeg-1 50 codec download Many thanks Shak


This is a Codec problem.

If you have a song which has an .mp3 extension. Changed it to .mp2 and it will now play fine without searching for a Microsoft MPEG-1 (50) Codec.

Open the folder with the MP3 file in it that you want Windows Media Player to play.

Click on "Organize" then "Folder and Search Options". Choose the view tag.

Untick "Hide extensions for known file types". Click "OK".

Right click in blank area of the folder. Choose "Properties" then the "Customize" tab. Select "Documents" from the drop down menu. Click "OK".

You will now see files in the folder with their extensions. Change the extension of the file you want WMP to play from ".mp3" to ".mp2".

Double click the file. It will play in WMP.

Windows media player won't play cd


go into the settings by rt clicking on media player, and go to tools, options and enable the media player to be the default player for file types, you may want to select "all" that way wmp will be your default player for every audio and video application, if you only want DVD or several of the file types, you can pick out which ones from that same menu, good luck,Gym
