Windows Media Player cannot play several files in the playlist. This might be caused by one or more problems.
To find information about the specific problems, click the Now Playing tab, and then click the blue or red icon next to each file in the List pane.
In some cases, you might encounter this error message if there is a problem with your sound device, such as a sound card or sound controller. For example:

  • Your sound device requires an updated driver. To determine if an updated driver is available, see Windows Update or see the sound device manufacturer's Web site.
  • Your sound device is not functioning properly. To troubleshoot the problem, see Windows Help and Support or refer to your sound device's documentation.
  • You do not have a sound device installed on your computer. Install a sound device, and then try to play the file again

SOURCE: Media test faiture, check cable error message ,

The error is related to your network interface card. In a lot of laptops this is integrated to the motherboard and can't be switched out at home. You will need to take the laptop in for service to have the card replaced.

SOURCE: I am having trouble accessing videos/pics. on my laptop

Since your question is not so clear, I have to assume myself that pictures and videos saved on your phone can't play on your computer after they are transferred to your computer. The message simply means that the codec installed on your system does not support the media type that you are playing. If you don't have any other player installed on your system you have to try with this one Vlc media Player (click here to download). Download it, and install, now open the downloaded files (video or pic or audio) using this player. Hopefully that should work. Alternatively you can use this player instead of Windows Media Player, but on the other hand, you can still play those files using Windows Media Player. The only thing you need is to install a codec, like Klite megacodec packs, Acemega codec packs, etc.. Click here to download Klite mega codec packs Download, Install and restart your computer, now you'll be able to play any type of media file using your windows media player and other players.

If you have problem, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file.


Try using a different player with built-in codecs. Windows Media Player doesn't support a lot of files. I suggest using VLC Player. It's free and plays all files!

Are you using Windows Media Player? If you are, there are some file types that Windows Media Player doesn't support. I would suggest trying VLC Media Player. It's an open-source, free program. I've never encountered a media file it couldn't handle. Here's the link: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
I hope this helps!

Can't see video music. says windows media player not supported. need to update codec. what is it?


Hey!

Windows Media Player can play limited types of file formats. If you get that message, it means that the file may work but you might encounter some problems like there's sound but no video or no sound but has video. You can download codecs upgrades but it will download only specific ones.

You can download VLC media player. It's a very nice piece of freeware that allows you to play almost all types of file formats. And in case the file that you have is damaged, it will attempt to repair to so that you can play it.

Click here to get to the download link.

Hope this helps! :D

Microsoft Windows Media Player is a free media player software that comes with the personal computer version of Windows operating systems. The software supports basic file formats such as WMV, WMA, AVI, MP3, and ASF. The player included in Windows XP gives you the power to create your own CDs, search and organize digital media on your PC, and copy files to portable devices such as CDs and pen drives.
Fix Windows Media Player Problems
Corrupted and missing DLLs files, incorrect registry entries, and outdated files are some of the causes of Windows Media Player errors. Covered here are a few steps that you can take to fix common problems.
C00D11CD: Unknown Error
C00D11CD errors occur when an operating system component or some other program encounters an error and does not communicate it to Windows Media Player. Due to its generic nature and multiple reasons for occurrence, there is no specific solution to this problem.
If you encounter the error when trying to play an AVI or MPEG 2 file, then most likely, you do not have the correct codec version installed on your system. To fix a Windows Media Player problem related to codec, search for the required codec on the Internet, download it, and update it on your system to play the required file.
Windows Media Player uses Digital Rights Management (DRM) to authorize copying files to a CD or to download them from an online music store. If you do not have DRM authority to copy a particular song, you will not be able to play it and the error will pop up.
Windows Media Player uses the wmadmoe.dll file to encode files. If something goes wrong with this file, you may get the c00d11cd error when you try to copy songs from a CD to your hard disk. To fix a Windows Media Player problem in this situation, you must register the DLL file by running the command ‘regsvr32 wmadmoe.dll’.
80040155: Interface Not Registered
If this error occurs when you try to burn songs into a CD, then the most probable cause is that the required player files are no longer registered on your system. To fix this error, try to reinstall your Windows Media Player or download and install a newer version of the player, if available on the internet.
800C2EE2: Action timed out
This error occurs when your Windows Media Player is unable to connect to a server due to problem in the network, and therefore cannot play protected audio/video files that you download from an online music store. Incorrect Internet Explorer security settings might be the cause of this problem. To fix this, open Internet Explorer and select Tools-Internet Options-LAN Settings. Next, clear the Automatically detect settings check box.
C00D0FAA: Cannot rip the files
The error usually occurs when you try to rip CDs to MP3 format. Existence of entries from an earlier player version in the registry might be the reason behind this problem. One way to fix this problem is by adjusting the audio quality. However, if you want to maintain the audio quality, then to fix this Windows Media Player problem, open the Registry Editor by running the Regedit command and navigate to the subkey given below.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Sett ings\MP3Encoding
Here, open ‘LowrateSample’ and delete the value displayed in the Value Data box. Select OK and exit Registry Editor.
Many times errors also occur when there are corrupt files on the system or there are invalid DLL entries and other related incorrect entries in the system registry. For this, you must try to download reliable registry cleaner software from the Internet and scan your registry for invalid entries. Using registry cleaner software, you can easily and efficiently fix Windows registry problems, and make your PC free from irritating errors.
Errors can occur in Windows Media Player due to outdated files, missing or corrupt DLL files and incorrect registry entries. Most of the time, you can fix Windows Media Player problems by updating missing files or by upgrading the player to a later version. Additionally, to prevent registry-related problems, you can use a registry cleaner software to regularly scan the registry and eliminate invalid DLL entries and corrupt values from it.

Hi simontwaley,

Try to download VLC Player. It might resolve the issue. You can download it from www.videolan.org.

The issue that your encountering is because your media player lacks those codecs that needs to be installed for you to be able to view those files. It is a common issue for almost all windows OS that doesnt have those codecs.

VLC Player can play almost all of the types of video files. Without installing those codecs.
