We have a error the error code is 0xcood1199


you've got this error because you are playing file that is not supported to your windows media player. try to play it with other media player just live VLC player, Real Player, or DVD Player or try to convert the file using a conversion program and convert it to wmv or any known media player that windows media player can support.

Your problem is indeed related to a software setting. When your DVD writer software was installed, it automatically sets itself the default program to play certain files(like music or movies, etc) If you want to "choose" a program to be used for your music, you have to right click the file you want to open, and select the option "Open with..." Then just select the application you want to use. If you want to make it your default application from now on, simply check the box at the bottom that says "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" Problem solved..!

Cant download videos


Even though the file may be linked to your movie player, when the movie player is trying to access the video, its simply not finding it where it is suppose to be.

I'm not sure how your downloading convention is, but how I do things is when I get an attachement, picture, or video... I usually almost always Right-click on it once and do a Save As... Then I'll specify a folder to save it into (usually easiest saving it to the Desktop and create a folder there, example: Movies) and hit Ok.

I'm not sure if you're opening these movies directly from your source and its streaming and not downloaded OR if you did download them, it is not finding the files in the designated space that Windows Media Player is trying to find it in. Like when you may put a screwdriver on the shelf versus the drawer... when you go back to find the screwdriver and look in the drawer (where you've always put it) its not there.

As far as opening files, it may be that you need a certain codec to open up that particular file. I find that most videos accessed online need the DivX codec that you can download for free from the divx website. Remember to look for the codec itself and not the player. Be sure to read all the install screens and only select the things you need instead of hitting OK on all the screens.

If you don't remember where you put those downloaded movies, I would do a search of the files and folers on the hard drive. Especially if you remember what the file name was called, that'll help immensely. Simply press on the Start > Search, and then put in the file name.

Computer video problem


Hi there

This is something you can try.

Go into My Computer.

Right click one of the video clips.

Select "Open With", then "choose program".

Now you should get a list of programs you can play the file with, the best ones are at the top.

Select Windows Media Player or Real Player.

Click OK.

Now if the video clip works OK....

Repeat the procedure, but this time check the box below that says "always open this type of files with the selected program".

I cant watch videos on my computer no more why?


do you have video software installed ? Real Player, Jet Audio, Windows Media Player .......etc

make sure you have them and if you're trying to play a move, look at the extension ( Name.WMV) .WMV is for windows media video, which works on windows media player. you have to have the right program to play the video you want depending on the extension.

I have Jet Audio, its a very good program that can play many types of movies. you just go to preferences ---> file type associations ---> then check all and it will play almost any video or audio file you have. without needing to download all other software. One For All

Have video but no audio when playing dvd movies in wmp 11


Solution:
Well i could recommend another free video player instead of Windows Media Player 11. In this case, try installing Real Alternative, VLC, GoomPlayer all lf them support DVDs format.

I recommend Real Alternative over all 3 of them, to get it go here:
1) http://www.videohelp.com/tools/real_alternative and click on the "Download (mirror)".
2) after download is complete start the installation make sure to UNCHECK the following checkmarks during installation: Active X, and pluggin for firefox/opera/chrome/etc. you can leave the rest of the installation as default and click next all the time.
3) whenever you want to play a DVD close WMP 11 start Media Player Classic (installed during the real alternative installation, there should be a shourcut icon on your desktop for Real Player Classic now) on Media Player Classic go to File>Open DVD and you should have picture and sound.

Another extra side note of Real Alternative is that you can also play real media files (.rm, .rmvb) without having to install the nasty Real Media Player application

Hope this helps.

Windows Movie maker problem


When you publish it, do it to dvd quality. This should create a windows movie file which is the simplist form for windows media player to read. If that does not work contact me and we will go through step by step.
