When i try to play a video on gom player it say that i dont have necessary codec to play video


Hi,
You can download/ install Media Player Classic
Download the latest version of Media Player Classic (K-Lite Codec) FOR FREE
It is a small but a very fine Media Player which also installs all the required CODEC and you can play all audio - video files.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Not able to watch DVD's or videos on your PC? No picture only audio?


Reason
If you're having a problem reading DVD's or video files on your PC the this is because you either don't have a media player installed on your system or that you don't have a recent or updated codec pack installed on your PC.

Codec update
Firstly lets get to the Codec pack. A Codec pack is a list of video decoding information that, when added to your systems codec library, reads and converts the code and instructions from the video clip to your video player. To be able to play new videos or DVD's you will need to have the latest Codec update available. You can get the latest codec pack here. All you have to do is click the Download [ K-Lite Codec Pack 6.9.0 Full ]. Once downloaded you will need to install it and you may need to reboot after the setup is complete. VLC Media Player comes with Windows Media Player Classic and a host of audio/video decoders needed to play any video or audio file.

A great Video/Media Player
If you don't have a media/video player installed then you should try this great media application I found on the net. It's called VLC Media Player and it can literally play ANY media file, especially HD videos that Media Player Classic can't handle, and the best thing is that it is totally 100% FREE. It can be found on the VLC website here.

Extra
If you want to customise your VLC media player you can, just head over to the VLC skins department and get the skin pack.

Media players cant play my .avi movies. i copied a .avi movie from my friend's pc using a flash drive and moved it into my personal pc but my media players wont play it. it did not say it was a missing...


I assume you are using the Windows Media Player to play the .avi formats on your OS Windows PC?

If this is the case, you do not have the necessary "codecs" to play the .avi files. Download & install the latest codec package ie K-Lite Mega Codec Pack or K-Lite Codec Pack @ http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_Lite_Mega_Codec_Pack.htm

Hope it helps.

Every time i open the GOM player it would ask for "FIND codec"


GOM Player includes many codecs (XviD, DivX, FLV1, AC3, OGG, MP4, H263) Along with different media format such as AVI, MPG, MPEG and DAT, GOM Player also supports streaming Windows media format (WMV, ASF, ASX).

Possible Reason:

* Ensure that you have downloaded a genuine version and not a broken file, which is likely to miss some codecs, GOM is a FREE media player with popular audio & video codecs built-in. So you won't need to install separate codecs for most videos. For those videos that require a separate codec, GOM Player will find one.

* Without the appropriate codec, you'll be prohibited from playing AV files/the codec for which the file you are playing is missing (playback error), which prompts you to "Find Codec" screen. In the case you need other codecs, the 'Find Codec' popup will assist you in searching for the correct codec to play your file. If you didn't find any: first reason is likely to be the issue.

Fixes:

*Search Result will be shown on a new internet page. Once youve found it, simply download and install to watch the AV files.

I cant play dvd. asking for codec application.


The Video Player you are using doesn't support the video file format you are trying to open. So go online for downloading the corresponding codec from that player itself. You have not specified what type of file you are trying to open...... But still I recommend you to use VideoLan VLC Media Player or Media Player Classic(K-Lite Codec Pack) for smooth performance which playing audios or videos because these players support most of the video and audio file formats. You can download the players from the following links:

  1. VLC Media Player
  2. Media Player Classic Homecinema

Hope this will work the best for you.

Hello Windows media player and movie maker won't recognise the videos taken by my JVC GZMG750, is their anything i can do to fixs this Regards Fiona


Do you mean you cannot play the videos in Windows media Player? If yes then all you need is a Codec pack. You can download the k-lite mega codec pack which includes media player classic that you can use to play the files.

If problem persists then let me know the extension of the video files so that I can suggest an appropriate solution.

My Windows Media Player does not show video, plays only the sound. Despite that the program tells that the codec is obtained. However, it also tells that it cannot open the configuration file.


Some videos have area restrictions. I don't know if this is your case but if you down Windows Medai Player Classic from here for example; from download.cnet.com/Media-Player-Classic/3000-2139_4-10518778.html you'll be much wiser. It plays anything that is in avi format...
