Media player doesn't support all audio and video file format. I would suggest better to shift to vlc player which is available freely and its very simple to use.

Media player classic on my laptop cannot function at all, please, help me solve problem.


You can update 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 Palyer which also installs all the required CODEC and you can play all audio - video files.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I cant play my music from my windows media player,, An audio codec is needed to play this file. To determine if this codec is available to download from the Web, click Web Help. how can i solve it.


Windows Media Player although is nice graphically it is resource draining for your computer. You can purchase the codecs from them which rather shocked me that Microsoft would even charge for the codecs for people to use their beloved software that comes with their Windows purchase which in my opinion is rather expensive to begin with. So what most of us do these days is get the free codec files which play movies and other files that Media player will not allow you to do. You can obtain them here for no cost whatsoever. Click Me
Now I usually get the mega packs this covers all of them really I also suggest using the VLC player as an alternative to Windows Media Player it is not as pretty but who cares it plays those hard to play files that are not allowed even when had from a torrent or other methods of retrieval even if the files are protected you can still play them using VLC media player. Now do not start downloading a ton of media players that offer the same stuff you will run into problems with players if you have several of them loaded. Dump the ones except Microsoft Windows Media Player it is a part of Windows software. Just go in and pick this as your default player. I hope this assisted you. John

I have a Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook running WindowsXP with a DVD-RW/CD-RW drive. When I insert a DVD to play or to copy it won't work, it tells me I need a DVD decoder. How can I get one to solve this...


Hi,
Just download FFDShow and VLC MEDIA PLAYER.
Its extremely rare with this combination, to find a movie that wouldn't play,

get FFDShow here http://www.free-codecs.com/download_soft.php?d=5550&s=50
with ffdshow all you need to do is to run the setup file and click next repeatedly untill the setup is complete, and then just finish it, close it and its done, works on the background when movies are played.

vlc media player - http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

After you got these two installed, you should be able to play most if not all of the movies out there.


open vlc media player and then click File, dvd movie.

Is windows media player able to play dvds? how daes it work? my laptop media can not play dvds.. i m feeling tired of it..


You may need codecs in order to play most DVD videos and other formats like DivX. Use this codec pack here. Select the Media Player Classic as the application while you were asked to provide it. K-Lite After that both of your players are ready to play DVDs (its better to have Media Player 11 in your system for a better experience) Enjoy your movie!

Problem opening videos


Hi

Windows Media Player can't deal with some "compressed" video formats without special "codecs". A codec is a piece of software that allows a computer to encode/decode various video formats.

Please go here and download and install the free codec pack for Vista. That should sove your problems. :-)

Media player comes back with COOD10D1 error, have sound no picture on DVD


This is a codec error. I can send you a link to a full codec package to download and install.

Click on this link, select a download site and when its done, click run form the download folder. Take all the defaults while installing.

It also installs a program called Media Player Classic that is a player only. It will play anything.

But this package installs all codecs you should need if that fails to solve your problem let me know by using the comment box below and we'll try the Microsoft package but I hate to use it.
