Download K-lite codec pack from the internet and install it on your system. After installing you can play your audio or video file of any format.

Have you tried the file with another player like vlc or power dvd etc? If not try it.
If the problem is codec issue, installing codec pack will definitely fix it. You can install codecs pack like acemega codec pack, klite mega codec pack.
If you need them, download it from here..
Klitemegacodec pack (Open the page and select anyone from the list to download) install the program and restart your program, and again play the file which wasn't playable on the Media Player.
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

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.

SOURCE: Windows Media Player cannot play

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Codecs, to be in Layman's; are the the files necessary to play Audio/Video files.
There are 2 ways to play that file you are having trouble in;

  • Either download and install a Codec Pack, like this. And play your file in Windows Media Player.
  • Download and Install VLC media Player, its a powerful player with all the codecs with it. (I'll recommend this, as I love VLC's power and ease)


If you have any Confusion, questions or issues regarding your problem do tell me.
Thank you for using FixYa!, Keep visiting..
If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating and a testimonial will be esteemed.
Concerned, Nooh

Error 80004004 keeps poping up and has problems connecting to the internet had netbook for a week


Windows Media Player Error 80004004 is generally produced when Windows Media Player can not complete an action because you have cancelled it. For example if you are downloading a DRM file from an online music download store such as Napster or MSN Music and you cancel the DRM licence acquisition part, Windows Media Player will produce the error message.
You are recommended not to cancel this part of the playback process because without a DRM licence your music or video file will not actually play in Windows Media Player.
However should you cancel the DRM licence download many sites allow you to redownload the licence with ease, simply go back to the site and locate a button or selection named "Redownload"

Without mother board cd ,how can we start music in laptop


I think you're talking about a CD player in the computer, right? You can download and play mp3 music files on software on your computer. Windows Media Player will do this. You can download free music from a site called Azureus Vuse. After you download the music files to your computer, you can click on them and they will come up in Windows Media Player and play. Good luck, hope I answered your question.

My acer laptop was formated, since I got it back I cant play any dvd nor cd... I do have media player but message appear stating that the following files cant be played..


Yes, you have missed the codec files.

Download "Windows essentials Codec pack", below is the link

http://download.softpedia.ro/dl/7dd4bba62e0c22582981d1a9546796dc/4b45cc15/100071211/software/MULTIMEDIA/VIDEO/DIVX/WECPSetup.exe

Install this, you will be able to play almost all files in your windows media player.

I recommend you use VLC player, it can play any file formats both Audio or Video without any Codec and moreover it's completely open source. Below is the VLC player download link

http://www.videolan.org/mirror-geo.php?file=vlc/1.0.3/win32/vlc-1.0.3-win32.exe

That's it

Windows media has sound no visual when playing


Your media player might be having problems getting the video feed from the USB. try copying the file to your local disk and play the movie from there.
