Question about Microsoft Windows Media Player

1 Answer

Windows Media Player has stopped working

I use WMP to play streaming radio.
Websites that use radio players tell me I need to download WMP and when I do this, tell me that newer version is already available on my computer.
Have tried System Resore, Regcure and searched troubleshooting websites, but can't find solution.

Windows media player will not play DVD,s because of a number of queued files .


The easiest solution is to download VLC Player. It is free and located at:

http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html

Do NOT download from the myriad of other 'download' places that appear in Google ads if you use that instead of the link I provided.

VLC (Video LAN player) plays just about everything in the world and is a lot easier to use than what Windows provides.

Windows Media Player will try to delete your files if you try to remove the queued files.

What ever starts playing will play a second then stop and it take a couple seconds before it will start then play a second stop and we go through this through the whole thing.


To resolve this problem, make sure that UDP protocol is disabled for the Windows Media Player on the client computer. If UDP protocol is disabled, the player connects to streaming content through TCP or HTTP (if these are enabled on the Windows Media Server).

To disable the UDP protocol, follow these steps in the Windows Media Player:

For Windows Media Player version 7.0 and later:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  2. Click the Network tab.
  3. Under Protocols, clear UDP.
For Windows Media Player version 6.4:
  1. On the View menu, click Options.
  2. Click the Advanced tab.
  3. Select Streaming Media and click Change.
  4. Under Protocols, clear UDP.

Windows media player not working


Very the file you are trying to play is still there , if it is then create a new play list by allowing WMP to scan your system for playable media. If this fails or the above aint the latter then i'd suggest you uninstall WMP and reinstall it. WMP is in the control panel / add or remove components / Windows Components. You can also log in to microsoft web site and download the latese WMP and install it .

Windows media player can't play .wmv files


  • Firstly a UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterrupted Power Supply - meaning emergency backup power in the event of a mains power failure. This is not a type of PC.
  • Secondly - Windows media player does not support every type of movie format, as Microsoft Update it from time to time, some formats will still not be supported, these are known as codecs.
  • Thirdly, codecs to support your particular format can usually be downloaded and added to Windows Media Player, however i can not think of any reason .wmv files are not supported by Windows Media Player.

You could try re-downloading the latest version of Windows Media Player from one of the links provided below.
WMP 11 will support the latest codecs, but if for some reason you find yourself needing the older version, use WMP 10.

You will most likely have to remove your current version of WMP, and you can do this by using Windows Add/Remove programs.
  1. Click on the Start menu button ( bottom left corner of your screen. )
  2. Click on Control Panel.
  3. Click on Add or Remove Programs.
  4. Click on Windows Media Player in the list.
  5. Click Remove ( right hand side of the listing )

Microsoft WMP 11 is available by clicking on this link:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/default.aspx

Microsoft WMP 10 is available by clicking on this link:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/10/default.aspx

WMV 11 is available by clicking on this link:
