Not supported file format what does this mean


It means that whatever you are trying to play is not compatible with the player. It could also mean that the media you want to play is faulty, so even though it says it can play MP3 files for instance, and you are trying to play an MP3 file, it's so corrupted that it can't recognise the file as being an MP3.
Often the player requires a CODEC to play some files. If you player is the type that can accept new CODECS, such as Windows Media Player, you can get them free online by searching for "K-Lyte CODEC Packs".

Cannot watch video in my computer


Update the media player to the newest version.
When media players go through upgrades, new codecs are often added to the player along with new features.
These new codecs give the player an ability to play videos in additional formats.
Download and install a codec pack for your computer-based media player from a codec website, like Free-Codecs.

See Below
http://www.free-codecs.com/download/k_lite_codec_pack.htm
The K-Lite Codec Pack, for instance, contains multiple codecs and works with multiple media players, which gives all of the media players that are installed on your system the capability to play any video file that uses those codecs.
Once you download a codec pack, go to the "Downloads" folder on your computer, right-click the codec pack and choose "Extract All" to extract the codecs and move the codecs into a folder on your "C:" drive.
The codecs integrate into your computer-based media players automatically.

Get a new player. If you have updated your player and installed all of the available codecs, and video still won't play in the player, the player may just not have the necessary components to play your video files.
Download and install a new player, such as Winamp or the VLC Player, to your system.

Personal Media Players
Find out which video formats your media player accepts.
This information should be provided in the user's guide that came with your player. iPod, for instance, accepts video only in the M4V, MP4 and MOV formats, according to the Apple website.
Convert the video file to a format supported by your personal media player in an online conversion system.
Some online systems that can make video conversions include Movavi Online Convert and YouConvertIt.
Remove the original video file from the media player using the player's software, such as iTunes for iPod devices.
Then, add the new video file to the software library and drag the new file to the device.
Once the video is in the correct format, the codecs in the media player should read the converted video file.

My video cannot be played


Can't really tell from your description what the exact problem is.

If it won;t load then you may be trying to load either a corrupt file or one not supported by the player. Media player handles a lot of file types so it usually is a bad video file. Other than a few Macintosh or apple based video formats havn't had to use another player.

if you can hear the video then all you need to do is install a video codec to see the picture. You can download a few free codec packs. These will have literally hundred of codecs. A codec is simply a translate or a type of video driver. Each is different . Some like DivX allow for a very small file size with a great picture quality. (This is called compression)A few seconds of high grade video may be say 501-0 mb in size using DivX but without a codec it would be 200-300mb in size for the exact same video. That is why they are used. The problem is there are so many differant ones you can't be sure of which one you will need. A codec pack has hundreds of these which are then automatically loaded when needed. Two real good and FREE packs are K-Lte and FFD-Show. Just download one of the packs (pick any of the setups but you only need on of the two smaller ones)
Just go to http://www.free-codecs.com/ and pick one of the two and install and this will fix any codec issues.

If it possible that the media player is the problem. ie the program is corrupt. You can download a new copy from Microsoft and reload it and you can also get one of the codec packs which comes with a version of player.

If none of this fits your problem just respond here and someone should be able to help you out if you can describe the problem with more details.

I have error code 80040265. What to do now?? Thank you for your help.


Cannot play back the file. The format is not supported. (Error=80040265)? Try installing the codec needed to play the unsupported file format. If you are using windows install codec "K-Lite Mega Codec Pack or K-Lite Codec Pack" Hope it helps.

Codec error:use window media player and if play using window media player it is not playig(DVD file) 


Try using a different software to play the file, such as BSPlayer or VLC.
Also, I'd recommend you installing a codec pack, such as K-Lite Codec Pack. Windows Media Player MIGHT play the file once the codec pack is installed!

Regards,
Pelu.

Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.


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.
