Sounds like Autoplay is not configured. You can see how to change your Autoplay settings on Microsoft's web site here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/change-autoplay-settings#1TC=windows-7. Autoplay is a strange duck, doesn't always work regardless of settings. You can also open 'computer', which in Windows 81 shows as your User Name, not 'Computer' or 'My Computer' like older versions, then right-click Drive: D, and click 'Play with VLC Media Player', which is the best player I believe - I've used it for years.

SOURCE: Look at this,previously i have been downloading

You're not really supposed to download youtube videos to your computer in a fashion not intended by youtube. Regarding the files themselves your probably missing some plugin, perhaps after recent update. Or more likely the files aren't being downloaded and saved fully/properly, leading to corrupt data. Youtube and other sites will take actions to try and prevent videos from being downloaded, and when they do something new the software you used to download probably isn't updated to that yet. It's important you know that if produces of the video find that you downloaded their content you could face court. To make everything simpler and safer it's better to just watch in browser as intended.

Watch WMV on Mac with VLC Media Player</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>VLC is a media player like QuickTime and Windows Media Player. Many view VLC is a good alternative to the these traditional media players because VLC is available for many different operating systems and is an open source software project that is supported by many dedicated programmers across the world.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Until recently, only experimental versions of VLC for Mac OS X could play WMV videos, but no longer. VLC for Mac OS X now supports WMV video. You can download VLC from the VLC media player for Mac OS X download page.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>There are three types of downloads on this page: "Universal Binary", "Intel Package", and "PowerPC Package". The Universal Binary should work on any Mac, the Intel Package is meant for newer Intel-powered Macs, and the PowerPC Package is meant for older Macs that use the PowerPC processor. If you are unsure of whether you've got an Intel Mac or a PowerPC Mac, use the Universal Binary Package.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Once downloaded, double click on the dmg file, wait for a Finder window to open, and then drag the VLC icon to your "Applications" folder. In addition, VLC media Player supports audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>2.

If you have an older Mac, you should download the .hqx file. If you don't, then it doesn't really matter. Just make sure you get the English version.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>3. Watch WMV on Mac with Flip 4 Mac</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>As mentioned in the above that Microsoft won't upgrade windows media player 9, Microsoft did offer an alternative for Mac users: Windows Media Components for QuickTime Flip4Mac, which is developed by Telestream. With this QuickTime component, you can play WMV and WMA files directly in QuickTime Player and watch streamed WMV videos.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>If you just want to play WMV files on Mac, you can choose one of the above ways to do it. We recommend VLC player considering its powerful functions. But for converting WMV videos, this video converter mac will be a good choice, it is such an powerful software that it can act as <a href="http://www.macvideoconverter.org/guide/flv-converter-for-mac.html">flv converter for mac</A>, mp3 converter mac, <a href="http://www.macvideoconverter.org/guide/avi-converter-mac.html">avi converter mac</A>, mp4 converter mac, Mac MKV Converter, etc.</SPAN><span></SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN>

Where can i download window player for toshiba dynabook t4/495cce driver


Hi,

Thank you for choosing FixYa! Regarding your concern for a media player download, I advise to get the VLC media plyer instead. Why? Because VLC has the most codecs a media player could offer to play all types of audio and video formats. Follow the instructions below.
  1. Click on the link http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html
  2. Click on "Installer Pack"
  3. On the next page, wait for the download prompt to come up and click on Run (for Internet Explorer Browser) or Save file (for Mozilla Firefox Browser).
  4. Wait for the download to complete and play any audio or video file.
There are cases where a media player displays distorted videos. That is because of missing codecs. With VLC you have nothing to worry about. I am using this, so as a technician I highly recommend you to try it. Thank you for choosing FixYa! Enjoy!

My dvd writer reads cd but not dvd why



The wavelength of the laser is different, 780nm for CD and 640 for the DVD, there are two LEDs inside the optical unit. One of the two may be lame.

Change the optical drive, or at worst player.



However, the problem is easy solve and, what is more, the solution is free.

Download and install the free VLC from http://www.videolan.org/vlc/. Run it from the Start menu and insert the disc you want, and it should start playing the disc immediately. VLC can be used to play most other media files, such as downloaded videos. VLC is a powerful media playback application and supports DVDs and many other media file types.

Sometime Windows media player does not play the different audio video formats. So for this we can use other player which are the alternate to windows media player. And these are easily available on internet and some are even more better than windows media player such as vlc player, klm codec.I personally recommend these two should always be in a our pc. So you can use these player and it will definitely solve your problem. You can download it from www.videolan.org and www.filehippo.com/software/multimedia/ and http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/download-media-player-classic-hc.html

Hi simontwaley,

Try to download VLC Player. It might resolve the issue. You can download it from www.videolan.org.

The issue that your encountering is because your media player lacks those codecs that needs to be installed for you to be able to view those files. It is a common issue for almost all windows OS that doesnt have those codecs.

VLC Player can play almost all of the types of video files. Without installing those codecs.

Laptop will not play dvd 'KNIGHT RIDER' original


This is a common issue with Vista where few of the applications which may not work even if they are compatible with Vista.

I recommend you to try downloading and installing Service Pack 1 for Vista if you are using a Genuine or preinstalled version of Vista from the link below :

http://download.microsoft.com/download/3/a/9/3a9b72c2-527d-4694-8a49-84c056d4c34d/Windows6.0-KB936330-X86-wave0.exe

The issue should be fixed if the issue is with the Operating System because of which few applications are not operating correctly.

Additionally, I recommend you to try other applications like KLM Codec pack or VLC Media Player which use less RAM and Processing power when compared to Quick Play and Windows Media Player and I use them myself in my PC.

These applications are also capable of playing more video and audio formats which Quick Play and Windows Media Player cannot play.

Download K Lite Mega Codec Pack (KLM) which includes Media Player Classic to play most of the audio and video files from the link below :

http://files.3dnews.ru/pub/soft/multimedia/codec/klmcodec417.exe

You can download the VLC Media Player for yor Notebook from the link below :

http://www.videolan.org/mirror.html?mirror=http://mirror.services.wisc.edu/mirrors/videolan/&file=vlc/0.8.6i/win32/vlc-0.8.6i-win32.exe

Better way is to save the file in the Notebook and double click it once the download is completed to install it.

I am sure this is going to resolve your play back issues.
