Anyones know how to play flv video on satio media player?i did'nt see the playlist of flv video on media player...need to play and choose video from file manager to watch the video,but can't r


The problem is your satio media player is not support flv file, if you want to solve this problem, you just need a flv video converter to convert this flv to the common video that supported by the media player, maybe you can try to convert the video to mp4. Good luck.

I am trying to download music I purchased on itunes to my mp3 player. It shows it on the list when I have it on the computer, but does not show or play on the actual mp3 player. What do I do>


Hi dasdis07...

You did not say what manufacture your MP3 player is so it is hard to tell you what to do.
I will assume you have a normal MP3 player...not an Ipod.
Check to see what format your MP3 player will play...because the I-tunes songs are in ACC.
Normal everyday players play MP3,WMA,ect...but will not play ACC that plays on ipods.
You will also need to download (FREE) and run a media converter so that you can convert your ACC music files to MP3,WMA,etc files that will play on your MP3 player.
Once you have your music converter and on Windows Media Player, then you can transfer them to your MP3 player
What your going to have to do is follow these instructions below:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Music to MP3 Player

1...You must download and install Windows Media Player 11 on your computer.
NOTE...Some older MP3 players will not work with Windows Media Player 11 or Windows 7 with Windows Media Player 11.
If this happens to you, then you will have to uninstall Windows Media Player 11 and install Windows Media Player 10.
2...After you have downloaded and installed Media Player on your computer.
3...Open Media Player on your computer.
4...Install all your music into Media Player that you want to install on your MP3 player.
5...Plug in your MP3 player to the computer using your Data/Sync cord, be sure that Windows Media Player is on.
6...Media player should recognize the MP3 player and sync with it.
7...After it is sync'ed with the computer,you can add the music you have installed into Windows Media Player to your MP3 Player.

What I do is download the klite codec mega pack and be sure to check Windows Media Player as one of the players to use it on when you download klite in the configurations. Or you can go and get VLC media player which has all the codecs you will need to play these files. This is what I use. So I know it works. Here are the links below. I hope that this assisted you. Thanks for using FixYa! John

How to install windows media audio player in the computer


Although Windows Media player is OK - it wont play all formats and all codecs. The BEST player on the market is K-lite's codec pack's media player. It is free and will play just about ANY format - even .flv files.

I have downloaded the Youtube grabber file to My Documents and that was successful. But now that I am trying to play the clips on windows media player, it will not play. Says something about wrong file...


No usually media player will not play this type of file it will be a FLV type file format.
You can download some stand alone player to play the fiiles like this.

OR you can also download and install this package, this will allow Media PLayer to play the UTube files as well.
Both works well.
I hope this will help your out.


And IF your problem was solved, kindly do Rate!

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:
