Go to Filehippo.com and download and istall K-Lite Codec Pack 5.90 (Full) it should beef up your windows media player to accommodate most codec's.

If that doesn't do the job, again from filehippo, download and install VLC Media Player.

Both programmes are freeware.

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".

My windows media player is not working on video files?


Many video files require a custom codec (a decoder/encoder). There are codec packs you an download and install that will play most if not all video files. Google "windows 7 codec pack". Don't forget to run your anti virus check on it before installing.

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.


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..

Every time i open the GOM player it would ask for "FIND codec"


GOM Player includes many codecs (XviD, DivX, FLV1, AC3, OGG, MP4, H263) Along with different media format such as AVI, MPG, MPEG and DAT, GOM Player also supports streaming Windows media format (WMV, ASF, ASX).

Possible Reason:

* Ensure that you have downloaded a genuine version and not a broken file, which is likely to miss some codecs, GOM is a FREE media player with popular audio & video codecs built-in. So you won't need to install separate codecs for most videos. For those videos that require a separate codec, GOM Player will find one.

* Without the appropriate codec, you'll be prohibited from playing AV files/the codec for which the file you are playing is missing (playback error), which prompts you to "Find Codec" screen. In the case you need other codecs, the 'Find Codec' popup will assist you in searching for the correct codec to play your file. If you didn't find any: first reason is likely to be the issue.

Fixes:

*Search Result will be shown on a new internet page. Once youve found it, simply download and install to watch the AV files.

A codec is required to play this file. To determine if this codec is available to download from the Web.


What you need to do is download and install a codec pack. Windows Media Player will not download the right ones, you need to follow this link and install.

Choose to download the Full version.

http://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm


Also, you may want to download the following program called VLC. VLC is a media player too but it is a better player than Windows Media Player.


But either way, once you install the codecs, you will be fine. You may need to reboot after installation. It will ask you to reboot if need be.

Good Luck!!

Go to sourceforge.net and search for mediainfo. Download the latest version for your system (it's free). This utility can tell you what codecs are required for most media file formats and will provide links to where you can download codecs required for a specific file.

try this solution from microsoft:
I can’t play a file that Windows Media Player supports. What should I do?Most likely, a required codec isn't installed on your computer. Typically, Windows Media Player automatically downloads any required codecs from the Internet and installs them. However, this may not happen for the following reasons:
• The necessary codec (typically, a non-Microsoft codec) isn't available on the codec server.
• You have an older version of the Player and your automatic codec-download option isn't enabled.
• The Internet security settings for your browser are set too high.
• You're not connected to the Internet.
If you have an older version of the Player (prior to Windows Media Player 9 Series), you can check your codec download setting by doing the following:
1.
In Windows Media Player, on the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Player tab.
2.
In the Auto upgrade area, make sure Enable automatic codec download is checked, and specify how often you want the Player to check for updates.
You can change your Internet security settings (if you are logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group) by doing the following:
1.
In Control Panel, open Internet Options.
2.
Click the Security tab, and then click Internet.
3.
In the Security level for this zone area, click Default Level.
If you can’t play the file after completing this procedure, restart your computer, and then try to play the file again.
If you still can’t play the file, try to play another file with the same file name extension. If you can play this file, then there is a problem with the file that you want to play. For more troubleshooting information, see the Windows Media Player Multimedia File Formats Web
