My media player want play dvd's


Maybe your screen resolution needs to be higher? What type of error message are you getting? Are these dvd's that you were able to play before?

Most computers will have problems playing dvd's that someone made for you on their computer. Try a store purchased dvd and see if it plays.

You can always reinstall windows media player at Microsoft's site below.

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/windows-media-player

You can also try the VLC Player. It comes with drivers and codec. I've seen it solve a lot of issues that Media Player could not fix.

Try using VLC as your player. Go to www.google.com and in the search box type "download vlc" (without the quotes). Look for the Video Lan download from site www.videolan.org/vlc Download and install it. It downloads and installs in 3 minutes or so. It's a very fast player, smooth and it can play just about any type of dvd formats and media. It's totally FREE.

PLAY HD CONTENT IN YOUR LOW PROCESSOR SPEED PC TOO.


Playing HD content in your pc which got low processing speed with lots of lagging and poor synchronization of audio and video, has become a great issue. Here is the solution for that problem.

Step 1 : Download Media Player Classic - Home Cinema from : http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/.

Step 2 : Download Core AVC Video Decoder from http://hotfile.com/dl/47202507/bb451dd/CoreAVC_H264_Video_Codec_Pro_v2.0.0.rar.html
Or
http://rapidshare.com/files/396874926/CoreAVC_H264_Video_Codec_Pro_v2.0.0.rar

Step 3 : Install Media Player Classic Home Cinema. And now install CoreAVC Video decoder.

Step 4 : Open Media Player Classic Home Cinema. And click VIEW->OPTION.

Step 5 : OPTION windows appears. Select "External Filters " and click "Add Filter" and then select "CoreAVC Video Decoder" from the list and click OK.

Step 6 : In that same "External Filters" window choose "prefer" radio button visible under " add filter" button. Click OK.

Step 7 : You are DONE. Now your Laptop/PC will play HD content easily. Sometimes this Decoder is supported by Windows Media Player and it will also play the HD content easily after you follow the above steps properly.

Note : In some cases, when you install the Core AVC Video Decoder, even Windows Media Player and other media player make use of it and you can run any kind of video files, even you can run FULL HD Videos in Windows Media Player Itself.

The Media Player Home Classic is preferred because, it buffers the whole video first (very fastly) and then it plays. Hence there is no lag in playing Videos.

Thank You.

We have a error the error code is 0xcood1199


you've got this error because you are playing file that is not supported to your windows media player. try to play it with other media player just live VLC player, Real Player, or DVD Player or try to convert the file using a conversion program and convert it to wmv or any known media player that windows media player can support.

What does no media player mean!


Hi,


With every operating system you usually have a media player to play music. No media player means that either you do not have a media player that may play songs or you have a corrupted one.

Note - Media player is a Microsoft's product. You may have Winamp, Realplayer but not Windows Media Player.

Any further help, let me know.

Thanks for using "Fixya".

My windows media player won't work. It says about missing codec. I've downloaded the codec but still there is a problem.


Ok. Windows Media player is really limited on playing different formats. It is more a music store (like iTunes) than a media player. You can try an OpenSource media player named MPlayer. It plays almost ALL media format on the universe and beyond. (A bit exaggeration here). The best part is FREE.You can download MPlayer from here.

Windows media player


To Update Your Windows Media player download the K-Lite codex which will come with its own player and its better than VLC player, the only advantage VLC has is that one can easily integrate subtitles of all formats, other than that K-Lite is better. Hope it helps, Goodluck =)
