Hey!

Windows Media Player can play limited types of file formats. If you get that message, it means that the file may work but you might encounter some problems like there's sound but no video or no sound but has video. You can download codecs upgrades but it will download only specific ones.

You can download VLC media player. It's a very nice piece of freeware that allows you to play almost all types of file formats. And in case the file that you have is damaged, it will attempt to repair to so that you can play it.

Click here to get to the download link.

Hope this helps! :D

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.
http://www.real.com/realplayer

http://download.cnet.com/Winamp/3000-2141_4-10251792.html
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
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.

Not able to watch DVD's or videos on your PC? No picture only audio?


Reason
If you're having a problem reading DVD's or video files on your PC the this is because you either don't have a media player installed on your system or that you don't have a recent or updated codec pack installed on your PC.

Codec update
Firstly lets get to the Codec pack. A Codec pack is a list of video decoding information that, when added to your systems codec library, reads and converts the code and instructions from the video clip to your video player. To be able to play new videos or DVD's you will need to have the latest Codec update available. You can get the latest codec pack here. All you have to do is click the Download [ K-Lite Codec Pack 6.9.0 Full ]. Once downloaded you will need to install it and you may need to reboot after the setup is complete. VLC Media Player comes with Windows Media Player Classic and a host of audio/video decoders needed to play any video or audio file.

A great Video/Media Player
If you don't have a media/video player installed then you should try this great media application I found on the net. It's called VLC Media Player and it can literally play ANY media file, especially HD videos that Media Player Classic can't handle, and the best thing is that it is totally 100% FREE. It can be found on the VLC website here.

Extra
If you want to customise your VLC media player you can, just head over to the VLC skins department and get the skin pack.

Not able to play video in philips gogear pls suggets


Hello,

Media players need the matching video format: for GoGear Vibe it is SMV.
To convert video from AVI to SigmaTel Motion Video, use the Media Converter Software from the manufacturer. For the videos you'd like to convert, be sure to update video codecs in Windows Media Player 10 or higher.

Vibe players have different display sizes, so you'll need the matching Converter for your player.
When you have the United States version SA5285/37 next site gives all support, including the Arcsoft video converter:
http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=SA5285/37&slg=en&scy=US
note
There's and update for the Arcsoft converter, for downloading directly YouTube films:
click on EXTRAS at the top right hand corner of the Arcsoft main screen.
At the pull down menu click UPDATE AND PATCHES, Arcsoft will check
and let user download and install the updated Stream Ripper feature
( streaming videos need flv video codec )

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.

When i down load a movie from a sd hc card the movie won't work on the window media player it say codec problem


You need a good codec pack. I would suggest KL codec pack full. You can download it for free from here. http://www.codecguide.com/

It will allow you to play just about any video format in windows media player. Note if you are using a 64 bit operating system you need the 64 bit codec pack. Don't forget to rate me.

My windows media player wont play movies


Try downloading VLC player, if this does not play your videos then it is your Drive that needs a driver update or has gone bad. If VLC player does play it or asks you to install mpeg2 codecs, then all you need to do is google "mpeg2 codec download for windows media player X" (X being the current version of WMplayer you are using). The reason behind this problem is that Windows media player does not come preloaded with a full library of codecs, there are packages of codecs that you can download such as divx codecs that will have the majority of commonly used video compression decompressors.

No support driver


This is not the fault of your CD/DVD-ROM.
This is the problem of video codecs that need to be installed to play the video.

Please download and install the file from

http://ftp.freenet.de/pub/filepilot/windows/multimedia/video/k-lite_codec_pack/klcodec470f.exe

This will completely solve your problems.

Play dvd nothing - play s/d card (video) sound but no picture.


You need to update the dvd softwear. Check the default settings for playback of media,if it is set to windows media it won't work if you hav'nt installed the correct updates. Choose the Toshiba dvd player as the default player and it should work. If you prefer windows media then you can get the updated codecs from ' free-codecs.com ' Easier still,try uninstalling your windows media player and installing windows media 11, this will usually resolve the problem.
