    Please clarify, are you seeing the yellow question mark on the Windows Media Player or on the Device Manager? It seems your problem is related to Audio driver, but I can't assume myself. Let me know with all the possible details so that I can give you the specific answer to fix your problem. Thanks

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.

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.

Dell latitude wont play mp4 video


dvancavage,

Your problem might be missing codecs. A codec (compressor/decompressor) is used to 'decode' a video or sound. A video practically needs 2 codecs; a video codec and an audio codec.

To resolve your issue, try installing K-Lite Codec Pack Pro. This will ensure you to play all types of videos and music in your computer. Install the program without changing the settings if you don't know how to change them.

Also, I suggest you un-install any other Media Players that you have and leave Windows Media Player 11 (upgrade it to 11; it's free!), QuickTime and iTunes. Set Windows Media Player 11 as your default too so you can automatically play all the files you want with WMP11. http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_li...
K-Lite Codec Pack! Download the latest PRO version/ It's FREE!

Thank You,

Windows media does not give audio on some avi files.vlc and nero players are fine . how /why is there a diffrence?Is it a codec problem if so can a different codec be copied into the windows media player...


This is due to the configuration of your AC3 filter or the absense of AC3 filter. VLC media player has these built in but for Windows Media player/Media centre you need to install & correctly configure the codec. Google KL codec pack & install the full version. Take all the default options, re-boot & all your audio will play through Windows Media player & media centre. KL codec pack also contains many other useful tools & codecs & nothing that will harm your PC. Don't forget to rate me.

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.
