Go to your control panel and double click on "Add Remove Programs". A menu will pop up indicating all the programs on your computer. click on the button to remove "uninstall" the media player. You can reinstall later when you want.

Update the media player to the newest version.
When media playersclip_image002.gif 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 videosclip_image003.gif 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 computerclip_image004.gif, 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 softwareclip_image005.gif, such as iTunes for iPod devices.
Then, add the new video file to the software library and drag the new file to the deviceclip_image006.gif.
Once the video is in the correct format, the codecs in the media player should read the converted video file.

I cant watch videos on my computer no more why?


do you have video software installed ? Real Player, Jet Audio, Windows Media Player .......etc

make sure you have them and if you're trying to play a move, look at the extension ( Name.WMV) .WMV is for windows media video, which works on windows media player. you have to have the right program to play the video you want depending on the extension.

I have Jet Audio, its a very good program that can play many types of movies. you just go to preferences ---> file type associations ---> then check all and it will play almost any video or audio file you have. without needing to download all other software. One For All

Just installed nero 7 software on my comp. and really messed up all my music files. all my saved files have lost there names & are know numbered tracks of nero media type. Same applys to media i...


hi sir,

by default, you have a music player installed on your system or maybe using windows media player before nero 7 was installed, unluckily, when you did installed your nero 7 it has it's own music player. by the time nero finishes the installation, nero prompts you what media types you are using, by default, nero had selected it's own files types...thats why your music compilation and playlist messed up.

in order to get things back, just right click any music files you have, go to properties, click change for types of file then select the application you want play with your music.
