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.

What videos can it play?


Any videos that are in the proper format.

Download and install the "Sansa Firmware Updater", connect your Fuze, and run the Updater. Besides making sure that your Fuze has the most up-to-date firmware, it'll allow you to download the "Sansa Media Converter", which can convert most videos directly onto your Fuze in a format that it can play.

Hello sir, when i play audio mo3 songs in media player this erer comes where can i solve this problem thanks microsoft mpeg-1 50 codec download Many thanks Shak


This is a Codec problem.

If you have a song which has an .mp3 extension. Changed it to .mp2 and it will now play fine without searching for a Microsoft MPEG-1 (50) Codec.

Open the folder with the MP3 file in it that you want Windows Media Player to play.

Click on "Organize" then "Folder and Search Options". Choose the view tag.

Untick "Hide extensions for known file types". Click "OK".

Right click in blank area of the folder. Choose "Properties" then the "Customize" tab. Select "Documents" from the drop down menu. Click "OK".

You will now see files in the folder with their extensions. Change the extension of the file you want WMP to play from ".mp3" to ".mp2".

Double click the file. It will play in WMP.

Divx & Codec for Vista


-Unfortunately Windows media player is only loaded with a few codecs for video so you will need a codec pack found HERE

-just click Direct link and download and install the codec pack. Now you should be able to play 99.8 percent of video files in any format in WMP.

-As for myself, I swear by VLC media player as no additional codecs are required. its fast and easy to use. You can grab it HERE

My girlfriend downloaded a video from her cell on to a Kingston 2GB MicroSD memory card. She is trying play the video with windows media player, but it does not recognized the file. What does she need to...


If you're trying to play it on the Sansa you need to use Sansa Media Converter to get it into a format the Sansa understands. If you are trying to play it in Windows then you need to have the right codec installed. To do that you'll need to know what format the video is in (MPEG-2? MPEG-4? etc.) and then find the right codec via Google and install it.

How do I play MPEG recordings?


Using Windows Media Player You need Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher and Sharp G.726 Audio Codec in order to play MPEG4 files from the Memory Stick on your PC. If you are not currently using Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher. Important: The Sharp G.726 Audio Codec needed to play MPEG4 files is no longer signed by Microsoft. If Sharp G.726 Audio Codec is not properly installed on your PC, it will not play MPEG4 Audio. Using DivX® You can also download a free DivX® Player and codec to play your MPEG and other video format files. DivX® for Windows is a free codec built to play every version of DivX content. The DivX codec also plugs into your existing video software so you can view and create high-quality DivX videos at a fraction of the original size. The DivX codec also adds DivX video playback support to most popular media players.
