Loopback IP I was trying to stream using Windows Media Encoder and all of a sudden my computer shut down for some reason. Since then, the Encoder program has been using my Looback IP address, because of this I can only broadcast to myself. The program won't let me manually type in my real IP address and open port number so others can access it like they use to. I have uninstalled the program and re-installed it since then, also shut down and restarted my computer, everything I can think of but the program still uses my Loopback IP (127.0.0.1) and I can't change it, leading me to believe it's not the program but something in the computer. Is there any way to shut off or disable the use of my loopback IP so I can stream again?

I don't think the loopback IP can be disabled. Some suggestions: Try looking in the Registry for the Windows Media Encoder settings. (uninstalling doesn't necessarily delete the registry settings) Make sure the program is running with the correct permissions (Run-As Administrator, for instance). Check your Windows firewall (or other security programs you have) to make sure it's not preventing it from working properly.

I had a similar problem with one of my computers at home. It actually turned out to be a virus on the computer, what I did to fix it was, called the customer support for my system with happened to be a dell and through tedious work they talked me through how to fix it. But it sounds to me like your problem is a virus, possibly a trojan horse that got in there somehow. You want to be careful though because I was told that each time the computer shuts off the virus spreads.
Good Luck,
Chris

Code for connect windows media center to tv


Instead of trying to connect this to your TV via 8-digit code, you should try running an HDMI cord from your computer to the back of your TV. Quality of picture is better, and it streams flawlessly.

Pc error 0x8007274d


Do you get this when you go to youtube?
If so it is a numbers don't match error.
To work around this problem, make sure that the Windows Media Encoder is running.
Check the port number that the encoder is using for the stream. This port number is listed at the bottom of the encoder in the stream reference section. Also check the port number in the Windows Media Administrator for the multicast station’s stream source. The port number for the stream source on the server and on the encoder should be the same.
Hope this helps, good fortune, please leave rating, thank you kindly

Hi In spain we have an apartment which has a wifi system in the golf clubhouse. It works fine with my PC laptop but not with an apple mac laptop. Is there any reason?


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls determine the IP address of the Windows laptop. Pls include Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS. Power off the Windows laptop. Thereafter, set the MAC to static IP address and copy the numbers from the Windows laptop to the Mac. Soon as the Mac is working, power on the Windows laptop. If ther wil be an instance that Windows displays that the IP/Network address is already in use. power down the Windows laptop. Modify the Mac by increasing the last digit of the static IP addres by at least 1. Try again.

This is of course assuming that the WiFi of the Mac is working and there are no security WEP/WPA being used on the WiFi router.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Streaming audio/video quality can be affected by connection rate and Internet congestion. Many types of interruptions between your computer, your player, your computer's OS, your local network, your ISP and a streaming server can exist and cause trouble....
When you listen to the live audio/video stream, the sound or video skips, cuts out or buffers if the player doesn't have enough network bandwidth, it will buffer. Try increasing your player's buffering setting.Also:
  • Make sure you are choosing the appropriate bandwidth version of a media stream based on your Internet connection.
  • Make sure you are choosing the appropriate bandwidth settings in an Internet media player or streaming audio/video recorder.
  • Make sure NOT to download applications or files while watching/listening to media streams. Your Internet connection is shared between all open applications including your web-browser, your download manager and your streaming player. Closing applications that use your Internet connection simultaneously with your streaming player may reduce buffering.
  • Close other unnecessary applications that may be open on your computer. Reboot your computer. If you have lots of other programs open, they may be using too much processor time and/or RAM for the player to work properly.
  • Make sure your Internet connection is fast enough to reliably listen to streaming audio and/or watch streaming video online. High speed Internet connection is recommended.
  • Make sure your computer is fast enough. If your computer is old, it might be too slow to play an audio/video stream regardless of what else it's doing.
  • Update your media players and streaming audio/video recorders regularly.
Internet congestion can slow down the delivery of the stream, make it difficult for you to connect or cause buffering. Often the interruption is temporary. Please try to connect a few times at different times of the day, if possible. If you repeatedly have problems connecting, please notify your ISP - there are often quick fixes they can make when they learn about your issue.

Try the above steps you will find a solution to your problem....100% it will work.....

There are many reasons for Windows to freeze on shutdown.

See if you can pinpoint your problem.

Try rolling back to the previous version of Media Player. Go to Control Panel, Add & Remove Programs. Click on Windows Media Player and select remove. It will give you the option to go back to the previous version.
