Question about HP Pavilion Media Center a1330n - AMD Athlon 64 2.4GHz Desktop Computer (Open Box Product, Limited Avai... (EL466AAABAOB)

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.

Making camera work with Yahoo Instant Messenger


Windows Media Encoder enables the ability for you to "LIVE" broadcast using your webcam utilising Windows Media Encoder 9 and your participant viewers watching you using Windows Media Player at the recieving end. So in other words, you are effectively setting up "your own" live streaming broadcasts either video, audio(such as internet radio) or both from your PC without using the likes of Skype, Yahoo, IM etc.

I have a hp laptop. stopped suddenly.


This can happen on occasion if you try to feed windows media player too many files esp. if those files are on an external device or server. Or are trying to sync to a device that is not plugged in

shut down and re-start but before doing anything else go to CONTROL PANEL / ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES / SERVICES and turn of the indexing service then set it to MANUAL.
Also ensure that Portable Media Serial Number Service is turned off and set to manual
Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service should also be turned off and set to manual.

Then do a shut down restart.
You should now be able to get back into media player. it may also be a god time to turn of media sharing in the Media player options.

All being well you might also notice a slight overall increase in computer speed.

Does thies parts work togeher ?? WLI-PCI-G300N too D-LINK Router?


Hi! the buffalo wireless adapter should connect the the dlink wireless router if the driver is properly setup and configured. and u have to setup as well the dlink router, bcoz there is an option on the router - WISH (Wireless Intelligent Stream Handling) prioritizes the traffic of various wireless applications. u can find that on the setup page and select advance and u will see the option WISH.. here is a help list in order for u to setup the router using the WISH Technology-
WISH is short for Wireless Intelligent Stream Handling, a technology developed to enhance your experience of using a wireless network by prioritizing the traffic of different applications.
WISH Enable WISHEnable this option if you want to allow WISH to prioritize your traffic. Priority Classifiers HTTPAllows the router to recognize HTTP transfers for many common audio and video streams and prioritize them above other traffic. Such streams are frequently used by digital media players.Windows Media Center Enables the router to recognize certain audio and video streams generated by a Windows Media Center PC and to prioritize these above other traffic. Such streams are used by systems known as Windows Media Extenders, such as the Xbox 360. AutomaticWhen enabled, this option causes the router to automatically attempt to prioritize traffic streams that it doesn't otherwise recognize, based on the behavior that the streams exhibit. This acts to deprioritize streams that exhibit bulk transfer characteristics, such as file transfers, while leaving interactive traffic, such as gaming or VoIP, running at a normal priority. WISH Rules A WISH Rule identifies a specific message flow and assigns a priority to that flow. For most applications, the priority classifiers ensure the right priorities and specific WISH Rules are not required. WISH supports overlaps between rules. If more than one rule matches for a specific message flow, the rule with the highest priority will be used.
NameCreate a name for the rule that is meaningful to you.Priority The priority of the message flow is entered here. Four priorities are defined:
  • BK: Background (least urgent).
  • BE: Best Effort.
  • VI: Video.
  • VO: Voice (most urgent).
ProtocolThe protocol used by the messages.Host 1 IP RangeThe rule applies to a flow of messages for which one computer's IP address falls within the range set here.Host 1 Port RangeThe rule applies to a flow of messages for which host 1's port number is within the range set here.Host 2 IP RangeThe rule applies to a flow of messages for which the other computer's IP address falls within the range set here.Host 2 Port RangeThe rule applies to a flow of messages for which host 2's port number is within the range set here. This will work if you will be able to setup the router and the buffalo.. and ofcourse for best performance of this product, it is always advise by the manufacturer to use the same brand in order to work with best features, but this device will work..

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

In windows media player 11, click on the small down arrow below library and select media sharing. Check the box for share my media then turn on you console. I dialog box will pop up asking you to approve file sharing. You can then customize your options for that device. If the dialog box dose not pop up you have a firewall problem. For the Iomega Media Drive, you have to use the software that came with it. Open the program click on configure, select the folders icon, and look next to your media folders and make sure DLNA is on otherwise your console cannot access those folders.

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.
