Not supported file format what does this mean


It means that whatever you are trying to play is not compatible with the player. It could also mean that the media you want to play is faulty, so even though it says it can play MP3 files for instance, and you are trying to play an MP3 file, it's so corrupted that it can't recognise the file as being an MP3.
Often the player requires a CODEC to play some files. If you player is the type that can accept new CODECS, such as Windows Media Player, you can get them free online by searching for "K-Lyte CODEC Packs".

Synced music files won't play on phone


You don't have a codec for that particular format. Try changing the music file to a different format, like MP3.
A program like "Any Audio Convertor" should do that for you in Windows. There are many free windows apps that convert formats of music files. Or do a search for an Audio convertor on the Google play store, there are plenty of free apps. Typically music apps won't display music files they cann't play, it just saves clutter on their play list.

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.

Most videos I add to my mach speed trio v430, are in avi format, but when added to the player say file format error! they play on my computer in the VLC player, so i do not understand why they do not play...


I FOUND THE SOLUTION!
Hi. If you're like me you just bought one of Mach Speed's mp3/media players (I have the Trio/Eclipse Model G2, it looks like the Ipod Nano). I bought it at Big Lots for about $30. Everything works except i can't get video to play on it! Here's what i found after hours of trial and error:
Seems mine (hopefully this will work for yours) will ONLY play either FLV or RM files. If you have AVI or other kinds of video files you can use this great software to convert to FLV:
http://download.cnet.com/Koyote-Free-FLV-Converter/3000-2194_4-10832044.html?tag=mncol
It's free and it won't put a watermark on the video...which is great 'cause all the other free ones out there will. Anyway i hope this helps.

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.
