How to fix Explorer crashes that are due to video codecs in XP


Recently I have been coming across a growing problem with Explorer crashing while trying to view videos or opening a video folder.

This is to do with a media dll file that is clashing with video codecs or just basically becoming corrupt.

We all need video and audio codecs to listen to and watch our videos. Whether you download a music video from iTunes or just back up an old DVD to your computer.

The problem itself is caused when Windows trys to show the thumbnail of the video and then Explorer crashes.

To resolve the problem I have found that if you have videos dotted around in different folders. Rearrange the files into managable folders in a folder called Videos for example.
Then, click on the Start Menu and then select Run. In the Run box type "reg svr /u shmedia.dll" (without quotation marks) and hit the enter key. A command line window will pop up and then dissapear very fast. This just means the fix is applied.

This should resolve Explorer crashing.

After that I would then set about updating to the latest codecs. I recommend XP Codec Pack.
Click on the link that I have provided below to download XP Codec Pack.

XP Codec Pack can be installed on XP, Vista and Win 7 without running the program in compatibility mode.

Media Player cannot open a video. It says "Codec


This is a problem due to the various extensions that a video can have, as well as the music files for that DVD or file. I recommend downloading K-Lite Codec Pack, which has solved problems for me, and many of my friends and family.

Here's the website where you can download the installation:

You need CODECS for some DIVX files.

Use other media players like Media Player Classic instead.

Is there a way to play video's downloaded from an Aiptek 5100m camcorder on windows vista? I keep getting an error that says that an audio codec is need to play the video. Is this camera vista compatible


Go to http://www.videolan.org and download the VLC media player. That should play the files.

Use the K-Lite Codec Pack from http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/KLite-Codec-Pack-Full/1094057842/3 to update your codecs.

To see what codec your files are using, use the G-Spot Codec Appliance available from http://www.headbands.com/gspot/

Movie Formats To Work With Xbox 360


As you may have heard, with the Xbox 360 Flash Fall 2006 System Update they are adding support for WMV video playback from new sources. Videos can be streamed from a PC running Windows Media Connect, Windows Media Player 11, or the new Zune client player, and can also be played from Optical Disc and most USB mass storage devices. For all these sources, only the WMV video file format and codecs are supported. How do I know if a video file will work on the Xbox 360? Currently only the Windows Media Video (WMV) file format and codecs are supported. If you have a file with a ?.wmv? extension, then the odds are pretty good that it will work. Technical details on the types of files we support can be found at the end of this post, but the easiest way to find out if a file will work or not is to just try it. Hopefully after you click play the video will show up on your display, but if the content is not supported you will simply get an ?Unplayable Content? message blade from the side of the screen and then be returned to the Video blade. How do I create videos that will play on my Xbox 360? Windows Movie Maker, a standard feature of Windows XPSP2, will output WMV video files compatible with the Xbox 360 console. Either use the default settings when you finish a movie and click ?Save to my computer,? or just make sure that the output video format you select shows the file type as ?Windows Media Video (WMV).? Videos will usually look best when they are closest to the original resolution that they were created with. Try to create video files at least 360 pixels high in vertical resolution in order to minimize content upscaling on the console. If you decide you want finer control of the output video file format, download a version of Windows Media Encoder (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/) and then start encoding away. Optimal size and bitrate settings will vary depending on the source material you are encoding. As a general guideline though, 1.5 Mbps is a typical bitrate that should be suitable for most standard definition content, and 8 Mbps is a common bitrate for high definition content. Can I get more technical details about the kinds of files you support? WMV video files with the extension ?.wmv? are stored in a generic file container format known as ASF. ASF files can contain many different types of codecs within them. Xbox 360 supports most common WMV video codecs, as seen in the following chart: Supported Video Codecs: Name FourCC Windows Media Video 7 WMV1 Windows Media Video 8 WMV2 Windows Media Video 9 WMV3 Windows Media Video 9 Advanced Profile WVC1 There are some files with ?.wmv? extension that may play on a PC, but are unsupported on the Xbox 360 console. Windows Media Screen, Windows Media 9 Image (Photostory), and some older Microsoft codecs are unsupported, as seen in the following chart: Unsupported Codecs: Name FourCC Microsoft MPEG-4 Video Codec V3 MP43 Microsoft MPEG-4 Video Codec V2 MP42 Microsoft MPEG-4 Video Codec V1 MP41 Windows Media Screen V9 MSS2 Windows Media Screen V7 MSS1 Windows Media Video 9 Image WMVP Windows Media Video 9 Image v2 WVP2 ISO MPEG-4 Video V1 MP4S Anamorphic content with nonsquare pixels is currently unsupported on Xbox 360 console, and will be displayed as if the pixels were square. If you want to play such content on your console, it is recommended that you re-encode the content in a square pixel format.
