I use Windows XP Professional original copy, & I'm trying to watch a wmv file on Windows Media Player 11. I get this error message: Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.

How to play wmv files


Windows Media Video, or WMV files, is a type of video that can be played on your computer and portable media players. In the past, computer users have been known to have difficulties opening these files due to a flaw in Windows Media Player or the WMV file. These issues have since been resolved with the newer versions of Windows Media Player and other similar media players. WMV files should now open and play with ease.

Begin by downloading the latest version of Windows Media Player (see link in Below). http://www.filewin.net/Windows-Media-Player/download/?p=AU-DNM Windows Media Player is the default player for Windows Media Video files. If you have just purchased a new computer, the computer probably already has the latest version of the program. Right click on the WMV file you want to play. Select "Open With." Several different programs will appear in a small box. Choose "Windows Media Player." Windows Media Player will then open on your computer. Wait for the WMV file to load. When it does, a message may appear in Windows Media Player informing you that the WMV file is missing an extension. Click "Yes" and Windows Media Player will still attempt to load the file. The WMV file should then begin playing in Windows Media Player. Hope this helps.

You can not play WMV or ASF media on a website with Internet Explorer's Media Bar turned on. Internet Explorer has its own player for the Media Bar. To get around the c00d11cd error being generated you need to turn the Media Bar off. To disable Internet Explorer's (version 6) Media Bar click the Media button on the main Toolbar, then click "Media Options" in the new pane that opens. Now select "settings", and then un check "Play web media in the bar".
There is no need to restart your machine as this will take effect immediately.

You have a "playlist" on your PC that you are trying to copy to a CD-R. When you hit the copy button it goes straight to the c00d11cd error!
The most likely cause is DRM. Check the songs on your "playlist" to see if any of the content protected. To do this simply "right click" on each song, then select the "license tab". If any of the songs are protected then you can NOT copy them without the appropriate DRM authority. (DRM = Digital Rights Management) You will need to check with the site you purchased from to see the level of DRM used.

You have a "playlist" on your PC that you are trying to copy to another computer. When you try and play on the new computer it goes straight to the c00d11cd error!
The most likely cause is DRM. (DRM = Digital Rights Management)
It is likely you purchased and downloaded from a site Like Walmart.com Online stores like these set restrictions on what you can do with the .WMA files you download. It is likely that the DRM licence for your download restricts you copying to another PC. You will need to check with the site you purchased from to see the level of DRM used.
-----------------------------------------------
You can not copy songs from a CD in the CD drive to your hard disk. Windows Media Player generates the c00d11cd error.

The most likely cause is that something has gone wrong with the special file responsible for the "encoding". The name of the file is: wmadmoe.dll
The first thing we need to do is re-register this file with Windows XP To do this go to the "Start Menu" and select "Run". Now type in the following: regsvr32 wmadmoe.dll

If this does not work then the file itself may be corrupt. To fix this go to the "Start Menu" again and select "Run". Now type in the following: sfc /scannow
This will now scan your XP machine to see if there are any corrupt system files. If there are any then XP will prompt you for the XP CD so it can get a new copy... This may help you resolve the c00d11cd error.

This will get you up and running again, however due to some underlying problems with your installation you may actually need to re-install Windows Media Player.

Please rate this fixya

Can't copy files to and from Windows Media Player


If the music service subscription that you originally used to transfer these files has expired, then you will get this error message.

Also, you have to fully resynchronize to the original computer yo connected the player to every 30 days.

Windows media player can't play .wmv files


  • Firstly a UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterrupted Power Supply - meaning emergency backup power in the event of a mains power failure. This is not a type of PC.
  • Secondly - Windows media player does not support every type of movie format, as Microsoft Update it from time to time, some formats will still not be supported, these are known as codecs.
  • Thirdly, codecs to support your particular format can usually be downloaded and added to Windows Media Player, however i can not think of any reason .wmv files are not supported by Windows Media Player.

You could try re-downloading the latest version of Windows Media Player from one of the links provided below.
WMP 11 will support the latest codecs, but if for some reason you find yourself needing the older version, use WMP 10.

You will most likely have to remove your current version of WMP, and you can do this by using Windows Add/Remove programs.
  1. Click on the Start menu button ( bottom left corner of your screen. )
  2. Click on Control Panel.
  3. Click on Add or Remove Programs.
  4. Click on Windows Media Player in the list.
  5. Click Remove ( right hand side of the listing )

Microsoft WMP 11 is available by clicking on this link:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/11/default.aspx

Microsoft WMP 10 is available by clicking on this link:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/10/default.aspx

WMV 11 is available by clicking on this link:
