Windows media player won't work


Which operating system ? Which version of Media player ?
Though designed with Windows 7 in mind, Windows Media Player 11 (WMP 11) is fully compatible with Windows XP.

The trick is knowing which version of WMP 11 to download.
Different versions of the software exist not only for Windows 7, Vista, and XP, but also for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows XP.

Additionally, WMP 11 is only compatible with XP if it is using Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3. Before downloading the appropriate installation file, you will need to verify which version your system requires.

Open the "Start" menu.
Open "My Computer."

Click "Help", then select "About Windows."
This will display a window with system information.

Find the listing that specifies your Service Pack. If you are operating without Service Pack 2 or 3, you will need to install one (see Resources).


Open the "Start" menu and click "Run." Within the text field, type "winmsd.exe."

Click "OK." Select "System Summary."
Find the heading labeled "Item."

Under this heading should be the word "Processor."
The value associated with "Processor" will determine which version of Windows XP you are running.

If the value begins with "x86," you are running a 32-bit version.
If it begins with "ia64" or "AMD64," then you are running a 64-bit version.

Download the Windows Media Player installation file that matches your version of Windows (see Below).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/windows-media-player

Open the file once it has finished downloading.
This will launch the installation wizard.

Follow the onscreen instructions to install WMP 11.
The program should now run normally.
How to Fix Windows Media Center

Windows Media Center is the home entertainment hub on a Windows computer.
With Media Center, you can play live television, songs, DVDs and slideshows.

It is preinstalled on Windows XP Media Center Edition, Windows Vista Home Premium/Ultimate Edition and Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate editions.

From time to time, users run into issues trying to play audio or video files, or with an extender connected to Media Center.

Extenders are devices that allow you to "extend" the Media Center onto a TV screen or larger display.

The Xbox 360 gaming console is an example of an extender.
Launch Windows Media Center from your computer's Start menu.

Scroll down to "Music" on the Media Center home screen.
Select "Music library."

If you find an empty folder under "Music Library," navigate to the folder on your hard drive that stores your music file and add it to Media Center's library.

If the problem isn't an empty folder, look at the file extension on the music file that won't play. Media Center can't play files with unknown or incompatible extensions.

If you find a questionable extension, skip that file. Click once on another file with a different extension, one you know is compatible with Media Center, and then click "Open" to test if you can play that one.

Media Center will play MP3, CDA, WAV and other music file formats.
Open Windows Media Player from the Start menu if you receive a codec error while trying to play either audio or video files.

If you open the file in Media Player, the codec will download automatically.
You should then be able to play the file in Media Center.

Troubleshoot your firewall settings if a Media Center extender doesn't work.
You'll have a problem using an extender if Windows Firewall blocks it.

Go to "Control Panel" from the Start menu and double-click on "Windows Firewall."
Click on "Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall."

Click to check "Media Center Extenders."
Click on "Apply."

Check external speaker cables to make sure they're connected if you can't hear any sound. Check the computer's volume settings by clicking on the "VOL+" icon at the bottom right corner of the main Media Center screen to make sure the volume is not turned off or down too low.

You may need to reconfigure your speakers if you're having volume or sound issues.
Scroll down to "Tasks" in the Media Center home screen and select "Settings."

Click on "General" and select "Windows Media Center Setup."
Click on "Set Up Your Speakers."

Follow the on-screen prompts to reconfigure your speakers.

Sony ICD-U60 - Will not play back on PC


On the internet, navigate to THIS PAGE, then select your operating system, where it says, "Select an operating system to see files:" in the center of the lower portion of the page (list of compatible systems shown below also), by selecting from the pull-down menu; then click on the appropriate link in the 'Download' column on the far right; then click the 'Download Now' icon with the earth and a green arrow pointing down on the far right, saving it to your desktop (or any location you prefer). Once the file downloads, double-click on the executable file you just downloaded, and follow the instructions. The result will be that your computer will now recognize and correctly deal with files created by your recorder.

I recently installed the Real Alternative software to open AVI files, 'cause in my WM player I could only hear the sound, and I couldn't see the video, it's not a problem with all my AVI files, just a few...


Hi

There's no problem with the operating system.And please do not reinstall windows again.Its a known issue only for some types of videos even if its in the same format for example- 2 different files in AVI format ones working but the others not.This happens because some type of videos are only supported by 3rd party codecs which is not made by microsoft as windows media player is product of microsoft. Now you might also notice that the same video might be working in your friends computer or a different computer absolutely fine.Its just you would have to wait until it will download the update it self.
SOLUTION:-
Look m not a big fan of microsoft either.So do not depend on Windows media player.Simply download VLC PLAYER which is the best.Its small, plays all kinds of videos in all formats.The following is the link for the setup file of VLC PLAYER-:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/vlc/files/1.1.5/win32/vlc-1.1.5-win32.exe/download

Now njoy watching all the videos with high def and better sound than Windows media player

Hope this fixes the problem,If it doesn't please reply



Thanks & Regards

Update new window xp sp3 but not remove old files


Hi there.
When you install service pack 3 the computer makes a back up of service pack 2 just in case you have to uninstall service 3 and go back to service pack 2. The files will not be deleted for this reason so there is nothing to worry about because its standard Microsoft practice.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Hi there
Is this problem with windows media player only or with rest players also.
You try to repair your media player using your XP installation CD and then install a good codec pack such as XP codec pack or K-Lite codec pack.These are available for free .
Hope this works for you.

Waiting for your thanks.
