My sound is real funny like chipmunk sounds


If the pitch of the sound being played by your computer speakers has changed dramatically or songs and videos are playing faster or slower than they typically should be, the problem is with the sound speed on your computer. This could mean a hardware issue with your speakers or sound card or a software issue with the program that you're using to play a digital media file.

Double-check your speaker connections. If one of the audio cables that runs off of your speakers isn't plugged correctly into your computer, this could cause the audio coming from them to speed up or slow down. Make sure all cables are properly connected to their proper inputs and try to play your audio again. Update the driver for your computer's sound card. Go to the website of the company that made your sound card and look for your unit's product page. Under the "Support" section, click on the download link for the latest device driver. Once the file is on your computer, double-click on it to install it. Then restart your computer and try to play your audio again. Make sure you haven't accidentally sped up or slowed down the media file you are trying to play. Many digital media programs like iTunes or Windows Media Player have features that allow you to play a song or video in slow or fast motion. If this becomes accidentally selected, the audio will also be in slow or fast motion. Click "Stop" to stop your media file from playing and then click "Play" again to allow it to play normally. Restart your computer. This will free up system memory when your computer restarts. If your sound was playing too slow or too fast due to an error with not having enough memory to play properly, that error will now be fixed and your sound should return to normal speed. Hope this helps.

How to Watch WMV on MAC Easily


<p><span>WMV, Windows Media Video, is a compressed video file format for several proprietary codecs developed by Microsoft. As we know that there are so many videos with wmv formats, sometimes you download them and then open them , but all you get is a lot of crazy code. Are you looking for an easy to watch wmv videos, especially as a mac user ? This article is about how to play WMV files on Mac so that you can watch WMV on a Mac computer, introduces three most popular ways to play WMV videos and some WMV conversion apps.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Tips: If you want to convert WMV videos, a video converter is needed here. <a href="http://www.macvideoconverter.org/">video converter mac</A> can converts video files such as MPEG1, MPEG2, MP4, 3GP, 3G2, AVI, Mpeg, HD video formats including MKV, TOD, MOD, TS, TP and TRP. and output video formats including MOV, FLV, MP4, AVI, and MPG.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>1. Watch WMV on Mac with VLC Media Player</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>VLC is a media player like QuickTime and Windows Media Player. Many view VLC is a good alternative to the these traditional media players because VLC is available for many different operating systems and is an open source software project that is supported by many dedicated programmers across the world.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Until recently, only experimental versions of VLC for Mac OS X could play WMV videos, but no longer. VLC for Mac OS X now supports WMV video. You can download VLC from the VLC media player for Mac OS X download page.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>There are three types of downloads on this page: "Universal Binary", "Intel Package", and "PowerPC Package". The Universal Binary should work on any Mac, the Intel Package is meant for newer Intel-powered Macs, and the PowerPC Package is meant for older Macs that use the PowerPC processor. If you are unsure of whether you've got an Intel Mac or a PowerPC Mac, use the Universal Binary Package.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Once downloaded, double click on the dmg file, wait for a Finder window to open, and then drag the VLC icon to your "Applications" folder. In addition, VLC media Player supports audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>2. Watch WMV on Mac with Windows Media Player</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>Windows Media Player is available for Apple Macintosh computers. Microsoft no longer maintains or supports their WMP for Mac software, but they still provide it for you to download. You can download the software at Microsoft's website.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>When you go to the Windows Media Player 9 for Mac download page, you'll be given a choice between a .bin file and a .hqx file. If you have an older Mac, you should download the .hqx file. If you don't, then it doesn't really matter. Just make sure you get the English version.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>3. Watch WMV on Mac with Flip 4 Mac</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>As mentioned in the above that Microsoft won't upgrade windows media player 9, Microsoft did offer an alternative for Mac users: Windows Media Components for QuickTime Flip4Mac, which is developed by Telestream. With this QuickTime component, you can play WMV and WMA files directly in QuickTime Player and watch streamed WMV videos.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>If you just want to play WMV files on Mac, you can choose one of the above ways to do it. We recommend VLC player considering its powerful functions. But for converting WMV videos, this video converter mac will be a good choice, it is such an powerful software that it can act as <a href="http://www.macvideoconverter.org/guide/flv-converter-for-mac.html">flv converter for mac</A>, mp3 converter mac, <a href="http://www.macvideoconverter.org/guide/avi-converter-mac.html">avi converter mac</A>, mp4 converter mac, Mac MKV Converter, etc.</SPAN><span></SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN>

I cant load moovies to my m.p.3


Check the specification of your MP3 playerto determine the type of video file format it uses. Most common video files that MP3 playersuse are, AVI and WMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX. If your player cannot play a video then itis an incompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video fileto a format that your MP3 player uses.

Dvds make grinding noises and skip a lot on my dell 4550


Sounds like the dvd rom is bad and needs to be replaced. I believe its not holding the disc in properly and the disc is spinning at a different angle and touching the sides or top

No sound when playing dvds


This is very likely a codec problem. A codec is a software component used with video and audio players that translates the electronic media file into something that can be displayed. Most of the time, the video codec will be out of date and you'll hear the audio but not see any video. You've got the reverse problem, obviously.

Unfortunately, Microsoft does not make this easy. Even the latest download of codecs from Microsoft doesn't necessarily update the Windows Media Player to play any DVD. You will need to do a codec search and download the latest. Last time I checked, 'download.com' had them available (this is CNet's download website). Good luck!

How can i play AVI files on my media center/player on vista


Hi,
Windows Vista Media Center won’t play Xvid and Avi files, even if Windows Media Player will play these files. If you want to add support for third party codecs including Xvid and Avi files in Vista Media Center then you need to install the media control plugin for Windows Vista Media Center.
To install the Codec please click on the below link or copy the URL and paste it in your web browser..
http://damienbt.free.fr/index.php#download
This plugin allows Windows Vista Media Center to utilize te FFDShow decoder, which needs to be installed seperately ((FFDShow rev 1108 recommended: download the last version from http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow-tryout)) FFDShow adds support to Vista for MPEG-4 video formats like DivX, Xvid, H.264 and also alllows MP3, AAC, Dolby AC3, and OGG Vorbis audio files to be played back.
have any other queries, please let me know..
Thank you.....
