.wmv File Won't Play On Windows 8 Media Player 12

Apr 18, 2013

I have .wmv files that play perfectly fine on Windows 7 Windows Media Player 12. However, I have tried them on two different computers that are Windows 8. They simply won't play. The error I keep receiving is: "can't play because the items file format isn't supported. Check the store to see if this is available there."

At first I thought it was missing a codec pack, but I tried download the Windows 8 codec and that didn't work.

I do not understand how the .wmv files play on Windows 7 Media Player 12 and now on Windows 8 Media Player. It is just one .wmv file either. These .wmv files need to be available for Windows 8 users.

Again, multiple .wmv files play on Windows 7, but not on two different Windows 8 computers.

Audio :: How To Play MKV Video Files - Windows Media Player Shark007 Codecs

Sep 15, 2014

I just installed the Shark007 Codecs and reboot the PC. Because, I need to play.MKV video files. I didn't change that plugin settings. Now when I play the AVI video files which has dual audio (two languages), now Windows Media player automatically playing both audio sounds.

When I search on the internet, I found that setting Haali as the AVI splitter in the AVI tab will fix it. Unfortunately, in my situation, it didn't work. After I choose Haali splitter, it shows "Windows media player encountered a problem while playing the file" error.

So how do I disable 2nd audio auto playback?

Apps / Software :: How To Remove File Associations For Windows Media Player

Oct 24, 2013

I just don't want to use Windows Media player. It is not even there on my pc I guess.

Still, several of my file associations are showing windows media player as associated with it.

When I go to control panel - default program, and untick associations for wmp, then don't stick. unticking them doesn't work, they reappear the next time.

I also have foobar2000, winamp, vlcplayer installed, I have put default for these programs.

However, all the extensions associated with wmp do not appear in the list of extension for these three programs, so I am not able to set them.

I just don't want to use wmp. I want those extensions to remain unassociated with any program, so that when and if I ever player any file with that extension, windows should ask me how to open that, and then I can select .

How to remove wmp associations from all extensions listed there, even without associating it with another program.

Network / Sharing :: Streaming Media Content To Xbox 360 Via Windows Media Player

Mar 2, 2012

So for some background I basically stream music, pictures and video content from my computer to an Xbox 360 in the lounge room for my family to enjoy. This has worked for quite a long time with Windows 7.

I installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview today and got settled in with it and indexed my libraries with Windows Media player so this could resume. But to my dismay this doesn't seem to work in Windows 8.

I have each folder and hard drive shared on windows for network use, I have a little experience from LANs in this area. I have enabled all streaming options in WMP that I know of and the entirety of my library has been fully indexed. This is WMP 12 and everything I possibly know of is up to date.

I haven't got the Homegroup feature active as I never had to use this before.

The only other thing I have noticed that has changed is this. A little green icon that in windows 7 would appear on top of the xboxs, I'm assuming this means something.

On the Xbox end it used to display the Libraries such as 'Recorded TV', 'Music', 'TV Shows', 'Movies' and other things but now when I try to access video content it gives me a folder called 'Videos' which contains nothing.

Windows 8 Kiosk - Tap To Play Media Application

May 15, 2014

I have a Windows 8 Kiosk running and would like to have a video playing on it all the time. However, I want someone to be able to tap the screen to play it. The video ends and has to be tapped to be played again. And the screen is locked on this video only, so a client couldn't access any other part of the computer.

Is that something that I should be looking into some sort of media playing OS or is there any application that could do this task?

Can't RIP CD To Disc With Windows Media Player

Feb 3, 2014

I am trying to copy a CD to disc using Media Player. When I try to set the destination location by clicking CHANGE in Rip settings/More options/Rip music to this location, nothing happens. I can't set a location. When I click the Rip CD button, I get the message "Windows Media Player cannot find the file. If you are trying to play, burn, or sync an item that is in your library, the item might point to a file that has been moved, renamed, or deleted."

The Media Player sees the CD and can play the tracks from the CD, so it's not that it can't find the CD.

Apps / Software :: What Media Player Should To Use With Windows 8

Jun 10, 2013

What media player can I use on Windows 8, either a freebie or one that I pay for. I used to use Windows Media Player 11 for XP on my desktop (which is now no longer available). I have got my music on my desktop and just want to manage my own music and listen to CD's on my laptop (which has a cd drive). I don't know whether I can use a freebie program or which media player is the most suited.

Windows Media Player Not Working After 8.1 Upgrade

Oct 22, 2013

I recently upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1. After the update Windows Media Player doesn't recognize any of my libraries even though the correct folders are selected to be included.

I already tried to disable the windows media features in the control panel, reboot and then re-enable but that had no effect.

Incidentally, if I manually start playback of a song from a folder windows media player does work so the issue is just that it won't recognize my libraries.

Windows Media Player 12 - Video Lagging As HD

Dec 27, 2013

I am having problems with my Windows Media Player 12 on my Windows 8.1 Enterprise PC, when I publish a video from my JVC Everio HD Camcorder (Model NO.: GZ-HM300SEK).

Every time I click to play a video and when I skip the video along.. the image freezes for 2 seconds and it continues with a stutter. I am guessing that the PC doesn't handle a bit of HD specs (if I am right).

Windows Media Player Won't Open - Playing MP3 Files

Feb 6, 2013

Windows Media Player won't open. I noticed this after I used Revo Uninstaller to uninstall AVG 2012 so I could install AVG 2013. There was a huge amount of things to be uninstalled and I selected and deleted all of them. Since then I've had a similar message open with Windows Live Mail also, but I went to Programs and Features and did the right click for 'uninstall' on Windows Live Essentials 2012 and then chose "Repair". This seems to have worked.

The message that appears when I try to play an mp3 file by right clicking on it and then choosing "Play with Windows Media Player" (because the program won't open at all) has Windows Installer as a heading and says: "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable. Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'Shredder64.msi' in the box below."

I don't know what a program or feature titled "Shredder" has to do with Windows Media Player, but that is what it says. When I click on the 'Cancel' button inside this message box another box opens with the same heading (Windows Installer) and the message says: "The path 'C:UsersAdministratorAppDataLocalDownloaded Installations{45DE3BB5-15C7-489B-8F80-82349413953E}Shredder64.msi' cannot be found. Verify that you have access to this location and try again, or try to find the installation package 'Shreder64.msi' in a folder from which you can install the product Shredder." Then there is just the OK button.

I have tried to open WMP from the taskbar, the Program Files (x86) file, the windows explorer (File Explorer) to the "Start Menu"/"Programs" file, and also from the Start Screen and the Start Screen All Apps page. It just won't open.

Is there a way to reinstall it without a windows refresh? Or is there a fix?

Compressing Audio When Synching In Windows Media Player

Jan 26, 2014

I've got a ton of MP3s that I want to export to a USB stick. For the life of me, I can't find a place in Windows Media Player to compress the audio when synching. iTunes has that feature and it's super convenient, but

1) I can't use the USB stick in iTunes, and
2) I can't find the compress feature in WMP, so I'm stuck.
