DirectShow player

  Quilljar 15:31 10 Feb 2006

I have Windows Media Player 10 and yet I keep getting the message 'Cannot create DirectShow Player', every time I want to view a video on the internet. Can anyone help me to find what I need to download? Google has not helped me enough so far.

XP I presume? (no WMP10 for any other).

One solution suggested is to remove WMP completely (using add/remove programs and then windows components) and reinstall it.

Also, try




and see what happens.
