Win Media Player...codecs

  Baslla321 18:22 31 Jul 2005

I have WMP Ver 10 which used to play all sorts of videos. Now it says that codecs to play the particular video was not found. I have been to the WMP site but I dont know which is which for the player.Ver 10 was supposed to have all the necessary codecs. Any help appreciated.

Have you tried the update option in the "Help" toolbar option?

I also have problems like that with streaming audio/video from teh likes of "Yahoo Launch". I think it is when the media file(s) are currupt in some sort of way.

Don't worry about it.

I had the same problem, and despite a lot of suggestions on this site I was unable to play DVD/Video. I eventually bought Power DVD SE from Cyberlinks. Now everything works fine.

The WMP9 codecs pack can be used equally successfully with WMP10 - also the standard K-Lite audio/visual pack from:

delivers virtually everything ever required.

If you have the full Nero pack don't forget ShowTime...:-)

I have the WMP9 codecs pack and also the K-lite full pack. I still cant see videos from Launch/Yahoo as they say I do not have the required codec. I am also told that I cant view the video as it is not available in my region, which is the EU. All was normal up to a week or so, so I just dont get it. I will have to ignore it. Thanks to all.
