windows media player + codecs!

  herc182 13:10 13 Apr 2004


I recently tried playing a video file on my computer and received an error message saying somthing about a missing codec file.
I have no further information at the mo as i dont have the offending computer in front of me! just seeing if anyone knows what the problem could be (if it is common i mean!).

Very annoying!!

Are all the codecs enabled? (Tools>Options>File Types).

If not you may need to download what you require from View>Plug-ins>Downloads.

Have you enabled all the codecs from Tools>Options>File Types?
