WMP 11 won't play .wmv!?

  targaid 11:48 26 Mar 2008

I've recently had Media Player 11 refuse to play standard .wmv files and claim I don't have the correct codec. I've looked online for updated codecs manually and also have 'automatically update codecs' enabled in options but I can't find anything to get them to play. I have no such troubles with RealPlayer,indicating the codecs are there or just not right for Media Player, so what's happening? After all, this is Microshaft's player & their own standard video format!

The K-lite codec pack should help:

It gives all the codecs you should ever need, for now anyway!

Like Jak_1 I have that codec pack installed,WMP 11 plays .wmv and most other formats now as a result.
