No sound with WD mini media player

Q: No sound with WD mini media player

I have just purchased a WD mini media player to play my movies on my HD TV.
I have a WD My Book 2T Hard drive and all my movies are AVI.
After setting it all up i have picture but no sound on any movie.
What am i doing wrong or what can i do to fix the problem?

A: No sound with WD mini media player

There are two WD's the WDTV and the WDTV Live. The Live version of the box can convert DTS sound on the fly but since your using avi that shouldn't be the problem. You have two ways to get the video and sound to your set. One is the HDMI and you need to have the high speed cord to get the best quality (10,000gb/s I believe). The others are Composite (yellow) and component (red/green/blue) for video and then you have to use the (Red/White) audio to get the sound into your TV. There is another option and thats HDMI to DVI and since DVI is just video (like a monitor) you have to use the (Red/White) stereo connectors to get audio to the tv.

I have tried everything to get Windows Media Player 9 to work in Mini Player mode, but to no avail. I have followed the Help instructions, i.e:

To use the new Mini-Player

1. Right-click an empty area of the Windows taskbar (such as below the system clock), point to Toolbars, and then select Windows Media Player. This step enables the feature and must only be performed once. The Player will dock the mini-Player in your Windows taskbar whenever you minimize it.

2. Minimize the Player to view the Mini-Player.

This does not work. I have Windows XP Pro SP1, and Windows Media Player Can anyone help ?

Your missing the codec needed to play the videos. The most common video codec missing from WMP are the mp4 and xvid (the free open source version of divx) codecs.

Do you know what codecs the videos use? If not there are a number of programs on the internet to tell you have codecs a video is using.

Whenever I minimize WMP10 to the toolbar mode, I am unable to use playback buttons (play, stop, previous track, next track). They are "grayed" out, and I am unable to use them. Also, the icon in the upper right-hand corner for bringing up a mini-video window (video and visualization window) does not work. I consulted the WMP help file and website, but was unable to find any answers. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

recently i have reformatted my hard drive with windows XP professional service pack 2. I have spent the last week sorting stuff out moving stuff around installing programs and in this happening i accidentally deleted the folder in C:/Program Files called windows media player. So i went to the Microsoft website downloaded windows media player 11.

Unfortunately i have noticed a number of missing things.
1. None of the shortcut icons, quick launch icons and start menu icons of windows media player are there after installation

2. I cannot view any online content which requires windows media player

3. the windows media player "mini player" (the plug-in where you can minimize windows media player and control it from the task bar) eg. playing, stopping, fast forward and rewind options.

I have tried to reinstall the program 3 times now, searched everywhere on the internet for a solution including all the Microsoft online help files, Rebooted several times and looked in remote assistance. Could anyone please help me find a fix for this or tell me what the problem is? Thx timmy

First, check that your speakers are correctly plugged into the back of your computer and that the power is connected to them, then check to see that your drivers are still installed by going into control panel > Sounds and multimedia, tell me what happens,.

Knew this one would come up here soon.

Go to the control panel then Hardware and Sound then to Manage audio devices then right click and choose speaker properties then go to the advanced tab. Choose the "16 bit 48000 hz (DVD Quality)" This will get the sound working in your Windows Media player.

With the new Win build the default setting has changed so DVD's won't play sound in WMP unless you do this first.

I've tried to straighten this out before and have been trying different players. I can't seem to get ONE player to work with everything, even when set as default for them.

I have WIN 98 SE (with Pentium Celeron processor, I thought this might be a problem because the newest WMP (9) says it should have a Pentium 2 or higher)

But, I've tried WMP 8 and the same thing happens.

I was on a website that said the newest version of WMP or RP is required, so downloaed WMP 9 from a link on that site.

Before this I have tried other players and versions. I dl Real Player (7, not the newest, the one that was recommeded for what I have) and I have (and have had in the past WinAmp, and various verisions of it.

Last night I got it so I have Real Player, which plays sound files from my computer, and WinAmp which played CDs. I couldn't get one to work for both. No matter how I set it.

I have tried WMP, older versions of it, and have the same problem as with the new (9) I just dl now.

On some of the sites I tried the picture would come on, but no sound. And on some NOTHING. It loads and buffers and says it's playing but nothing is there.

Please post any progress you make, I'm thinking that the issues may be related and I may have to learn about Codecs or try to revert to version 10, although for Mono sound issues, others have reported that the downgrade did not help, even though originally Mono sound worked in WMP 10.

My media player uses a dvi to hdmi cable. The audio options available to me are optical, coaxial or AV cables.

My LCD tv won't play sounds when I plug in the DVI-HDMI cable and the AV red and white cables. And it doesn't have any such input for optical or coaxial.

There is also s-video and component cable outputs on my media player which I believe don't carry sound either.

Otherwise I think I am going to need to buy a stereo/hifi system with RCA, optical or coaxial audio in to get the audio to work with HD? Is that about right?

In Control Panel, open the Multimedia icon /folder, what is listed for Preferred Devices in both areas? They normally match the Sound card....but anything can be set up.... then, you would use that program or device to play media files.....
Does the volume speaker icon show on taskbar, lower right, of desktop? Does any sound at all, like startup sound at boot, work? Sounds like either all the sound driver you got installed did not install, or you had the default taken over by another player, Real Player, or some program....
How about the CD audio cable that may go to the sound card- did you knock that loose, or take it off? Some modems and sound cards, at least the older ones, are combo cards...they are trickier to set up, doubt you have one, just a thought.

So I've had this problem for a long time and it's just annoying, I'm running on a Dell XPS 15 on a Windows 7 64 bit OS. Before updating my sound driver (HD Realtek audio), I had to turn off audio enhancements to get any sound from VLC or said media player, however there is a huge drop in sound quality, so I kind of neglected it and went on with having poor sound quality. Well I just now updated my driver and though I get sound through websites and sound from my games (Diablo 3, CS:GO, etc.) I still don't receive sound from VLC, ITunes or any other media player. I'm not sure what to do because the drop in sound quality has started to annoy me so I don't want to turn off the audio enhancements.

Go to control panel>Hardware and sound>Adjust system volume. Then open up itunes and or whatever else will not work, and make sure you see it under the system volume tab as raised. Also check any other Ex: Applications.
Now if that is fine, Go back to hardware and sound but instead click manage audio devices check and just to make sure that the speakers are working fine.
Next for VLC try this All programs > VideoLAN > Reset VLC media player preferences and cache files to reset settings, see if this fixes VLC's no sound.
For windows media player try this Start>Run>msdt.exe -id WindowsMediaPlayerConfigurationDiagnostic

I have seen a lot of advice about this problem and nothing has fixed my problem. I uninstalled Windows Media Player 11 and reinstalled. I have searched for specific a Nero 9 dll which was thought to be part of the problem and I do not have it. I uncheced all of the video associations from WMP11 and installed the free Media Player Classic, thinking I would just give up on WMP11 for a while and still, when I go to a webpage and click on a wmv video, Media Player 11 opens up again and loads the file and plays the audio but not the video! Now I am trying to figure out how to make Media Player Classic the default player for all things video and to open automatically and do its thing.
If I uninstall WMP11 that will only put WMP10 back in business and I suspect it will still open and attempt to play a wmv file and fail.
I have XP Pro with SP3. This problem with WMP11 only happened recently and I can't think of any possible reason for it.

Hi, this question may have been asked previously, but I'm experiencing trouble getting my HTPC Win 7 64-bit box to output to Master Audio or even 5.1 when playing music - here is the gear I'm working with:
1. ASUS P7H55-M Pro Motherboard
2. 8 GB RAM
3. Denon AVR-591
4. Windows Media Center with ripped albums and movies
Here's the weird thing: when I play any ripped movie through Windows Media Center that offers 5.1, the system performs flawlessly.  However, music only will pump out of the front speakers and not the center channel.
When I go to configure the sound and select the DENON AVAMP, I can customize the sound by selecting (among others) STEREO or 5.1 SURROUND.  For SURROUND, I am given two options (side and rear), neither of which work.  I can hear the rear speakers when press TEST.  However, if I set the system up with plain STEREO, all speakers output and movies still produce separation.   I can also achieve the same effect by choosing 5 CHANNEL STEREO from the Denon.  Either way, it seems to make no difference what speakers I set up on the HTPC, as the Denon produces whatever it wants.
Any ideas as to solving this dilemma?

For some reason, I am getting no sound when I play cds in Windows Media Player. Old cds that I have ripped to my computer play okay, so it's not as if the volume is on mute. However, when I rip new cds to my computer, there is no sound during playback.

I tried to use the Windows help section, but I'm having difficulty following them. For instance, how do I access the "audio tab in the CD/DVD Drive Properties dialog box"? I have a feeling the problem has to do with analog/digital audio settings, but I can't remember how to access them. I'm sure I had to click on "device manager" at some point, but I can't remember where.

Can anyone help me with my lack of volume?


A:No Sound In Windows Media Player

To access analog/digital settings (not sure if this is what you need but I'm throwing it for you anyway)

If you have a sound icon next to your clock, click the icon and open Play Control. The first panel, at least on mine, is Play Control. Click the advanced tab there, in the box that comes up check 1 Digital Output Only. If it's checked, uncheck it. Put in a cd, see if you hear anything.

If Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices/Volume Tab. Click Advanced to open Play Control, follow the above procedure.

When Play Control opens, if you don't see the Play Control panel, click on Options/Properties. Check the box next to play control, then OK.

I am having problems with Windows Media player 9 on windows xp pro. It plays the video of any file you would like to play but the sound does not work. The player attempts to download a codec but microsoft says that the codec is not avaible. These files work perfectly on every other player. I installed ffshow codec pack which was recommended by an anime site. Before my problems, it worked perfectly. I even tried installing windows media player 10 beta. I get the same problem. I went to uninstall it but the player wont unistall which is another problem in and of itself. I was woundering if it could have been lame codec so i tried installing that. There was no effect. Then I tried uninstalling it, to no avail. Btw, the problem started because of me uninstalling nimo codec pack in the first place. Nimo is said to be a bad codec pack because it intereferes with adobe photoshop. Please help me!

Hi doj,

I have had this problem for some time now and have finally found a cure (at least it works for me).

Go to VIEW in Media Player.

Select Enhancements and Graphic Equaliser.

Keep the same relative levels if you are happy with the mix, but reduce all levels and the distortion will go away.

For some reason Microsoft seem to have set the audio levels in XP to the point where clipping occurs at modest equaliser levels.

Hope this fixes it for you as it fixed it for me.

There is no sound when i play anything on windows media player. It is not the sound card or anything like that because the sound on everything else works.
Also i noticed everytime i open something Windows media player says "downloading codec"...or codec sever" or something like that?

does anyone know whats going on here?

A:no sound on windows media player...

First off, WMP has a volume control, make sure it's turned up.

If the sound issue you are trying to troubleshoot has to do with the file that is downloading codecs, then it is possible it is encoded in a format WMP can't read.

For lack of better term, codecs are like compression utilities for media - a movie can be compressed using a particular codec and that codec will be needed to play the file/movie (not unlike winzip: you compress with winzip but also need a winzip utility to extract files back out).

WMP is looking for the appropriate codec to play the file.

Hope this helps,

That is because windows media player dont have the codecs for playing the audio in your video files.

Hello everybody, I have been having trouble with WMP since Monday. WMP was playing music as normal until I decided to install Backup in Systems Tools. After installation I tried WMP and it would play MP3 files but not my Midi Files. I checked all the settings and they were all OK so I uninstalled Backup thinking that had caused the problem and then found that I had no sound at all on WMP. Since then I have Reinstalled Win 98se over the top of the one that was in to try to repair it and WMP played the MP3 files OK. The following day after booting up it was back to square one and no sound again. I have uninstalled and reinstalled WMP9 twice but still cannot get any sound. Once again I have checked all my settings and drivers and they are all set Ok. Has anyone got any idea how I can get out of this mess.?? Ted.

I have just purchased a Dell Inspiron 6400 with Vista Premium and spent the first two days extremely frustrated due to the sound skipping towards the end of every track I listed to.

Double click on "Speaker/Headphones" to open a configuration menu.

Whenever I attempt to use Windows Media Player 10, I can see a picture but can't hear any sound. My speakers are still working as I've checked various sites and viewed clips and could hear sound with no problem. I am using Windows XP. How can I fix this? Thanks for any help!

This used to work, now it doesn't and I can't trace what I've done lately to figure out why. Sound works fine, but I like to control volume from user apps like Windows Media player. In other apps it still works, but for some Reason in Media Player it doesn't work at all. I can't even mute now. I have version 10. Should I try a reinstall? I'd rather not upgrade to 11 just yet until they work out the bugs.

A:Media player sound control not working

Figured it out. I had another ap running that was using the sound.
