Hi, i've been searching this forum for quite awhile and can't find any answers and was hoping someone can help me. Like the title says, when i download any .wmv file, i cant play it. I get this error, "Windows Media Player cannon play the file. The player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file." But when i stream the video to watch it, it plays fine. I formated my computer twice and reinstalled windows xp with sp2 and windows media player 10. Please, any advice will help.

bought a brand new emachine computer last week with XP operating system.
this morning I downloaded two mp3 songs but when i play them both there is no sound at all...they are playing but no sound. tried in Winamp and MS media player.
The rest of the computer sounds work and the mp3's that came with the system work too(ready loaded)...so there's nothing wrong with the speakers.
the mp3's that don't have sound have a bitrate of 32kbps....the ready-loaded mp3's that do have sound have a bitrate of 64kbps and 144kbps.
maybe the download bitrate is the problem....
another thing...the troubled mp3 files are 3.5 MB and 5.1 MB in size.....you would think both songs would have a play time of approx 4 or 5 minutes....but it's showing 16 minutes and 21 minutes...something is wrong..any ideas!!!
 

A:computer won't play downloaded mp3's

Maybe the downloaded mp3 files are corrupted in some way. Try downloading them again and see what happens. Regards Howard :grinthumb

This is not a problem with the OS. It's a problem with movies I have downloaded, some of which  won't play, or play without sound. When I try to play them, there's a problem. Either it plays, but without sound, or I get a popup that says I need to get some software to make it work. Many others have worked beautifully. The problem ones are formats using .avi, .flv, and sometimes mp4 extensions, all of which are quite standard. But the .avi ones won't play, even in Windows Media Player (yes, I checked that it will play .avi files). So how can an .avi file NOT play? Unless somebody tampered with the coding of the extension somehow. I'm no expert on such things. Similar things have been done to SOME of the .flv and mp4 movies, too. They all have to have additional software. But none of it appears to be offered at the DivX site. I use mostly DivX and WMP for playing videos. My system is W7. Most of the time, just to GET the downloads, I had to jockey around at the sites - they didn't give the download sites in a truly straightforward manner. Some asked me to "upgrade" Flash, and I rejected that until I went to the Flash site and found my software was entirely up to date. So it seemed obvious the "update" I was being offered was - not lovely. Though the site that gives the list of sites offering a particular movie is not Grade A, its WOT rating is perfect. I DO get what they offer, but it's the sites they direct me to, the ones that have the movies tha... Read more

It's not that I get an error when I open the video, it's just that it doesn't run. Like I open it and the opening scene shows up but the video doesn't run. I can view the rest of the video only by grabbing the scroll bar with my mouse and just clicking it further along the line to progress the video. And even then it is just still images.

A:Downloaded movies will not play

Have you tried playing the file in an another media player? Real Player, etc.

If the file is good, not corrupted, then you probably need to download and install the correct codecs.

Try: http://www.codec-download.com/

When the card first arrived i was playing all the games with no problems,(Company of heroes, Oblivion, and bioshock).

Now that i updated the drivers the game keeps crashing!!

Did you perhaps download beta drivers?

To fix the problem, Right-click 'My Computer">>properties>> go into the Device Manager, find your card under 'Display Adapters', Right-click>>properties, choose the 'Drivers' tab and click 'Roll back driver.' Should fix a driver-related issue.

Thank you very much.

In case it's really the sampling rate what hinders the process, simply convert one of the non working wavs to the same rate of the working ones. Winamp does that quite easily via the Wav out-plugin

Hey all,

My dad recently asked me to snatch some videos off of You Tube. They're tributes to fallen firefighters that he was trying to get to take and show around work meetings and what not. I managed to download them with a firefox plug-in (DownloadHelper I believe its called), then I used the Pazera converter to convert them from .flv to .avi as I thought .avi would work in pretty much any media player.

I e-mailed him the videos and he tells me the audio works fine on Windows Media Player, but the associated videos aren't playing (it's instead showing the default kaleidescope swirls). Any idea what went wrong or how I can do this differently so that he can play them on a regular Windows machine at home or work without him having to download anything extra?

Thanks so much for your time.

A:Downloaded .avi files wont play correctly

You are missing a codec that is needed to play the video properly. It should allow you to choose which codec to use.


Quote:




Supported video codecs: XviD, DivX 3, H.264, WMV, MPEG4-FFmpeg, S-Mpeg 4 v. 2, Motion JPEG (MJPEG).




My guess is that to play that video you will either need DivX or XviD...alternatively you could convert them again and put them in WMV format and it would probably work automatically.

I have downloaded a .avi video file.
I cant play the video file using many of the media players ( The KMPlayer, K-lite codec , windows media , vlc )

The file extension is changed to .001 for the first file and .002 for the sencond file....etc instead of .avi as mention in the website.

Thank for your consideration.
 

A:Cant play the downloaded video file ( unknown format )?

The numbered extensions make it sound like one large avi file was split into smaller files for downloading purposes. You will need a file joiner utility program to combine them into a single file before you can play it. There are various free and non-free joiner programs that can be downloaded from the Internet. I have not used them often enough to offer any specific recommendations.

I ran AVG, malware bytes anti-malware,adwcleaner, and hitman.
 
I then tried to download a different cdburner. AVG caught something, I ran adwcleaner, and when I restarted, the internet didn't work. So I couldn't use hitman and malwarebytes.  It seemed like I was in as a different use with more permissions. It took a long time to reboot. Fortunately,  I was able to use hitmans reset point to get internet function back. I also uninstalled a lot of these programs, since more than antivirus can cause problems
 
I also ran Zemana anti malware and reset chrome.So that's about what happened.
 
Mostly it seems ok, but I wanted to see if I was clean. I haven't used the machine much, though, it was late last night when I did a lot of this.

I have noticed a number of flash videos on youtube that, when downloaded and played from cache, start and immediately stop.

I have also noticed that if you start the video at some points maybe 60 percent through, you can start and play part of the video. This strikes me as very odd. The video won't play but some parts of it will play.

An example is at

GSpot tells me it is an ordinary .flv file, not flash 4, flv4.

The last month when I try to download music I get a error message: "An eror occurred while trying to license your Musicmatch download. The Musicmatch License Server cannot process the request." I can play music in my library from CDs that I have copied. When I try to play music that I downloaded (and was able to play successfully before) it plays for 28 seconds then I get "error c00d271d". I have had Norton try to help me bhinking it was a problem with my internet security and antivisus but apparently it is not. SI don't think it's a problem with Musicmatch because we have it on our laptop and there is no problem. When I try to play the downloads on Window Media Player 10 I get an orange "!" and it won't play at all. I have SP1 and haven't added any new programs. I've gone in and tried to adjust various settings (I've probably messed some other things up.)

A:cannot play downloaded music on musicmatch or windows media player

Illegally downloaded music will not recieve support here.

If you disagree with my judgement you may send me a pm and we can discuss it from there.

Hello,

When I am trying to play a downloaded torrent movie, the windows media player is opening and then only the sound comes with a green square. No pictures appear in the square. Just a plain green square. Under properties for the file it says, "Video Clip".

I updated the graphics drivers and also have the latest java updates. The funniest part is that in the same course of download there are other files which are playing perfectly. It's just a couple of them that are not playing.

Request you to please let me know how to overcome this trouble.

Regards.

Some videos made using an online system, screencasts, now downloaded will not show the video component when played on the computer.  Windows Media Player 12 had played them just fine when they were online, but now using Windows Media Player 12 with the same video downloaded, only the Media Player's visualizations show but not the recorded video portion.  Why or what can I do?
 
 
Windows Vista
Windows Media Player 12
Downloaded videos as MP4 (actually onto external portable hard disk).

A:downloaded video files not play the video portion (mp4)

Download CCCP Codec Pack. After install make sure you reset user settings. Reboot and you should be able to play MP4's using the Classic Media Player included in the Codec Pack. This codec pack will let you play just about any media file. Don't worry about the Russian Looking page. The site is legit.
 
Go to Start -> Programs -> Combined Community Codec Pack and open the Settings manager.
Press "Next" to get to the second page.
Under "Special Settings", check "Reset All Settings".
Press Apply.
Select Yes to the question, and follow through the Settings until Apply is hit again.

Hey there.

So I'm having a problem playing .wmv files on my system (it's not just WMP). Everytime I play a file with a .wmv extension, the file will play, with proper audio and everything, but the colour will be messed up, almost as if the player (could be WMP, Realplayer, Quicktime etc...) is playing in negative mode. I can't fix it even with codecs. I've downloaded numerous codec packs, codecs from Microsoft, third parties, everywhere, and I can't seem to fix it. This only happens with wmv files, mpg, avi, mpeg etc...all play perfectly.

Running XP Pro

Thanks in advance

Hi,

I got my sis an advent 7211 laptop for Christmas and I have been setting it up for her ...it has a x200 ati integrated gpu but that's all she'll need as she mostly does work and multimedia stuff on it.

It's running Vista home premium and has only the original codec and ffdshow installed on it.

Anyway the problem is it will play files in WMP11 fine but when I try to play them in windows media center I get black dots all over any white parts of the video.

Anyone got a clue thanks?

I know she could just play the files in wmp11 but she loves the media center and would just like to solve it.

For some odd reason the Play All (Play Selection) doesn't work in the Music Tasks in My Music anymore. The other two (Shop and Copy to CD) work fine though. I can't recall installing anything that would have caused this.

When I click it it seems to do something since the hourglass shows up but it never plays the music. I use Winamp as my default player but I also have Windows Media Player 10. I even reset all my audio and video associations with this "%Systemroot%\INF\unregmp2.exe /SetWMPAsDefault"

I use Windows XP SP2 and I have a Sound Blaster Live with the latest drivers. Winamp is set as my default media player. If you need any more info, just ask.

I run Windows XP with P4 2.0 GHz and 256 of RAM, but when ever i play games online for a short time, my computer freezes. Also, when i play songs for say an hour or even less, the computer freezes. I don't know what is the problem. This happens at least twince in a day.

The other disgusting problem is that, at times, the computer goes off unceremonously whiles working. This also happens at least once in a day.

Sounds like a build up of heat, the most common cause of 'freezing' try running with the case side off and see if there is improvement, if there is you need to add more cooling, making sure your current fans are working properly and are clear of fluff and muck can improve cooling performance dramatically especially the CPU fan and heatsink.

So this one is pretty weird for me. I've never had any issues like this before, but I think it has to do with having all my drivers up to date. I was having this problem for a long time where I couldn't run games for too long because eventually the whole screen would get all glitchy and the last second of sound would repeat itself over and over until the monitor went into power saving mode. I tried reinstalling drivers, installing different graphic drivers like NGO and Omega which I had before.. Nothing worked!

Well, just recently my friend showed me this program driver cleaner pro and he said it helped him with his driver issues. So I followed the directions, uninstalled my drivers, cleared everything with the program in safe mode, restarted and reinstalled the drivers. Voila, all my games work with no issues at all, except for Counter-Strike 1.6.
Then I tried to watch a movie; It plays fine, I can hear the sound fine, but the video doesn't play. Even when I tried to record a video with fraps of one of my emulators (which has worked before), it didn't show video on playback.

So I restarted my computer.. now all my games don't work except Diablo 2, Starcraft, and CS 1.6. However, now I can watch movies with no problem at all! These past couple of weeks I've been having to go through the whole process of using driver cleaner pro, and installing Omega drivers again everytime my computer needed to reboot.

I recently got some help running this game already, but I had two other things that I would like to know.

First is playing without the CD. I know this is legal when you own the game, so I'd like to know what I would use to make this game able to boot without the CD. I searched for the topic because I know there are a lot about this idea already, but the terms used are contained in many posts so I oculdn't locate one, plus if someone knew in particular to this game it would be better.

Second is a program that would let me play the game in a window. Again hard to find and better luck if someone knows for this game in particular.

Thanks a ton!

I am trying to play system sound through Skype calls so that the other end can hear. I have tried using a Virtual Audio Cable for this but the quality is really bad, just sounds like I'm blasting a speaker into the mic. I've looked through online tutorials and most of them have a simple solution; Stereo Mix. I've enabled Stereo Mix, made it default device, enabled it through my mic in Skype audio settings. The only problem is, when I play a Youtube video, the sound doesn't go through. This is my sound control panel when playing music:

As you can see the visualizer on the right side is completely silent, and it's not going through at all. I've tried numerous combinations (mic is default communication device, mic is disabled, stereo mix is default device, etc) and they all don't work. I've searched elsewhere for solutions and they are all faulty. I feel like I'm missing something huge here. Hope one of you can help me. Thanks

Haven't tried to play audio cd's since I re-installed Windows 98SE several months ago as my music is on the hard drive. However, when I tried today to play an audio cd, I got an error message: "WMP encountered an error when reading the CD ROM drive in digital mode. Click OK to switch to analog mode."

Nothing happened when I tried to do this. Went to Tools/Options/Devices and clicked on the relevant hard drive - nothing happened. Tried to open Properties and it wouldn't so I can't get in to see what the setting is.

Data cd's seem to be OK. My music already on the hard drive plays OK.

Any ideas? Thanks

Hi Everyone,

Here's a weird one for you....

I have a Compaq laptop (work) and when I am in hotel rooms away from home I like to play MP3 music files as we all do. However, when I play these music files they start off OK, then after say 5 to 20 seconds, the music plays in slow motion!!! I don't know if it is actually half speed, but the notes are the same pitch - just down an octave or so...!! I can press 'pause' then 'play' straight away and it resumes at normal speed, but again after 2 to 20 seconds resorts to half speed ...

This happens for MP3's with both Windows Media Player and Winamp..... strange eh!

Has anyone experienced the same problems ??? and does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do??

A:Can't play games i just play BSoD (lol)

Ok, first it could be an issue with your graphics card drivers. I suppose you have that 9600gt in your signature, so I'd recommend you do this:

1. Download Driver Cleaner PRO: http://www.download3k.com/Install-Dr...fessional.html
2. Download these Nvidia drivers for your card (not the most recent, but the most compatible and reliable I found, they are good for solving issues): http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_182.06_whql.html
3. Go to Control Panel>>Add/Remove programs (if you have some other unninstalling software, for example Advanced Uninnstaller PRO or CCleaner, DON'T use them for uninstalling a driver. For the most times it doesn't even appear in the list), and remove both Nvidia drivers and Nvidia PhysX (if available).
4. Boot into safe mode, run DCP, select Nvidia and wait a bit. If for a long time (ex. 20 minutes) the system does nothing, just reboot into normal mode.
5. Install the drivers you downloaded.

Now try running a lot of games and let me know if the blue screens are less frequent, or some of them are gone and some remain. Then again it could be the PSU, so if this doesn't work I'd question the quality, what brand is it? :)

And it also f**ks up the video file itself just by being put on there though!

first off give small history of my PC. I bought my PC new Sept 2001. A HP Pavilion with 1.3 ghz, 256ram, and a 55gig hard-drive originally came with WinMe, since then I upgraded to XP. I kept my PC case clean, didn't try to install programs my PC couldn't handle, didn't go to any sites that knew were bad with viruses and such also had Malwareytes/spybot/avast/hijackthis to use, didnt install any toolbars, and tried not to have many programs open at the same time. I basically kept my PC simple with use.

Anyways around June I noticed some odd slowdowns
While playing Winamp and running a torrent with speeds of more than 400+ the audio would become choppy. This also happen when I would open FF, IE or any program while running Winamp, the audio would be choppy.

Extracting 700mb files from Winrar would take around 8mins

Playing Youtube, WMP, of VLC videos would be slow and choppy.

Transferring files from one PC to another over a crossover cable would take much longer. 4gigs of files would take about 20mins or so.

Virus scanners, Avast, Malwarebytes, and Spybot would also take much longer than usual.

So, about 2 weeks ago while my brother was on Youtube my... Read more

After installing WMP 9, I've not been able to play audio
CDs. Am able to play previously downloaded .mp* music and
videos, but not audio CDs from the CD players (Yamaha CD-
RW and Sony DVD).

Where do I start to look?
1) I've made sure the CD properties have "Digital" turned
off from Device Manager (i.e. analog).
2) I've done the same on WMP 9 device properties option.
3) When I "explore" the CD drive, I see files xxxx.cda
listed for each valid track.
4) I've re-installed the Codecs.
5) I've set "Work Offline"

OS: Windows XP (updated to the most recent essential
updates).

Your help is appreciated!

Hello

I have setup every application to "ask me before checking for updates",

Even when I am not using any brower, email or any opther application, I notice that my lights on my modem are blinking quite fast... that is something is being downloded. It has been going on for quite sometime.

How do I find out what is being downloded (or uploaded)?

I use
toshiba laptop
window 7 prof
IE9
MS office 2010
Internet secuirity (antivirus, etc ...) from Bell
Thank you very much
 

A:How do I know what is being downloaded?

And you have no browser open? And check for new email only infrequently?

You could try disconnecting from the modem and see if any program complains.

In Network Connections right click on your connection and select Status. Watch the Bytes sent and received to get an idea of the upload vs download and how much.

When you say downloaded, if you've kept your Vista updates up to date you should have SP2 and IE9. Go to your Windows Updates and install and check in restore hidden updates for more installations.

A:Think I Downloaded Something, Help

Hello and welcome to BleepingComputer I don't see any malware there.Some points:Do you have a bought license for Norton? Or did you get it for free? The reason I'm asking is, it's a really heavy app for an antivirus. You can install a better antivirus that's waaaay lighter and easier for the computer, and takes less ram and actually is more efficient too.So, I recommend uninstalling Symantec's products and installing AntiVir (That's the promotion license for AntiVir Premium -- 6 months for free. You can get their free edition here) or Avast! instead.Another valid point: when did you install Service Pack 3? There has been several flaws with it.. Some people have really bad problems with SP3, I seem to be one of the lucky ones with no issues. Did you notice the problems after installing it?Also have a read through THIS TOPIC.Finally.....Click Start >> Run and paste in:"%userprofile%\desktop\dss.exe" /daftClick OK.Click OK to the prompt from Deckard's System Scanner.Click Scan.Checkmark every entry found.Click Fix.Let me know how you get on.

I was working trying to fix my DVDFab express tonight, and I was using a keygenerator... bad I know... but anyways, I ended up downloading and installing something that made my desktop wallpaper go to white and flicker... THe program initiated a msdos looking window with an error message that asked me if I wanted to abort... I couldn't choose anything and had to reboot... that's when I found it had erased my wallpaper and I couldn't get it fixed.. i knew it was some kind of malicious program...

so i came to you guys and I have followed all your steps... My wallpaper is back and I think I have gotten rid of most stuf, but my computer is still running kind of weird, slow, just not the same....

32bit will only see 4gigs of ram and usually only be able to use abt 3.3 its also a bit slower depending on how you use it. when changing from one OS format (32bit) to another (64bit) it has to be a clean install.

Now about restoring you may have a backup there and available but since you are 32 bit and it isnt you cant use it. If you were to reinstall vista 64 it probably be available

system running : windows XP professional with sp3

okay, as the title implies, while surfing the internet a tab appeared in the firefox window that said "Updating..." but never showed/displayed anything. After that, I noticed the windows start/tool bar had changed from the XP theme version to the classic version. Then i noticed that there was no network connectivity. When I tried to look up what was wrong, the properties, rename, and delete options have been disabled from the right-click menu.
I received a message that there was attempt to update registry but whatever was done was restored, then my PC reboot.
what I've done so far:
I tried to boot using the windows xp CD but nothing happens. Windows eventually boots up, but I don't get any options to run repair or anything.
Used CA anti-virus for scan and found nothing (did this again in safe mode and still found nothing)
I did a search to see if I could find what was modified, it shows that all user accounts including a Helpassist?? account have been updated in some form or fashion so i don't know what else to do

I see svchost.exe, services.exe, and system taking up 50% of CPU occasionally but not sure what to make of that.

to get the internet started I tried to turn on some network services but all failed due to 'timeout'

Please let me know any ideas, or how to get started on trying to fix this problem.

thanks,
