  • 1. Check for updates greyed out
    I have mp10 and tried to check for updates via the help tab and it is greyed out. How do I repair/reinstall media player?
  • 2. WMP-10
    WMP-10 (v10.00.00.3646) suddenly stopped playing 640x480 video clips taken with my Canon SD-300 digital camera. I get the following message: Windows Media Player encountered an unknown error. This can occur when another program or operating system component encounters a problem but does not communicate the nature of the problem to the Player. Any ideas what I need to do to get it working?
  • 3. Thinkpad gone silent, except for midi files
    Recently my T43 quit playing sounds in Windows Media Player, Realplayer, or in IE at web sites such as CNN or NPR. I have checked all the obvious settings (ie, everything the sound-problem troubleshooter mentions) and everything seems to be OK. Ran a diagnostic program PCDoctor and my machine is good. It WILL play midi files in Windows Media Player and in IE at web pages with midi tunes. I am using XP SP2 and am absolutely current on updates. I have heard of people with this same problem after loading the fix for the recent WMF problem--could there be something there that needs adjusting? Please. Any ideas things to try? I have spent almost 3 hours on phone with IBM support, who had me check the settings and reload the driver.
  • 4. Codec missing error playing .wma file....
    Our local library subscribes to NetLibrary. As a library card holder I can download audio books from the NetLibrary web site free and get a license to use the files for 3 weeks, renewable once. Unfortunately, the files are in .wma format and are DRM protected. I say unfortunately because it makes troubleshooting this problem more difficult. I have downloaded a couple of .wma files on my desktop and tried to play them. I get a "codec missing error message." I click on the web help button, it tells me I'm missing codec 161. I get codec 161 and install it but it doesn't fix the problem. I've listened to a couple of different .wma files from the library on my laptop and don't have the missing codec problem. Where DRM muddies the water is I can't play a file that's licensed on one machine on the other to see if the problem is with the file or with the individual installation of Media Player. So...any suggestions how I can kick start Media Player to play the library's .wma's? Win XP Pro Media Player 10 All patches up-to-date tia --jeff

wmp 10 open video in separate window?

Postby Chris Eilersen » Sat, 14 May 2005 06:54:14 GMT

When watching movies from Cinemanow in wmp 9, a separate window opens and 
allows me to view in double or full-screen size. WMP 10 just opens the video 
in "Now Playing" and doesn't offer the same controls as WMP 9.

Also, the streaming doesn't seem near as good in WMP 10. Are there controls 
I can adjust in 10 to fix these issues?

4.WMP 10 video shows black spaceon bottom of video

In skin mode, I have the Corporate skin selected, because it's just my fav 
for compactness. I was watching a video and for some strange reason out of 
the blue it started showing a black bar on the bottom of the video about half 
the vertical size of the video, all the way across horizontally. So now when 
I open a video that's 640x480, it appears to be about 640x720- the video 
itself is in perspective, but it annoys me- yes, i do have "Fit player to 
video on resize" checked. When I shrink the video, you know to see if the 
black space will go away, the video and black space just become equally 
proportionately smaller. 
Again, this prob just happened out of the blue while playing a video- i am 
not going to install/reinstall any codecs- mpeg2 and wmv8/9 vids alike have 
the prob.
