  • Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file when Pinnacle Studio HD 14 is running

    Windows Media Player encountered a problem while reading file he when Pinnacle Studio HD 14 is running

    Hello

    I have Windows 7 Home Premium. I installed Pinnacle Studio 14 ultimate test. When the Pinnacle program works-

    a. when I run a WMV file there is no audio data.

    b. when I rang a MPEG 2 file (720 p, 25 frames per second) OR a file m2t, Windows Media Player is not able to read the file and gives the error: "Windows Media Player has encountered a problem when reading what he gives.

    c. when I close the program Pinnacle all right and WMP reads all of the above files correctly.

    I also recently installed and uninstalled Corel VideoStudio X 3 of the trial. First Adobe Elements 8 trial is also installed on the PC.

    I would be grateful yuour help solve the problem.

    Thank you

    Paresh

    Hello Paresh,

    The Pinnacle program is third party software that is causing the problem to occur. Pinnacle may be in conflict with your music files playing in Windows Media Player, that's why, I suggest you to contact pinnacle and check with them.

    Windows Media Player 12 is probably to use the codecs used by pinnacle, which may be the culprit.

    Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file. (MPEG)

    Don't know why Windows Media Player does not accept your mpeg.

    Just a suggestion:

    Use a video converter and change your mpeg to wmv format and read it.

    If you don't have a video converter, google for a free Converter. No need to buy a.

    You can also install VLC media player.
    It's free.
    He plays almost all kinds of formats.
    It is widely used and recommended.
