Media Player required

I have an iMac late 2009, with OS X El Capitan 10.11.5, Safari 9.1.1. Recently, I tried to open something, and I said "Required Media Player." But in trying to download it, it says Power PC is no longer needed. How to work around this problem?

You do not have. Media Player is a Windows application.

Try the free VLC app for viewing.

  • Permit required for music I already own? -Media Player 12

    When moving my music collection from my old PC to my new one I found that, when you try to play certain songs, I get a message saying "license - a license is required to play the selected song or video. However, a license for this file is not found, has expired or has been altered.    To obtain a license for this content, please visit the website or open the software application in which the file was uploaded originally. You may be required to open a session or buy the song or the video.
    Some of these songs were stolen in a CD, I had over the years, that which some I have more. Others have been downloaded from Virgin Digital, which is no longer in existence. Then the message above does not apply to one of these groups, and frankly, I find it very embarrassing that I am being prevented from listening to music that I bought and paid for!
    Someone has an answer to this?

    You just got yourself in the most sensitive area of Digital Rights Management (DRM). Here's a quote for you to Web from Microsoft here:

    This problem occurs because the Windows Media DRM system maintains information based on the hardware configuration of the computer. If some components are changed, Windows Media DRM may not work because he can see the change as an unauthorized attempt to move the content protected to a different computer.

    This problem may occur if you have made one or more of the following changes to your computer hardware:

    • You recently changed hardware components, such as the CPU or the motherboard.
    • You have changed one of the settings of Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) your computer that affect hardware components, such as disabling CPU hyper-threading.
    • You moved the hard drive from one computer to another computer.

    To resolve this problem, restore your computer to the hardware configuration of origin or on the original BIOS settings. OUCH!

    If you can not fix as suggested in the line above, your best bet, if possible, is to connect to the online music store where you purchased the tracks and try to sync, in which case, the license is updated.

    What should have happened until you have changed your hardware is backup of your licenses with Windows Media Player. This information is stored in the folder
    %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Microsoft\Windows\DRM (example: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\DRM) which is a hidden folder.

    May be that the video file format is not compatible with Windows Media Player.

    Options: -.

    1] download and install VLC Player. It's free and supports file formats more than WMP.

    2] download and install the codecs

    Personally, I prefer VLC Player-if you have that then not need to download and install the codec of any third party.

    Hello

    Welcome to the Microsoft Community forums.

    I understand that you are not able to play a Webinar on the windows computer using Windows Media Player 8.

    I would be grateful if you can provide us with the following information to help us better understand the issue.

    1 you get an error code or the name of the codec to install?

    2. are you able to play other files with Windows media player?

    3. What are the file format of the multimedia files that you are not able to play using Windows media player?

    4. are you referring to the video file saved using Webinar?

    This problem is caused if the file format is not supported by windows media player.

    Codec compresses or decompresses media files. Windows media player uses codecs to play and create media files.
