Unable to adapt to the playback speed in Windows Media Player

Windows media player

Problem: Cannot use game fast speed

When I change the game of fast speed by watching a video the sound cuts. (Windows Media Player)

Maybe that's a problem with my sound card driver?


Hi Katchafire,

1. What is the format of the video file you are playing?

2 are you facing the problem with the single video or videos?

Usually, when you try to play the video fast, the sound stops.

For more information, you can consult the following article:

Hope this information is useful.

  • Speed of Windows Media Player settings

    Hi, I use Windows Media Player, version11.0.5721.5280 and I try to resolve (but not save) the speed of the files that I play. I click on "improvements" and "cruise control" which supposedly allows me to change the speed settings. However, the "cursor" which supposedly allows me to do so does not.  I am trying to transcribe something as soon as POSSIBLE, so your help is very appreciated!


    I suggest following steps and check if you do not have:

    a. launch Windows Media Player 11.

    b. open the menu improvements. Click view > enhancements > play speed settings.

    (c) or right click on the Now Playing > enhancements > play speed settings.

    d. now, you can see a sign "play speed settings. Click Normal slow or fast to adjust the speed. Or move the slider to adjust the speed.

    e. If you are having problems moving the slider, uncheck "Snap sider to common speeds.

    f. now you can adjust the playback speed in Windows Media Player 11.

  • How always show the toolbar of the improvements in the latest version of Windows Media Player?

    I made the switch from XP to Win7 64 bit and I would like to get WMP to behave like the previous version where the playback speed settings were still visible after the opening of WMP. I can't figure out how to activate this visibility option in the latest version. In the current version, I have to open the menu of upgrades, select the toolbar, and then rearrange on the screen to make it visible, and then set the speed.

    Clues on how to solve this problem so that I see the toolbar automatically everytime I open the program? Thank you.

    Hi usp.

    I'm afraid to say that you shouldn't find this option open by default as it was in previous versions of Windows Media Player. And there is no work around to get its default opening because it's by the architecture of the software.
    However there is an improvement in the same, instead of the default toolbar that we had previously we an arrow below the now playing tab where you can navigate in the development option.
    Here's how:
    1. start the playback of a file.
    2. click on the arrow on the tab playing, point to enhancements, and then click play speed settings.
    3. move the speed slider play on the speed at which you want to read the content, or click the slow, Normal or fast.
    4. to select speeds between the speeds of game marked, in the enhancements pane, clear the cursor Snap box common speeds.
    5. to hide the settings, click Close in the enhancements pane.

  • I can view is no longer the video files to the format AVCHD using Windows Media Player on my desktop

    I can view is no longer the video files to the format AVCHD using Windows Media Player on my desktop.

    I could at some point... but now all I get is audio, no video.  The files open and work on

    my laptop that also uses Windows Media Player... but for some reason now... nadda.  Seemed

    This all started when I upgraded Windows more late service CAP and also installed Real Player.



    • What version of Windows are you using?

    1. it is possible that you are missing the codec to play the file or it is clashing with other codec files.

    2. the link provided below lists supported by Windows Media Player file format.
    It does not list the AVCHD or. MTS files supported file format directly:

    3. yet we cannot be sure at this point that the issue is due to interference with some files.

    Method 1:
    Alternatively, you can perform a restore of the system to a previous point, when the issue was not present. The System Restore tool uses points of restore to return the system files and settings to an earlier point in time. You can use it to restore the operating system to a point in time where you have not experienced the problem.

    Note: When you use System restore to restore the computer to a previous state, programs and updates that you have installed are removed.

    To do this, there must be a restore point from the system in which the connection was successful.

    Please refer to the below of the help links on performing a system restore.

    Method 2:
    You can determine which codec was used with a specific file; read the file in the player, if possible. When the file is playing, right-click the file in the library, and then click Properties. On thefile tab, look at the Audio codec and Video codec sections.

    Then you can uninstall any installed codec and install that you need to do the job file.

    If you have several codec for the single file to work they can clash and cause problems.

  • What is the latest version of Windows Media Player compatible with WM 6.5?

    I have a HTC Touch Pro 2 running Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone.  What is the latest version of Windows Media Player, I can use?

    You can not.

    Your question was not entirely clear.

    WMP is for XP, not the HTC device. If you have Windows mobile on your HTC, then it will be a Media Player built into it. If you have the latest version, AFAIK you update from 6.5 to what is the latest version of Windows Mobile. If its 6.5, then you already have the latest version.

    You can also see the MS Windows Mobile...

    See you soon,.

  • Import the data from the record music in Windows Media Player

    I'm importing WAV files in the music folder.  The data associated with these files include time and size of the file, running that were determined by Windows and listed with each track.  Windows Media Player has the value import these files, it does.  However, in random cases, the execution time is not captured by Media Player, and so they are reported in the burn list and will not burn.  I get a message that if I play the track, the running time can be picked up, but it did not work.  The information is complete in the music folder.  Is it possible that I can manually transfer these data? (Note - since posting this question, I decided to experiment.  I removed the tracks in Media Player lacking of run times and their re-importation with the menu item drop library «Add to library...» "and they have been re-imported with run times. Eureka!)

    Original title: Media player upgrade was worse than basic
    I recently updated my Player multimedia media Player 11 and now it won't play movies from AVI file that I used to be able to play easily on the outdated version. Why is this?


    Do you have an error message when you try to play with Media Player AVI files?

    When you try to play a file that uses a codec that is not installed on your computer, Windows Media Player attempts to download the codec from a Microsoft server. If the

    the codec not created by Microsoft), Windows Media Player displays a message that your computer is missing a codec.
