When I get a video as an attachment to an e-mail, my Windows Media Player opens the attachment, but it will not play

Original title: Windows Media Player
When I receive a video as an attachment to an e-mail, my Windows Media Player opens the attachment, but it will not play.  However, if I go directly to the appropriate site (Youtube, for example), Windows Media Player will play the same video it wouldn't play my email address.  How to play directly from the email address?
What is the video attachment file extension? WMP does not play You Tube videos.

    Hi Maurice.

    2. what version of Windows media player is installed on the system?

    3. you receive this error code when updating the media player to a higher version or trying to open the media player?

    Error code 80070005 means generally that you're not quite allowed to iperform the task.

    You can open the administrator and check if you can update or open the media player.

    If the problem persists, try the following steps:
    a. download and run Microsoft fix this article (the same article can be followed when you get access denied error during installation)
    b. Once you have run the hotfix, restart the computer.
    c. install Windows Media Player 11 and check the result.

    Note: Running Microsoft Fix that it the article will reset the registry and the file permissions.

  • When you use Windows Media Center on the Xbox 360 DVD have not given chapter.

    After finally finding many questions I have my Xbox Media Extender and running upward and only this question left.

    I'm ripping my DVD to single file .vob she seems to like and plays very well, but it is only with the file movie and nothing else in the record.  How the XBOX sees it, the bed and he plays very well.  However I have no control outside the break and if I restart it takes over the job.

    Now if I rip my DVD with the .bup .ifo files in this folder the XBOX instantly he shoots in the list of the DVD and it will not play.

    When I use Windows Media Center on my PC it preforms even when the film is in the folder.  Then when I add bup and ifo data I can still play, but he has all data in the chapter that I need.  Shows all the chapters, allows me to jump as I please.

    How can I get my XBOX to behave like my PC?  I have to remove these 4 files in/out of the folder to see pop in and out of my list of XBOX.  How can I get the XBOX to validate data, so my movies actually have chapters and ignore the controls?

    Thank you

    Chris

    Hello, wilsman00

    As mentioned, by changing the VOB files, the data in the chapter are probably damaged. This can be confirmed by putting in a retail DVD in the drive and play directly from the DVD.

  • My Windows Media Player will play the video of an MPG file, but it will not play the sound. What is the cause?

    I do video editing.  I transferred my camera video file and Windows Media Player played the video and audio very well at the beginning.  I edited the file with editing software and exported the file again.  Now, the sound will not play using WMP but it will play if I use video editing software.

    As a result, I've uploaded new files from the camera and now WMP not give me sound on those either.  If something seems to be affected by my WMP.  Any help you can give would be much appreciated.

    Hi rgosmond,

    (a) don't you get any specific error message when you play the video?

    (b) what is the file format of the resulting video file after editing by using the video editing software?

    (c) you are able to play the files on the computer? You hear the sound?

    I suggest you try the following steps:

    O make sure that windows MediaPlayer is not muted, press F7 on the keyboard to turn the sound back on.

    Ø check if the volume is at a minimum in Media Player, press F9 on the keyboard to increase the volume.

    Verify that the default audio device is correctly set

    1. click on start, type Sound in the box to start the search.

    2. click on sound in the results of search at the top of the start menu.

    3. click on the tab reading notice the check mark next to the default device. For most users, the default device is speakers. Make sure that the audio settings are configured as expected. Follow these steps:

    4. on the playback tab, select the playback device, click Properties, click the Advanced tab and make sure that the default Format is set to the value you expect. When you are finished, close this window to return to the previous window.

    5. on the playback tab, select the playback device, click on configure and make sure that the configurations are set correctly.

    6. If the sound settings are well positioned, you are using speakers as the audio device and your speakers are already set as the default device, go to method 5 now.

    7. Select the audio device you want as the default audio device and then click on set as default.

    8. click OK to save your settings and close the sound dialog box.

    Now, check if the problem is resolved.

  • Windows media player displays the video like a color negative

    Had to wipe my hard drive and do a reinstall of Win - XP. Media player format has changed (another screen w / options) when you open attachments to emails, they play like color negatives. The audio seems normal, but the video is very bad.

    When you reinstall the operating system... you need to update completely
    the system for the current versions. You may need to
    update your video driver and you need also a current more
    version of Windows Media Player.
