Window XP, SP2. Windows Media Player 11 - no image (its ok)

I'm watching a film in format "AVI" using WMP11. I seem to have sound but no picture and just download the most recent copy of WMP. How can I solve this?

I got FFDShow installed for a few years now and never had any problems with it (it's certainly a much better solution than the different codec packs). As FFDShow is able to decode more commonly used codecs, it is quite likely to solve your problem.

If installation of FFDShow does not help, then I suggest you open the AVI file in GSpot and report the video codec that is used in the file, so we can get you direct to the correct download.

    Windows Media Player and libraries contain no files, you just tell him

    Images can be captured from a DVD being played by Windows Media Player?

    Images can be captured from a DVD being played by Windows Media Player?

    It may be possible (depending on the version of WMP but
    It is much easier if you use VLC Media Player: it will capture
    just the screen video and save it in an image format in a folder
    of your choice.

    (FWIW... it's always a good idea to create a system)
    Restore point before installing software or updates)

    VLC Media Player (32-bit)
    (works on XP/Vista/7)

    (the name of the file to download is: vlc - 2.0.4 - win64.exe)
    (FWIW... it's always a good idea to create a system)

    For the installer for your screen Capture... Open VLC and
    Reach... Tools / Preferences / video button / video
    Instant image section.

    In the directory field... Search for and select a folder
    to save your captures po (for example... you could

    TO... Format, choose JPEG or PNG.

    Finally... on the left, click on the Save"" button.

    Now... Play the video and pause by pressing on your
    SPACEBAR when you see an image you want to capture.

    (Tip: you can play a video in VLC by right-clicking the)
    video clip and choose... in the menu «Play witn VLC»

  • Windows Media Player 11 on XP SP2 has lost all its music library and will not allow him to add again.

    I have the media player 11 and it worked very well.  Yesterday I opened a session and opened it, and there is no music in the library.  Playlists are still there.  I tried to manually add folders to watch. No joy.  When I repeated the procedure for adding, records Analyzer was still empty.  As if I never said what to monitor.

    I followed the advice offered in this forum at staceygumbert and followed a link to:

    This notice did not.  Once I deleted the database because it suggests that WMP asks about media sharing.  When I click on the button 'Settings' WMP fails and sends an error report.

    If I connect my wife, everything is OK.  I tried to copy its database through my user profile.  No joy.

    My Roku Soundbridge can't 'see' libraries.  However I think it's to be expected considering not having WMP does not all libraries.

  • C00D0FF4 error message when you try to share the media in the Player Windows Media Player 11 and Vista Home Premium SP2 64-bit

    I can't share my media using WMP 11.  When I try to do, opens a window of options asking how I want to share media files (with xbox, other users, etc.), and I select the options and click OK.  Then, when I return in the sharing of multimedia files to see if the media are indeed shared, a window opens informing me "Media sharing has been disabled because a required Windows setting or component has been changed. For any additional help, click Help on the Web. When I click Web help, the error code above, with a few troubshooting not.  You must ensure that Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service is turned on.  However, when I get to the list of Services, WMP Network Sharing is not.  It is also a step to confirm the ownership of a registry subkey.  When I try to access the subkey HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Preferences\HME\ [security ID], however, there is no security ID subkey.  Instead of that, by virtue of the MCH, there is a list of "default (name), REG_SZ (type) and not the value (data)".

    Suggestions about how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.  Would it be useful to simply uninstall WMP and start over?  If so, how to do that?  I saw an obvious way to do it.

  • Windows Media Player not able to synchronize audio files for MP3 player

    Windows Media Player 11 issues

    I updated win xp home edition from sp2 to sp3. Also updated for Windows Media Player 11. WM11, I cannot sync to my mp3 player that I could use this feature in sp2 and the latest version of WM. Sometimes it will play music on the mp3 player, but close WM11 after a period short piece. When WM11 opens, I choose a song and play music for a brief period before an error box appears stating windows media must be closed due to erroer or error DRM Setup utility. Sometimes, it closes when you click on a song without any error message that appears. Updates that I updated to Windows Media. Have not tried burning / ripping any CD or adding new music to the library. Just try to play files of current music and trying to put music on an mp3 player. MP3 player is a simple player RCA 'Pearl '. Nothing complicated. Never had any problems before WM11. Can roll back to WM 9.5 (I think)... but no sync button. WM 10 does not able to download Pack SP3. Don't know what to do. Questions about this on the Microsoft Web site do not meet my windows media problems.


    Thanks for the reply. I uninstalled WMP11. Old version had the ability to sync... just had to learn to move into the old version... different screen. I'll go back and try your method.
