Codecs: Frequently asked questions
http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/codecs-frequently-asked-questions

All you need is good Codec - get these if 32-bit.

-Free - CCCP also get free tool of insurgents
http://CCCP-project.NET/

FFDSHOW - free
http://sourceforge.NET/projects/ffdshow/

Check here:

Plug-ins for Windows Media Player
http://www.Microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/plugins.aspx

---------------------------------------

VLC needs, of no use so usually Codec as a backup when asked to support associations of files just say no.

VLC - free
http://www.videolan.org/VLC/

-------------------------------------------------------------

If 64 bits and you need codec.

Read this 1st and go that route, or use the one below. (Vista or Windows 7)

http://www.Vistax64.com/sound-audio/152850-Vista-codec-pack-32bit-64bit-Media-Player-codecs.html

--------------------------------------------------------------------

If 64-bit - can run WMP in 32 or 64 bit mode.

Or try these: download - SAVE - go to the place where your put them RIGHT CLICK – RUN AS ADMIN.

For 32-bit use these - OR the 32 bit ones listed above which I prefer.

K - Lite Codec Pack 8.0.8 (or newer)
http://www.codecguide.com/

Use them for 64-bit:

K - Lite Codec Pack 5.5.0 (64-bit) (or newer)
http://www.codecguide.com/

-------------------------------------------------------------

You know that you use WMP 32 or 64

Change, modify or value 64-bit Windows Media Player 11 (WMP11) in Windows Vista x 64 as default (or WMP12 - Windows7)
http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/01/19/switch-change-or-set-64-bit-Windows-Media-Player-11-WMP11-in-Windows-Vista-x64-as-default/

-------------------------------------------------------------

And you can use it when necessary because no codex is usually required.

    Hi, this is a mystery, but suddenly and without reason obvious, almost half of my albums do not show all arts album no matter what view, I use. However, when I browse through the files in Windows Explorer, I see that images (Folder.jpg, AlbumArtSmall.jpg and so on) are still there. And even if I stick a new image in the album inside WMP no album art appears.

    Thanks for any help!

    I suggest that you try to reset the media library. Note firstly reset the library will make you lose all play counts and ratings too. Then, follow these steps:

    -Restart the PC.
    -Click Start, type services.msc in the search field and press ENTER. In Services, locate the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service . If its status is started , double-click the service, and then click stop .
    -Click Start, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft in the search field and press ENTER. This folder opens in Windows Explorer.
    -In this folder, rename the folder Media Player as Old Media Player . If you do not see the folder, then it is probably hidden. Set Explorer to view the hidden files and folders and show protected system files.
    -Launch WMP, your library will have been reset and will be rebuilt. Check if the problem persists. Tim Baets
