Windows Media Player 12 does not!


I'm having a very frustrating problem with my WMP12...
First problem started at the opening of the multimedia files, he said FAILURE of the PERFORMANCE of THE SERVER. I googled the problem and did a few registry tweaks (only set permissions), and I also reinstalled WMP12. Now after reinstallation, I am unable to open WMP12. The process starts, but nothing happens. If I want to open a media file, it always gives me an error of the EXECUTION OF THE SERVER FAILED. I have already used the troubleshooting of the control panel to solve some problems, but not luck.
Please help, I really have to use WMP, but am now forced to use Winamp...

  • My copy of windows media player 11 does not play video.

    My copy of windows media player 11 does not play video. When you try to play the video (usually an avi file) I get audio and visualization. I tried to uninstall and install new, but does not. I chose also to all types of files media player by default but video still does not play.

    An avi file is simply a container that may have different types of files in it for video and audio.

    You probably don't have the correct Codec to play the video.

    Either download a codec pack such as K-lite or download a little program called G-spot, open it and drag your avi file in the center of the small window of G-spot.

    It will then tell you what Codec uses the avi file. You can then Google that particulat Codec, download and install it.

  • When I copy a CD in Windows Media Player 11 does not apply media information.

    With the XP sp3 operating system, I rip the CD purchased and Windows Media Player 11 does not apply media information. Either he gives and error saying that it cannot be done because I am not connected to the internet while I'm connected, or it can recognize my internet connection, but I have to do a manual search and manually apply the name of each track, even if they are present and order under each line I have to click to match the name of the correct track.

    It's so frustrating to have to fight manually for applied information on the media which is clearly presented, and after all, album art that shows correctly in the finder info media constantly refuses to fill in the library and I have to go to a separate Web site and copy and paste it in. Yes, he found elsewhere on the internet, with the help of the connection which was present all along!

    It's crazy, the info is already there! And why do I go online in any case the info is in the CD? This doesn't seem to be a problem with the previous players. Please provide a fix for this useless, frustrating dinosaur, waste of time, a process!

    My windows media player 11 does not work properly

    whenever I go to open a video with it, it appears on the taskbar, you can here the sound, but the player himself does not appear on the destop

    Hello rockys_rod,

    To fix it, simply remove your old library files. Then have Windows Media Player find your new files. It will not destroy your music files.

    How to get WMP to re - index your music:

    1. close Microsoft Media Player.
    2. click on Start and then run
    3. in the box, type the following:
    [list] %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player

    4. click on OK and a folder containing your library files will be displayed
    5. delete all files ending with .wmdb
    6. open Microsoft Media Player
    7. press F3
    8. Select the addresses of your music files
    9 WMP will re-index your music.

    If this does not help, try the FixIt in the article below:

  • Why not Windows Media Player 11 does not recognize w4a files in the library list more.

    I have Windows XP Pro (SP3) with Windows Media Player 11. I had a virus wipe my hard drive (everything has been updated) and after reinstalling and updating everything, it no longer recognizes the w4a files, but it automatically plays them the OMP 11 if I click on the file in Windows Explorer.

    Before the accident, all the files on my computer w4a was included in the library. Now the entire albums, as well as individual songs are missing. In fact, now NO w4a file is listed. So my question is, why does Windows Media Player 11 recognize the w4a files?



    Method 1: I suggest you try the steps from the link below and check if it helps.

    a. close Windows Media Player.
    b. find the file of database on the computer that contains the entries of your library. In general, the library database file (CurrentDatabase_219.wmdb) is located in the following directory:
    (Drive :) Users/xxx(the user name)/Appdata/local/Microsoft/Media Player
    c. right click on the file and then click Rename.
    d. rename the file by changing its file .bak extension.
    e. start the player. When you do so, a new database of library file is created.
    f. press F3 on your keyboard to open the add to Library dialog box search for computers.
    g. click the Browse button to search for a folder on your computer that contains digital media files. Specify the location of the folder in the box look in.
    h. click on the search button.
    The player will search for digital media files and playlists in the folder you specify and add to your library. If you have your files and playlists stored in different folders on your computer, you may need to search for files several times, by specifying a different folder every time.

    Method 2:
    You may need to rebuild the database of Windows Media Player.
    Here's how:
    To resolve this problem, delete the Windows Media Player database. To do this, follow these steps:
    a. exit Windows Media Player.
    b. Click Start, run, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Media Player and then click OK.
    c. Select all files in the folder and then click on Delete on the file menu.
       Note: You don't have to remove the folders that are in this folder.
    d. restart Windows Media Player.
    Note: Windows Media Player automatically rebuilds the database.

    Hope this information is useful.

  • Windows Media Player 12 does not work after you choose the initial settings

    I tried to use windows media player 12 on my computer laptop windows 7 and it won't work. It worked the first time and I chose my settings, but it would not open the player itself. I tried to do it on the guest account, but it's the same thing. Does anyone know how to fix this? -Chris

    My post was actually in response to JRTLOVER:

    Why we cannot uninstall and reinstall from the CD just Media Player... or is there a way to fix this?

    I have seen that it was already proposed earlier in this topic, my apologies.

    Regarding your problem, have you tried to launch directly executable WMP? To do this, click Start, type wmplayer.exe in the search box and press ENTER.

    You should also check if WMP is already running: start the task (Ctrl + Alt + Delete) Manager, look for one or more elements called wmplayer.exe on the process tab, select each item and then click end process , then try to start WMP again.

  • Windows Media Player 11 does not show my CD playlist automatically; "Find Album Info" in library works, if...

    Hello and thank you for reading my post.

    I just configured Windows Media Player (WMP) 11 after that he downloaded automatically by Microsoft Update and is surprised that, when I insert a CD purchased in the store in one (1) of my two 2 CD drives, he would recognize that a CD is here and with the right number and durations of his songs, but it would NOT automatically identify the CD and these songs.

    I found that I could get this information by manually entering the library (even if I don't permanently transfer the tracks on my hard drive at all), right-clicking on a tracks is on the air and by selecting Find Album Info... a few steps after that and all is filled in the playback in WMP, but the NEXT CD requires the same steps for ITS information appear here as well.

    Do you have any ideas about this, please?  I think I checked all the right boxes, but would walk by them with you gladly to the case where.

    The following utility can identify the codec that you need to read files:

    GSpot Super quick start

    ... then... Download the file to your desktop / unzip the file and run it.
    No installation is required)

  • Windows Media Player 12 does not all songs.

    Hey, guys!

    I have a little problem. I have a total of 4 700 songs on my computer. The Windows media player 12, however, only we add 1 230 my library. I just had to launch a song directly from Windows Explorer, because it is not present in the Media Player Library. This song is located in the My Music folder, which is supposed to be identifiable my Media Player. It is also in the music library of Win7, but not in the Media Player library... Any suggestions?

    Thank you


    m00cher, try the following steps to reset the media library:

    -Restart the PC.
    -Go to start - run, type services.msc 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.
