Media Player 11 video will not play

Intersting problem here, searched various board and haven't seen anyone having similar problems.

When playing an MPEG video in MP11, I hit play, and the video does not play. It loads fine, I can drag the progress cursor around and see all the frames in the video, but the video itself will not progress. It doesn't crash though, no error messages, it just doesn't move... no sound either.

I can playback videos fine in other applications (movie maker, studio 10), with no problems.

Running Vista O/S.

Sounds like a codec problem, try uninstalling and reinstalling the codec that you have installed or try reinstalling WMP instead and see if the problem persist.

Try updating the Direct-x


http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en

here is the link to do so / the download will be around 25 to 26 mb but it takes about 15 to 20 min for the complete installation

let me know how it goes

Hello, Windows media players doesn't play mpg, mpeg, mpeg2 files by default. you need to download mpeg codec to play those files.

I suppose you should take a chance of Uninstalling and reinstalling the same application again and don't forget to restart your computer then.
