Classic Media Player Choppy Video

I am a 7 user, when watching many video files, such as movies and shows, i come across dragging the classic player and it suddenly just either has a very choppy movement when dragging or stops in 1 place until dragged again, (repeat process until i want it where it is). Found it a real nuisance ever since i moved onto 7, hardware is not a problem as my system follows by these specifications

-Core i7 920

-Evga 260gtx superclocked (drivers do not matter, i've tested with this machine and another machine, same problem)

-1. 5 tb western digital
Running windows ultimate dual booted 32bit and 64bit (for specific applications i require to use in 32bit)

What i'm thinking is, is it just the way 7 was done and it's compatibility? Or is it just the player? Because i completely put all my trust in using classic player my whole life.

Media Player 12 Streaming Video Stutters

I've been having this problem for awhile now and i'm about at my wit's end with it. When i'm streaming any kind of video using wmp12, the video and sound just briefly stutter every 5 seconds or so and it's incredibly irritating. It doesn't seem to be a bandwidth/buffering issue, as it doesn't occur in other media players (media player classic for instance) and changing the network buffering settings to force as much as 30 second buffering doesn't seem to affect it (and it starts doing it before the 30 seconds of buffered time has elapsed).

It doesn't do it, however, if i download the file and play it from the hard drive. I have all sound enhancements turned off, srs wow turned off, and my video and sound drivers are current. I am running windows 7 home 64-bit. If anyone has any other ideas to try, i would very much appreciate it.

Media Player Not Showing Video In Library

I'm running 64bit win 7. The media player shows video in skins and now playing modes, but when switched to library mode or when initiated in library mode the video seems to play but doesn't display. How might this be corrected? Also, i'd really like the enhancement for video controls always displayed (as i've had in earlier m-player versions). How can i set this ?

Media Player Has An Error And Can't Open That File

"windows media player has an error and can't open that file"-this happens even when opening an unrelated file or program. When trying to run simple programs or open a random file, wmp will open and pop up the error that it has an error and can't open the file. Troubleshooter says no fix, and there is no error #. It blocks me from opening things. I have windows 7 home premium and using the appropriate wmp. How do i get it to stop without having to uninstall it?

Media Player Do Not Stream Mp3 Files To Lg Bd390 Player

Windows media player streams video, pictures to lg bd390 player, but not mp3 files. How can i get to work? I am successfully using wmp12 as upnp server over wireless network to stream video and pictures to lg bd390 blu ray player. However, while the bd390 shows audio file, on selection, it times out suggesting "network congestion issues". Is there a fix to this problem. By the way, nero homemedia 4 essential, which comes with player, does play all media types, but seems to be messing up my network in other ways. I would prefer to get wmp12 to work. I think nero product uses wmp12.

Automatic Media Information In Media Player Stops

I'm running wmp12 on win7. I placed a bunch of mp3s in "my music" folder, then went into windows media player and in options for "automatic media information updates for files" i checked all the boxes (with the sub-selection of "only add missing information"). So as i anticipated, wmp started to organize all my music into nice little folders (like itunes). But then after getting about half way through, it has just stopped. So half my music is organized and half is not. Does anyone have any idea why it stopped and how i can get it to finnish the job?

Video, Media Problem

When i try to play a youtube video or listen to music on media player, they simply do not respond. I have been going through this forum and trying options out such as uninstalling avg, deleting the media store update, acceleration(which my computer does nto allow to change). Before when this program occurred i would restart my computer and ti would work, but then a few hours would pass and the same problem would occur, but ti would temporarily solve the problem, now it doesn't do this at all. I never had this problem with vista, only when i installed windows 7.

My specs
Windows 7 64-bit
Intel core 2 duo t9500 2. 66ghz
4gb of ram
500gb hd
Ati mobility radeon hd 4570

Windows Media Center Watch Live Tv Video Issues

When i run the test under windows media center for tv signal strength through my tv tuner, i see that all the channels have the maximum number of green bars (i.e. Very strong signal strength). But when i try to watch tv on some channels two seconds later i get very choppy video which is impossible to watch. Why would the test show a strong signal but the video not resolve. I have a 2. 2 ghz core2 duo, and a 512 mb nvidia video card, so i don't think it's a hardware limitation. Also, this wouldn't explain why i only have a problem sometimes. The problem doesn't seem to happen specifically with high definition - sometimes hd shows work fine, sometimes not. Any help would be much appreciated this is very confusing.

Notepad++ File Association

I can't get a file association to work with notepad+, but the program works normally otherwise. Other file associations are fine eg i can set . Gif to whatever i like and it will open that program consistently, but setting .xml to open notepad+ has no effect; the program is not listed in "open with", not even under "other programs", despite clicking "browse" then the application name as i would under win xp.

Strangely, right click "edit with notepad+" works, but is clumsy when you need to open dozens of xml files at a time like i do.

Media Player Gone

Yesterday i began having problems with media player 11. I tried to get help from microsoft and hp with no luck. I tried to uninstall it thinking i could reinstall it and solve the problem. I couldn't find an uninstaller anywhere, yes i tried the control panel. So i tried to delete the whole file thinking i could just download and install another. I couldn't delete it until i changed the permissions and restarted the computer.

Now my media player is gone and none of the downloads i'm getting are working. All i'm finding are for vista or xp and an update for 7n etc. Does anyone know where i can find windows media player that will install on windows 7? I have other media players that work, but i'm more familiar with the windows one.

Media Player 11 Or 12

My wife hates. Hates the new media player that's on her windows 7 os. I know you can disable it. My question is if i disable the player for her will i be able to install media player 9 on her system? As a side note, i followed instructions from a helpful person on this forum to stop my media player 11 from adding all my sound bytes from a recording program i have on my windows xp. It worked for a day but now the media player is at it again, it constantly adds gigs of sound bytes to the media player library.

I just reverted back to media player 9 and i'm waiting to see if it happens on that version. I like the media player but if it continues to add those files to the library i'll have to drop windows media player. If anyone has done a search on problems people are having with windows media players on the net. It's literally millions of people that hate these players lol. Ok maybe it's not so funny.

Media Player 12 In-compatible

I recently installed windows 7 onto my laptop, upgrading from windows vista. I had windows media player 11 on vista and i understand windows media player 12 comes with windows 7. However, the first time i tried playing some music, windows media player 12 was just a desktop shortcut. The program had deleted itself some how. This would not be a problem if i could download another copy. But the two windows media packs for kn and n windows both say they are incompatible with my computer. Can anyone help? Or must i abandon my music listen on my computer?

Skins For Media Player 12

I asked about this a couple of weeks ago, and received an answer. Unfortunately, i've been away from the forums for awhile and am sorry i didn't respond then. Anyway, i downloaded a skin for media player 12 and now none of the skins work. Well, all i get is a white box in the shape of the skin and if i hover the mouse over the correct places i can use the controls. If i click on skin chooser the player stops working altogether. A window appears saying that windows will stop the program and search for a solution.

Someone told me in this forum to uninstall media player from control panel under turn windows features on or off but it didn't work. Evidently this doesn't actually uninstall media player, it just deactivates it. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. I promise i will keep in touch. I would like to thank whomever helped the last time, i shouldn't have left you hanging. By the way, i am running windows 7 64 bit home premium.

Media Player 12 Issues

I've recently purchased a laptop with windows 7 home premium. I'm a fan of music and as such i have a wma lossless catalog consisting of over 1000 cds. I'm also a fan of album art over pretty lighting effects. I've scanned each cd's cover art to show 960 x 960 jpeg clarity. So far windows 7 works well except for windows media player. I don't want to have to re-rip my entire collection to another format (just reverting back to wmp 11 would be acceptable).

Library not loading correctly, if song title doesn't match online content completely then music goes to "unknown" folder. Am unable to view my own album art (960 x 960) versus online album art (sub 300x300). No advanced tag editor? If these issues cannot be resolved, how do i install wmp 11 on a windows 7 machine? Very disappointed so far.

Media Player Is Corrupted

I purchased a new hard drive from a local computer store. They removed my vista system and put windows 7 ultimate on as operating system. They slaved my old drive as a e: local but had reformatted it. I have had no problems with downloading media but some of my files show the media corrupted message when i try to use them. Is there a easy fix for this problem or if i purchase a ultimate upgrade disk would that repair the damage? I have tried to use the fix it micros, and windows updates but the problem is still there.

Media Player 12 Library Help

I am not able to delete any of the sample music that came pre installed on windows 7. I deleted the files from the my music folder/my videos but i cant delete them from windows media player 12 or windows media center. I would like to know how to do this. When i hit delete on them nothing happens same thing if i drag them to the trash. That's not close to the big problem though. I am not able to add any music to the library without it all getting deleted once i close wmp 12. How can i get around this?

It is a brand new computer i just bought it. It came installed with windows 7 home premium 64 bit. It has no virus or anything like that wrong with it.microsoft sure did mess up with wmp 12, wmp 11 was great but they font have it for windows 7 that im aware of. I also tried to re-download wmp 12 but i couldn't find the link to download it. They kept trying to make me download a plug in for it instead of the player itself. Since there's such little problems with this operating system like this im already regretting not going with a mac.

Media Player 12 And Powerdvd 8

I recently upgraded my laptop from xp to windows 7 ultimate. Now i can't seem to play dvds. Not sure if i have one problem or several. I have tried using the included windows media player 12, and i get video with no sound. I used cyberlink's powerdvd 8 with xp, and tried re-installing that but it no longer works either. It starts the video feed, with no sound, then crashes and says "this copy protected disc can not be played when the tv out function is enabled"

Thinking i might have a display setting issue in windows i looked under hardware->devices-> and under display. I see the same thing in both "generic pnp monitor" "with standard vga adapter". That's it.
I've already updated all drivers.

Media Player Help And Support

My windows media player doesn't allow me to make a playlist. When i rip a cd, make my changes i then drag it into the playlist and nothing happens. I just doesn't move as a single file or a batch when all is selected. I did everything i could think of then went to help and got the following message: "you're not connected to online help, which shows you our latest content. Check your internet connection, and then try to connect to online help again. If you still see this message, the online help may be temporarily unavailable. "

My connection is very good and a friend checked and online help is available. I did restart computer and also my modem as a "what the heck" effort and all is the same.

So really there are 2 problems.

1) media player, new with this computer which i bought about 1 month ago
2) online help and support which i can't reach through the media player or the start button-both routes give same message.

My internet hookup is working well. Got any ideas?
