Media Player 12 Playlist Issues

2 issues with windows media player 12 play list option.

First, i used to be able to stop my music and close windows media player. When i would restart my computer, windows media player would remember where i was last playing in a playlist.

2nd issue is somebody sends me a video that i open up in windows media player, i used to be able to hit the back button and my music would resume at the last song in my play list. Can anyone help, or is this just an annoyance i have to deal with. Currently i have to print screen where i am in music so i can remember the next day what song i left off on.

Media Player 12 Making A Playlist

In windows media player 11, you could edit your playlist on the right side pane. While you were editing it, you could navigate your whole library and play files. However, wmp 12 removed that feature.

I start to make a playlist on the right side pane, then play a song (on the left; from my library) to see if it would go well in my playlist. But if you play the song on the left, the right side pane switches from your playlist to "now playing" which is the album of the song you clicked on from the left.

That seems like a huge down-grade. Why did this feature get removed?  How can i fix it?

Media Player Wont Play Dvd

I am running windows 7 home premium on a toshiba satellite notebook. The problem is with windows media player. Sometime i can put a dvd in the external dvd burner/player and it will work. When i shut down over night i cant get any dvd to load. I get the message "windows media player cannot play dvd video. You might need to adjust your windows display settings. Open display settings in control panel, and then try lowering your screen resolution and color quality settings. "

I have lowered the resolution and color setting but i always get the same message. Now i'm at a loss as to what to do. I bought this laptop to take on vacation to watch movies while on the airplane. The movies are on the hhd and do work when media player decides to work. The portable dvd player and the movies on the hhd play with nero show time but i have no sound and cant play the entire movie like i can with midea player. Any ideas?

Media Player 12 Crashes Whenever Try To Play A File

Hi, been there, tried that, still no joy. Used "method 1" and "method 2" i found here. Downloaded a load of new codecs. Updated video drivers. Turned off hardware acceleration, turned it back on again. Wmp still crashes whenever i try to play a file. I cam open wmp, and even see the library items. Just can't play them. I have win 7 home premium 32 bit.

Athlon 4000+, 2 gb ram, geforce 6800gt video card. Wmp works fine on the other pc (lesser spec and same card). I suspect something is corrupted in my version of win 7. Any suggestions gratefully received, i have downloaded vlc, but i just want to get this long-standing problem sorted. Iirc, wmp 12 has never run correctly on this machine.

Media Player 12 Cannot Play Dvd - Disc Region Problem

I have tried to play a home made dvd in wmp12 on my pc recently upgraded to windows 7. The dvd won't play giving the dialogue "wmp cannot play the dvd because the disc prohibits playback in your region of the world. You must obtain a disc that is intended for your geographic region". This is strange because the dvd is four years old and has played happily in win xp and vista on wmp prior to the upgrade to windows 7. Is there anything in wmp 12 that would cause this and how do i get round it?

Media Player Wont Play Dvd - Digital Copy Protection Problem

Windows 7 home prem 32bit. Inserted a dvd from netflix. I get this message:"wmp cannot play this dvd because there is a problem with the digital copy protection between your dvd drive, decoder, and video card. Try installing an updated driver for your video card"ok, so i have been playing dvd's using this same pc with this same drive with no issues and suddenly i insert a netflix dvd and it won't play? Let's call this drive #1. I have 2 dvd's installed in this same pc, inserting the netflix dvd into dvd #2 player, wmp plays it back fine.

Further, if i play back this netflix dvd in dvd #1 using power dvd. It plays fine. Now, since i can playback this netflix dvd using wmp in drive #2, and since i can playback this netflix dvd in drive #1 using power dvd, surely my video card driver is fine. The 2 dvd players installed in my pc are not the same brand, but i have been playing dvd's in both, playing them back using wmp, with no issues. So why the issue with this netflix dvd? Is there an explanation as to why this netflix dvd inserted into drive #1 won't play the netflix dvd using wmp? Is there a fix for this?

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?

Unable To Play Media

I am having a problem with windows 7. I seem to be unable to hear sound - i don't even get the start up chime. As far as i can tell all the hardware is working correctly - i've checked the devices are there, etc. But the problem is not just superficial. If i open media player it will just sit there thinking rather than playing anything. Other media players crash soon after opening (vlc, quicktime, smplayer, etc. ).

Furthermore flash doesn't even work - either it of the browser will crash if i try to watch a video (i've tried firefox and chrome). Restarting will sometimes fix the problem, but it seems to be quite persistent currently. This seems quite serious, but i don't know where to begin. Does anyone know what the problem is?
