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.

Sound Issue With Media Player Classic

Sound issue with media player classic (had the same issue with winamp, but fixed with plug-in)
Basically l have a 5. 1 speaker setup, all speakers are setup properly and work (drivers are up to date as well and the control panel is set up as 5. 1).

However when running video files through either media player or media player classic while the sound does play its only limited to my front speakers, my rears stay completely quiet. The codec pack l have installed is cccp, l have tried k-litehowever that rendered media player soundless when playing mkv files and playback was in slow motion (or so it seemed) so lm left with having to use cccp as its the only codec pack that runs properly, has anyone out there been able to work out why sound doesn't use all speaker?

Maybe even fixed the problem, as mentioned in the topic title l did have a similar issue with winamp which l fixed using a 3rd party plug-in (link below). http://www.Winamp.com/plugin/vl-sound-for-vista-7-v1-0-0-17/183408

Media Player Classic Has Stopped Working

I have windows media player classic 6. 4. 9. 1 (revision 73) installed and following a windows update it no longer works. When trying to play an avi file i get the following error message:

Media player classic has stopped working
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

I confirmed that it was the update as i did a system restore and rolled back to before the updates were installed and tried the same file again and it proceeded to play. On carrying out the windows update i am again unable to use windows media player classic.

The updates that were install are as follows:

Kb978251
Kb975560
Kb974145
Kb905866
Kb978262
Kb977719
Kb890830
Kb971468

I've also tried re-installing the codecs from k-lite but still no joy. Please could someone help as i quite like using windows media player classic.

Media Player Won't Save Playlists

Okso i just recently got a new lap top, and to begin with, media player was working fine, saving play-lists and everything, then all of a sudden it decided to add every library from every other computer in the house to its own library, and the problems started. I couldn't view my own library anymore, and no new play lists would save.

I've deleted everything that isn't on my computer from my library, but it still won't save any new play lists, and keeps saying "windows media player encountered a problem while creating or saving the play-list" does anyone have an idea of how to fix this?

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 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 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.

Save As File Locations

Often when saving a file, a window pops up with several, what appear to be random, file locations listing where the file can be saved. Some of the locations are actually internet sights. I, always want to save the files to a folder on the hard drive of my computer, usually in the documents folder or a sub-folder. The list of available locations is getting longer and it's hard to find the documents folder in this list. How can i delete all the locations, especially the internet locations, and keep this drop down list manageable?

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 Save File To Remote Server

My site is hosted on a server with frontpage extensions installed. As such, i can edit my html files directly on the server, but also i have been able to open excel files that are located on the server, update them and then save them directly to the server itself. That was when i used windows xp.

Within windows xp i had added my site via 'my network places' and so could open the xls files within the 'open' dialogue box in excel (2007), click on 'my network places' and then double-click my site and login to view the xls files that i want to edit.

Since i have switched to windows 7, i find that i can no longer do this. I have added my site as a 'network location' in windows 7, but if i log into my site either via windows explorer or within excel, there are no files listed - it is just blank. I can open a file in excel if i type in the exact url address for it in the 'open' dialogue box, but when i try to save it, i find that i cannot save it to the server - the error message is "document not saved".

I really don't want to go back to windows xp, so is there a way to restore the functionality that i had in xp - editing and saving excel files to my server - within windows 7?

Downloading Issues / Save Or Open The File Message

Okay, i first noticed this issue when i was playing team fortress. Whenever you enter a server you'll be presented with a server message, which is a html page with-in the program (from my understanding). But when my computer is about to load the server message it minimizes and i get a message saying if i want to save or open the file, if i click open it will open in my browser and the in game window will be blank. Its happened to a few other programs as well, for instance when installing a program the eula will come up as a html doc within the installed and i have to scroll to accept, however it again asks me to open or save, if i open it will open in a browser.

The last place i noticed it was in outlook, whenever i get new mail, instead of doing the normal thing outlook does with mail it asks me if i want to save the file it's receiving. At first i thought my temp folder was full, cleaned it and i still get the issue. Its really limiting what i can do on my computer, could anyone help?
