Windows 7: Error C00D11B1 when playing M4V files in WMP12/WMC6

Error C00D11B1 when playing M4V files in WMP12/WMC6

I'm at my wit's end. When playing back certain files in Windows Media Player on my HTPC, I keep getting errors that it can't play the file. These errors always happen in the same place (that is, when I play a certain file it errors at the same location each time). When I click Web Help, it takes me to the Win7 page for error C00D11B1. Since the file is stored locally, only the first three bullet points apply, and all check out.

Here's what I've done so far:
  • Gone to this page and updated a security component, restarted WMP, then rebooted computer
  • Checked to see if the sound card was operating
  • Checked all sound devices for driver updates (none found)
  • Checked WMP to see if my M4V codecs were enabled (not sure if I found the right entry, but I think they are...other M4Vs play fine)
  • Googled the problem to no avail

I'm not sure what else to do, so I'm coming here. Here are my HTPC stats:
  • Files in MP4 format (.m4v files) with either AAC (faac) Dolby Pro Logic II 160 kbps or that plus AC3 Passthru auto bitrate, large file size, ripped from DVDs using Handbrake 0.9.5
  • HTPC running Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit
  • WMP version 12.0.7601.17514
  • WMC version 6.1.7601.17514
  • Sound devices are NVIDIA High Definition Audio (4 entries), PlayOn Virtual Audio Device, and Realtek High Definition Audio

The odd things is that I can play the files in VLC player, so I don't think the file itself is corrupted. Who knows at this point. Maybe I need new MP4 codecs? Or somehow play VLC straight from WMC? Does anyone have any ideas?

What codecs have you installed?

Just libavcodec, which is enabled by default. I have a couple of codec packages in mind (ffdshow, k-lite) but am not sure which entry under WMP's Options -> DVD -> Advanced I need to modify to make it work for M4V's.

A default installation of the Win7codecs with the x64Components addon should get those files playing in the Windows players. After installation, start each of the Settings Applications with a rightclick on the shortcut, choosing 'Run as Administrator' and select the button on the Help TAB to associate filetypes to the Windows players.

The computer I'm running this fix on is Win7 32-bit. Is there an x86Components I need to use instead?

Nope. All you need to install is the Win7codecs.

Hmm...I installed the codecs, ran the Settings application as an administrator, used the recommended settings, opened WMP and played the file. Same error: "Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file." VLC plays it fine at the same part of the file.

On the Misc TAB is a button to analyze a media file
use that tool to have a look inside that video file to determine what it needs to be played.
post the output here so I can have a look.

Edit: I saw that the format was MP42, so I looked in WMP to see if I could change the codec to something else from libavcodec. The only other option was "disabled". The same thing goes for AVC1 (listed under H.264/AVC in WMP).

Try manually changing the extension from M4V to MP4.
