Sometimes assuming that people read is not enough. Sometimes to pull them out of that assuming cloud, you have to hold thier hand. It is akin to teaching a man to fish, cause then he gets to sit back, enjoy the sunshine, and drink beer all day.
On x64 Windows installations...
media player = 32bit (uses 32bit codecs)
media centrer = 64bit (uses 64bit codecs)
After you fire up the proper player and test your files, assume nothing more, and open a beer.
Gotcha - I'll test later this afternoon... and bring the beer.
Also, I understand the 32 bit codecs on 32 bit systems etc, that is old news to me, but what I don't get is why Microsoft auto update would default-install the 32bit player on my 64bit install (and it did, I just checked), I think this is the "assumption cloud" you mentioned.
Ah, this may give us a clue as to why the 32bit is installed http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/0...64-as-default/
@alwazeer - Changing to the 32bit version on your 64bit may an option for you. The 'how to change' is in the above link (providing it works for your set-up, perhaps Shark007 knows). I have both installed now. Another option may be to only play real media files on the 32bit WMP and everything else on the 64bit, i.e. set the 'open with' to default to the required *.exe (workaround only I realise, not a solution).
