Windows 7: MP12

MP12

None of my Mp3's will play with MP12, I get a error message saying something about the codec the file was made with. Is there a codec pack for MP12?

Since your problem is specific to MP3 I suggest that after install these codecs,
you go to the SWAP TAB and set FFDshow for MP2/3

Good choice Fluffy, thanks for jumping in.

Freogg, there are several more out there, just Google WMP 12 Codecs, and you will fine quite a few packages out there.

I loaded Win7codecs but Mp3's still won't play. Windows media video won't play either. Does it make a difference that I just went to Windows 7 x64 from XP x32?

No. Not sure what your problem is; am using the same Codecs with no problems.

It could be Windows Media Player itself thats at fault. Not any codec.

You can try this to uninstall and reinstall WMP12. It may help.
  1. Open Start, Type: Turn Fea
  2. Press enter, and look for Media Features
  3. Uncheck Windows Media Player and press OK.
  4. When prompted, restart.
  5. Repeat this again to reinstall it (but check WMP instead of uncheck).

Note   Note
Windows Media Center also is removed during this process, when doing step 5 you will also need to check Windows Media Center (its right above WMP) if you want Windows Media Center.

Tried uninstalling MP then reinstalling but I still get the same error! Any more ideas?

I tried to play one of the samples that come with Media player 12 and I still get this error:

Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.

What the f^#* is going on?
