So to fix use, and save the below as "fix_movie_associations.reg" and run it from the desktop. Now all the media should be playing in WMC and WMP

Save the below into a *.reg file and run it.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.asf]
"Content Type"="video/x-ms-asf"
"PerceivedType"="video"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.avi]
"Content Type"="video/avi"
"PerceivedType"="video"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.divx]
"Content Type"="video/mpeg"
"PerceivedType"="video"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.flv]
"PerceivedType"="video"
"Content Type"="video/x-flv"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.m4v]
"Content Type"="video/mp4"
"PerceivedType"="video"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mp4]
"Content Type"="video/mp4"
"PerceivedType"="video"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mpe]
"Content Type"="video/mpeg"
"PerceivedType"="video"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mpeg]
"Content Type"="video/mpeg"
"PerceivedType"="video"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mpg]
"Content Type"="video/mpeg"
"PerceivedType"="video"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.mov]
"Content Type"="video/quicktime"
"PerceivedType"="video"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.MPE]
"Content Type"="video/mpeg"
"PerceivedType"="video"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.wmv]
"Content Type"="video/x-ms-wmv"
"PerceivedType"="video"

Please Rep if helped...Top Right Scale of this post..
Forgive my noobishness but does this allow other file types to be played in the "movies" section so i could use YAMMM and get cover art? I should add I do a streaming only set up to 360's.

I have a dma2200 the one with the player (it lags). I've just converted my movies and video clips until now thanks for the above info I'll give it a shot. I have since set up a PC just dedicated to media hooked to my tv for netflix, and sharing vid, music, and pic on my home network to my living room tv.

Disappointed to find that the dma200 does not support Netflix to the best of my knowledge. The very reason I converted to the media center PC. My research shows that the X-Box 360 is best way to go for things like streaming media and Netfilx etc.. Just something for thought depending on what you are looking for.

Why wont the media player or the media centre play MP4's?
Is there a good reason why MS don't equip either the media centre or the media player with the ability to play MP4's. I don't see why they can't play them,and surely it would be in MS's best interest if they could play them.
