Windows 7: Where IS Media Centre

10 Mar 2012   #11

XP, Win 7 x64 & x32

Thanks guys (& girls?), particularly SledgeDG, worked but second time. First time said that it could not make shortcut but renamed it (i.e. Media Center) anyway. Second time said file with that name already existed on desktop - do I want to replace it?... or whatever... hell yes! It appears with the right icon and all. Perseverance pays off... that or subborn bloody-mindedness and a refusal to accept reality.

This appeared third in Google to the query "media center where is it" so still relevant after all this time. Groovy. Thanks again SevenForums.

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.

Another Media Centre Bug...
Dual screens. One used under Media Centre (listening to radio or viewing a movie, or a recording...) and the other used for previewing photos with the native Windows Picture Viewer... Set the Picture Viewer into Slide Show mode and the Media Centre blacks out... :cry:
