Windows 7: Problems with EVERY media player I try!

13 Oct 2011   #11

MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

Another option would be to use WDTV Live media player (a small hardware box, looks like a compact USB HDD from Western Digital with a remote control) with a couple of usb HDDs (upto 2TB) containing all the media (mp3s, movies, avi, mkv, mp4 etc, photos like JPGs etc...) connected to a HDTV by a HDMI cable. You will get full HD video with DTS passthrough, and an option to connect a Dolby 5.1 surround home theatre to get the best of everything.

There is a lot of difference in watching the movies on a HDTV in 1080i rather than watching movies on a computer.

I have been using this setup for the last two years (minus 5.1 surround home theatre) and very happy with the performance. You throw any file at WDTV and it plays without a hiccup.... One of the best media player in the market.

Can we actually opt out of any of the toolbars, especially ASK in the newest version?

It never asks me and always force installs it.
The last one I tried only allowed the opt out if the toolbar was already installed, for whatever reason.
If it wasnt present, it forced it.

Glad you got it sorted, and if you can turn the subs off in another app they are certainly in a/the file, not the video source.
