Windows 7: Certain .mp3's won't play on Media Player 12 x86 (C00D11B1)

Certain .mp3's won't play on Media Player 12 x86 (C00D11B1)

I've disabled the only plugin enable on the 32 bit version (Media Player Plus!), but for whatever reason I receive the error code C00D11B1 when trying to play certain .mp3 files what've been there forever. I haven't been messing with any settings, at least directly. The 64 bit version of Media Player 12 however, plays these files normally. I have tried resetting one of my tracks' ID3 headers, but to no avail.

Check the codec that is being used to play them. A 32bit version of this file is probably not present. A way to tell the codec is to play the file in VideoLan, then while playing, go to Tools / Codec Information.

It won't always state anything in this window when I check, but it's always the same codec for .mp3s. VLC successfully plays everything though, even when I chose not to install any codecs with it.

Resolved the issue with installing K-Lite codec pack. Apparently some DirectShow decoders where also broken.

Media Player Won't Play Old CDs
I've got some CDs which I bought in the 80s and they are in excellent condition. However, WMP12 won't play them. They play slow and jittery. Ripping is out of the question too. Newly menufactured CDs are fine. Any ideas?

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.
