Windows 7: WMP Not detecting my media.

12 Jan 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
WMP Not detecting my media.

Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but I cannot stream media to my PS3 without my media being in the WMP library. My libraries are configured to point to the proper places, and the libraries show up in WMP as added when I try to add them.
Hopefully this helps.
I tried rebuilding the database, I tried deleting the database, I tried the "Restore Media Library" in Advanced options. Please help.

When it comes to videos, the compression formats that WMP12 recognizes as video are rare. Mostly DivX, XviD and WMV, all the rest should be under "Other media". If I'm not mistaken, PS3 can read HD video files with H264 video streams. Those kind of videos are definitely not going to show up under "Videos" library.

Why not? My WMP show everything and play everything.
Anyway, I think if you install CCCP you will be good! Here is the link: Link

I should have clarified: I have all of the codecs installed, and this worked flawlessly on a previous Windows 7 install. I reinstalled and now libraries are broken.
