Windows 7: 64bit Media Player

i think you must have something wrong with your system - drivers maybe?

lots of other people use vlc or kmplayer with no problems (or maybe only minor problems)...

I really like it as it plays all the .mkv files I throw at it.

uuuh thats gonna take forever because i tweaked the hell out of my wmp12. but i guess it might be worth it. i'll get to it right away!

doesn't it say it uninstalls everything before installing though or did i misinterpret that?

well i can't argue that it's not. but i had vlc on my old system (vista 32) same problems with no codec packs installed and later with some codecs installed, i used vlc on my work computer as well, which was also vista 32 and it had incredible faults and crashes. i even replaced vlc player on my friends computer with kmplayer and she's loved me for it ever since. so i really doubt that it's just MY SYSTEMS but 64 is a new world for me, so this time with kmplayer it might really just be my system. like i've often said, i loved kmplayer.

what i think though, since you haven't had any problems with kmplayer i guess it's just your file selection. because i played the forgotten and some other series on my kmplayer and in the middle of the file the sound would just get distorted. which it never did on my old 32 system (with practically the same software+codecs installed). and it crashes on music videos that i used to be able to watch on my 32 system, further more it doesn't show any video footage of some clips and just plays the audio.

i often get clips from all kinds of sites, and blogs, even youtube, and other video sites, so naturally my clips are variously decoded. so maybe it's just that.

if you'd like i can sent you some clips that forced my kmplayer to crash and you can ask me whether they crashed yours too.

or maybe you're right it's the drivers. which would that be though? my graphics drivers? windows 7 pretty much found everything on my computer by default but i looked around to make sure everything was tagged correctly. i know i'm just a little girl but i do think i have the windows for dummies level of insight.

example of 1 of the many files i have that mpchc, gomplayer, and wmp12 fail to show me a picture of and just supply me with a sound:

i wish i had a different link for this but i don't. you're actually going to have to download both these files and unrar them in order to watch the video.

Yup, it looks like it does uninstall other codecs. Either that's new or I just didn't notice it before.

I tried to download those files you are having problems with to give them a try with the Shark007 codecs I have. I signed up for a free account but couldn't seem to be able to download them. Now I'm timed out for an hour before trying again. Do you have any other (perhaps smaller) ones I could try for you?

thanks for going through all that trouble! you're a sweetheart!

i hate uploaded.to as well but sadly that's the only link i could find this quickly, because i just downloaded that clip yesterday. i'd have to upload other ones myself. and they are all mkv files of about that same size. which would take me an hour to upload to rapidshare. so maybe you can just wait for the 1 hour timeout to pass ^^



(ps why did you sign up? you just had to go to that link wait 9 secs then press download - i didn't even know they had a free signup)

I pressed download, it opened another tab, but nothing happened. The only thing I saw was "sign up" or something like that at the bottom so I thought I needed to have an account to download anything.

I'll try again in about a half-hour. I'll try temporarily turning off my popup blocker.

sharky couldn't get it to play though:

Win7codecs

which is messed up because i actually have quite a few video files that are like this one. because that's the format one of the posters at a music video site posts his videos.

but it plays without any problem on kmplayer.

Looks like Shark007 has a new challenge in the other thread. I'll sit back and watch what he develops.
