Certain Videos Are Not Playing In Windows Media Player?

by Rohit Khurana on January 26, 2012


Windows Media Player has evolved a lot with the newer version of Windows like Windows 8 and Windows 7, but still it does not support some of the video formats. Since there are a large numbers of Video formats and they are not all supported, there are codec packs available one of them being K Lite Mega Codec Pack. But the problem arises when one or more of these codecs go bad or corrupt. One of the easiest way out is to use a freeware program like VLC Player which can play it all, but not all like its interface and it does not provide all the features and aesthetics of Windows Media Player. For such situations, there is a tool called the Codec Tweak Tool which fixes most of the bad or corrupt codes in Windows.

Nice tool, but does it say if codecs are broken and needs to be repaired, or it is up the user to try fix even not sure if codecs are broken?

Been using KLite for years love it, however for some reason I was having problems with I file forget the name but playback was static tried fast forward same problem uninstalled and reinstalled same problem I then tried another codec pack I used to use Shark007 and it played no problem. Will try KLite again sometime to see if things are better with the new release.
