View Full Version : Windows Media Player - Gee it's not a race :-(

04-09-2004, 12:12 AM
Some of the MPG files I have when played in Windows Media Player- version 9 run in a very fast forward and only the 1st 40 seconds or so of the movie is played before the slide bar reaches the end. If I stop it and click at any point the movie will jump to that point but then I can only play the next few seconds before it hits the end of the slide bar again.

I guess it is a Codec issue, but how do I find the correct codecs to play the movies correctly?

Most play properly but some are having issues

Win XP Pro

I did download GSPOT as mentioned in a previous thread but this appears only to be for AVI's?
It said the pc has something like 40 video and 28 audio codecs currently loaded.

"Sounds" like a problem I had which was fixed by UNinstall (I think) and fresh download/install
