Can anybody please help me with the following issue?
When playing MPEG files in Windows Media Player 9 (windows XP), wmplayer seems to see the movie as only a minute, for example, despite the size. It plays the MPEG for a minute and then 'skips' through the rest.
Uusually, if I click halfway though the movie, for example, it will play from that point but only for the remainder of the slider i.e. 30 seconds.
I haven’t made any system changes but then again I’m not sure when this started happening. It could have been when installing xvid codecs a month ago.
Any ideas anyone?
I think it was a codec problem. I had to reformat, reinstall etc. for another problem and the same files play fine now. It seemed to affect MPEG 1 files only. I had made a note a few weeks ago as to the fix but I can’t remember if it had worked or if it was the reformat that solved this prob for me...
Start Menu --> Control Panel --> Sound and Audio Devices --> “Hardware” Tab --> Video Codecs
- Delete relevant MPEG codec
- Install new 3rd party MPEG decoder code
Thanks for your help though
