Error in Audio Compression Codec

posted in Audio Codecs

HI guys,

Need some help, Big time!!
I Seem to be facing a strange problem on my win me laptop.

There is no Playback when I play any music(in win amp/real/windowmedia player) or the default sounds from the sounds and multimedia.

However when I run the Dx diag, All the test run sucessfully and I am able to hear a faint sound in the relevant pages.

In the Sound and Multimedia setting in the control panel The Video Compression codecs and the Audio Compression codec are showing a Red symbol in front of them on the devices page.

The sound card installed on the system is Realtek AC97, and audio and video drivers installed are as follows

Video Compressors:

I am having the same problem on an ME system with the same AC97 chip. I hope someone can solve this for us. reply


Hey there I had the same problem,
For MCE install Showshifeter trial version. It installs a codec for MCE that enables sound for live TV and DVD playback from within MCE.
My problem now is that I get a slpit second pause every 20-30 seconds in the sound from MCE when playing DVD’s reply
