Bing Bang, welcome to MovieCodec.com!
Have you tried installing a newer version of Windows Media Player? If you do so, it might fix the codec errors while installing. At least I think it’s worth a try.
I recently installed a codec pack and couldn’t uninstall it (it was “XP Codec Pack”). Since then I can’t seem to play any wmv files that use codecs such as wmv2, wmv3 and wvc1.
My machine isn’t exactly clean — I’ve installed a few codec packs over the years — but I don’t want to reformat, I just want to get Microsoft files playing for now until I buy my new PC next year.
Can anyone please help me? (I use Media Player Classic by the way.)
