Freakin' Bill Gates! I'm trying to watch some videos from a fight sight on WMP.

All I get is an error message of C00D11CD.

Any ideas?

Go here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download/default.asp and download the latest player for your OS. It's most likely just a codec issue. This will get you up to date.

I got the latest WMP 10 and sometimes it wont play certain videos (back when I didnt have K-lite codec pack), Id suggest maybe trying to use DIVX player if it doesnt work for you.

DIVX

Kyo, I downloaded 9 again and same thing. 10 only works on XP. I have 2k

Try downloading the K-lite codec pack, thats what I've been usin when Windows media gets all messed up. It has all the codecs for most videos and should work.
http://files.filefront.com/klite_codec_pack/;2234821;;/fileinfo.html thats what my friends and me are usin to play videos nowadays. Don't install the crappy player they got in the kodec pack, Just install the codecs and your windows media should read almost all videos.

Thats wierd, what was the format of the file you were trying to play? It just might be the video files it self. Unless any of us can play it.

I wonder if it's related to the AV update problem you have. I agree with the codec updates but there's another root problem here. I take it that these are the only files you've had problems with lately?

Same thing on yours. I haven't had this problem before this.

Couple suggestions: try Real Player instead.
Just watched YouthKnife and Sucker Punch from that link above.

Any time I can bypass Bill Gates, I do.

I would also suggest switching from Internet Explorer to Mozilla Firefox.

I got an error message on that one as well, and I am running XP with the SP2 upgrade.

A few comments:

The error your getting is an unknown error message as the computer is not sure what is the problem.

All of their videos are WMV files except one AVI file. The DIVX problem mentioned earlier is not the issue as they are WMV files.

I'm not a video guru, but I don't believe that WMV's can played in Real Player...similiar to .ra files can't be played in Windows Media player.

I'd still change to Firefox, but that is not likely your issue with Internet Explorer. If it is an IE related issue it's the media bar that the newer IE versions try to use. Try this if you think it's the media bar in IE giving you the problem...

-Right click on the movie you want to watch and "Save target as"
-Select someplace on your computer to doanload to
-Close all Internet Explorer windows you have open
-Locate the file on your computer
-Try to Play the file


Are you having any other issues with your computer that may give us a hint?

This is something I've run into in the past but not too much lately. I downloaded the file, imported into Adobe After Effects and saved it with no compression, maximum detail. My guess is that they made the movies with an off the wall shareware app or something like that. I've had the problem in the past when I used shareware apps to do movies.

Works fine for me. Have yall upgraded to windows media player 10?

Ah to hell with it. BTW, that second vid you showed of "knife". The black guy has obviously been around the block a time or two. He is also very lucky the bobbie showed when he did.

Good training film.

WOW !!
There's hope for you yet :D :D
Next I'll have you upgrading to LINUX !!

Really though, you do need to dump IE and load Mozilla Firefox.

Quote from Business Week article "Recently network security experts saw
one of their worst fears realized. Attackers exploited a pair of known but
unpatched flaws in Microsoft's Web server software and Internet Explorer browser to compromise seemingly safe Web sites. People who browsed there
on Windows computers got infected with malicious code without downloading
anything."

Mozilla Firefox, which can be installed or download from here:
http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/

Well it sort of works. If I download them to my hard drive. But then it also works in WMP. Damn you Bill Gates! Damn you!

Sounds like you, TR, and Joe have same problem from the error I mentioned in an earlier post here...try the below technique if you still want to use IE:

Internet Explorer has its own player for the Media Bar. To get around the c00d11cd error being generated you need to turn the Media Bar off. To disable Internet Explorer's (version 6) Media Bar click the Media button on the main Toolbar, then click "Media Options" in the new pane that opens. Now select "settings", and then uncheck "Play web media in the bar".

The reason I tell you this is because some WMV files you may come across may be prevented from the host for direct downloads and only streamed to you.

P.S. You can still use an alternative browser like Firefox to get around this too

Nice. I hate realplayer because it tries to advertise too much. Firefox is a DAMN good browser. I'd go with windows media player 10 over realplayer any day (except if you HAVE to be able to watch .ram's).

Also for you Firefox users:

Downloading that allows you to right click a page and get Google's cache of it. Very handy if you need to view material that was pulled offline for any reason.

Cool feature, thanks for the tip. I was reading a Yahoo News story about the SEALs prisoner pictures. The article said that reporters were able to download the pictures from Google's cache. I believe they eventually password protected the wife's pictures.

There's another cool thing. If your in the tabs and you highlight a word or name, then right click it, it gives you the option of running a search for that word in Google from there - it opens in another tab so you don't lose your original place.

This is a great browser.
