Win Media Player problems

I just installed a new version of Windows Media Player on my new computer.

I try to play whatever video files that i download from Kazaa and I would say that WMP can play about 50-60% of them.

Mostly, I see that the player is attempting to download the codec- reports an error- and then plays the audio only.

This seems to be happening WAY TOO often to make sense. I looked throughout the file menus and can't find any preferences or update to get the required codecs. I'm getting pissed.

Any ideas?

Use videolan.

Thanks hunting:

I installed it and it plays ALL my media files, not like Win Media Player.

Good call!

thanks

Also, try AVIcodec for any files that you aren't sure what codec you need.
