Playing back Recorded TV Programs using Windows Media Player and only hearing Sound from Front Speakers

Hi All,
I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit Service Pack 1 with Windows Media Player 11 installed.
When I click on one of my Recorded TV Programs to watch and hear, I can only hear the Sound coming from the Front Speakers.
When I right-click on the Program and open it up in Real Player Cloud. I can indeed watch the program and hear Clear Sound coming from all 5 Speakers plus the Subwoofer.
What setting do I change to use Windows Media Player and have sound coming from all 5 Speakers and the Subwoofer?
Thank you!

Hi Andreas,
Thanks for the reply.
The link you put up, takes me to the page, but
"The requested URL /surround/www_lynnemusic_com_surround_test.wma was not found on this server."
That was WaterFox.
The webpage cannot be found
This in Internet Explorer 11.0
The Files in question were Recorded by Beyond TV to my Local Hard Drive.
When I open the recording in Real Player Cloud, installed on my computer, not streaming over the Internet, I hear it correctly played.
When I use Windows Media Player, nothing can be heard from the Rear Speakers.
Speakers and Hardware are working fine.

  • Playing music through Air Tunes using Windows Media Player

    Hello to all.
    I am planning on buying the Air Port Express so I can play music wirelessly from my Dell. The only problem I have with is that I can't use the keyboard media buttons (play/pause, stop, next, previous) with iTunes. These buttons work with Windows Media Player, so I was hoping that I could use WMP instead of iTunes. Can this work? Or, is there a way to make the buttons work with iTunes?
    Thanks a ton.

    Don't know about doing this in windows, but on a Mac you can re-map the keys for those commands to different keys on the keyboard. Or perhaps it would be better to say that you can map ADDITIONAL keys to those commands. There should be something to allow you to do the same thing in Windows.
    Good luck!

  • Cannot view or play audio or video coded for windows media player, and do not see javascript

    I designed a website that uses a little bit of JavaScript. It displays fine in IE (9), but not in Firefox. Does anyone know why, and what the fix is?
    Also, and more importantly, I coded audio and video files with Windows media player's class id. They will not show or (obviously) play in Firefox. I downloaded and installed the plug in for Firefox, but no change. I'm sure I'm not the only one to have run across this problem, and I'm surprised that Mozilla hasn't built a fix in the 4.0 version. So, any ideas out there?

    Firefox won't play the media file if there is a classid specified in the object tag. You either need to use conditional code to hide an object without classid for Firefoz from IE or use an embed for Firefox.
    <pre><nowiki><object id="(ID)" type="application/x-oleobject" classid="CLSID:6BF52A52-394A-11d3-B153-00C04F79FAA6">
    <param name="(NAME)" value="(VALUE)> // enter parameters for IE here
    <!--[if !IE]>-->
    <object data="(SOURCE)" type="application/x-mplayer2" height="xxx" width="xxx">
    <param name="(NAME)" value="(VALUE)"> // enter parameters for Firefox here

  • How to view live webcam that use windows media player and java

    I am new to iphone and I have two live webcams that I like to go to and can't get either one on my iphone 3gs., view live webcam link and live webcam link. How can I get to them?? oram I just out of luck.

    You've got to remember that, as powerful as the iPhone is, it's not a desktop computer. So certain things that have been designed for desktop computers may not work the same or at all. The owners of those websites probably never considered anyone wanting to view them on a phone.
    The first webcam you can view on your iPhone by going to and manually refreshing the page to update the view. (The Java applet just refreshes the page, something they could easily have done in JavaScript for increased compatibility).
    The second one I can't help with, as that one doesn't even work on my desktop computer, but WMV is a proprietary video format from Microsoft, which the iPhone doesn't play. You'd have to ask the website owners to use a more industry standard video format that the iPhone can play.

  • CS4 using a Mac and want to play video using windows media player

    Hi I am having issues with file types to play video back using Windows media player.
    I am producing video using Premiere CS4 on a Mac and I need to know what format to use to have the files play in windows media player as .mp4 is not compatable with wm player.

    I have Windows Media Player installed on my PC workstation and I do remember installing a codec so that MP4 files could play in WMPlayer 11 on Windows Vista 64-bit (should work on 32-bit also)
    look near the bottom section of this link for further information.  The codec is called DirectShow
    Otherwise if you're posting videos on a webpage for example in the mp4 format use the Quicktime html wrapper so that people using Mac's can also view your videos that are encoded for PC's.  If you encode in wmv format (Windows Media Video) then provide a link to the "Flip4Mac" application that can use Quicktime on the Mac to play Windows Media Files.  I think you can find it on .

  • Why are my .avi files extracted using PE3 only playing audio when using Windows Media Player?

    I extracted a lot of my old movies using PE3 that came from my 8MM camera. They played fine on XP.
    I now have Windows7 64 bit and when I play them in Windows Media Player, they only play the sound.
    I'm guessing that this is a codec issue.
    Should I re-extract them using a different product that uses a more standard codec?

    It depends on your workflow. So we'll need more details.
    How did you digitize the video from your 8mm camcorder? Many devices capture as AVIs, but do so while using codecs that aren't universally playable.  Also, do make sure you've got the latest version of Quicktime on your new computer. It can add some important video functionality to your computer.
    You say you used Premiere Elements to "extract" your movie. How did you do this? Did you use a device like the ADS Pyro AV Link or Grass Valley Canopus AVDC?
    Finally, are you trying to play the raw files or did you create a project with them in Premiere Elements and then Export/Share your video? And, if the latter, which output settings did you choose?
    Meantime, try downloading VLC Player to your new computer and see if it can play the files. It is a much better player than Windows Media Player (or Quicktime Player, for that matter). And let us know yoru results.
    As I've said, the more details you can give us, the more likely we can help you.

  • What output formats support the play speed settings on a PC using windows media player?

    What output formats support the play speed settings on a PC using windows media player?
    Here is my need. I need to take my video clips with me on my small PC and view them at slow speed. My playback PC is small and a little slow, so I cant have a very high bitrate. It uses an ATOM processor. It uses windows media player. I noticed the slow playback option is available in some formats when opened with windows media player, other formats--feature not available. What are the best output settings to save my clips on my small PC?

    Just to add a few details:
    As stated, WMP 11.0.5xxx
    OS = XP-Pro SP3
    Intel Core2 Quad 2.66GHz
    RAM = 4GB
    Graphics chip = nVidia GeForce 8800M (recent, but not latest nVidia driver)
    I/O = 3x SATA II 7200 RPM 250GB
    Virtual Memory = Static 10GB on D:\
    WMV's play pretty well in both Slo-Mo and at about 2-3x speed

  • Cannot listen to online radio streaming using Windows Media Player

    Online radio websites that use Windows Media Player - opens up the player in new window but instead of buffering, says that it is playing but no output/sound. Definitely not security/pop up/firewall issue. Windows Media Player works fine playing CDs etc.

    Hi there,
    so, you definitively have a machine whichs plays sound and you can establish a internetconnection. I think its a pure mediaplayer problem (softwareproblem).
    You have the following options:
    1. Reinstall your mediaplayer or update it.
    2. install another mediaplayer software like winamp or some other jukebox
    3. further options
    Give some feedback, so I can maybe help you with your problem. ;)

  • View IPTV using Windows Media Player

    I have a customer who does not want to install Cisco's IPTV viewer on their clients PCs. They would prefer to use Windows Media Player to view both scheduled and VoD streams from their 3427 Broadcast Servers. Is this possible and if so how is it done?

    Couple of things. If you want to stay away from the installed program, you can use the IPTV plugin, which works fine.
    Also, the latest versions of IPTV (I think beginning with 5.1) support the Apple Darwin (QT Streaming server) which will allow you to use the QuickTime plugin for the browser for streaming support and is also free.
    If you absolutely must use Windows Media, you can do that through the integrated ACNS/IPTV package, but that's not, let's say, fully baked yet.

  • Rendering from AECS5 (Mac) for someone using Windows Media Player 11?

    Does anyone know if it's possible, and if so what settings, I could render out of AECS5 on a Mac to a format someone using Window Media Player 11 in Windows XP so they could view the file?
    They are unable to install any other software or codecs other than what comes stock with the XP install.
    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    MPEG-2 should work. If you include audio, you will get a .mpg file which WMP should play.
    Edit: Sorry, I am wrong about that; they would need to have a DVD decoder pack installed which apparently doesn't come standard.
    Here are two links that don't have an answer, but have info about the problem: a.html

  • Having trouble using windows media player in a browser

    Everytime I try to open streaming video in Safari I get an error message, sometimes I get "Cannot open the file. Verify that the path and filename are correct and try again" and sometimes "error creating unique tmp file". I have installed wmp I don't know how many times but I just can't get rid of this. I tryed this in my friend's mac and it worked fine but mine is giving me trouble. I have also tryed this in other browsers like Omniweb, firefox and even Internet explorer (internut exploder), what can I do?

    I do not know why it works on one Mac and not another. From a Microsoft Bulletin:
    Playing protected files
    Content providers can protect Windows Media files from unauthorized playback by using a technology called digital rights management (DRM). A Windows Media file that has been assigned digital rights is called a "protected file."
    To play a protected file, you must obtain a license (a kind of electronic key) from the content provider. In many cases, the Player can acquire a license for you automatically when you attempt to play the file. In other cases, the content provider may not issue you a license until you pay a fee or provide additional information.
    Although it is usually possible to play protected files by using Windows Media Player 9 Series for Mac OS X, in some cases you may encounter one of the following issues:
    * The Player displays the error message "Cannot open the file. Verify that the path and file name are correct and try again." In this case, verifying the path and file name will not solve the problem.
    * A Web page is displayed that informs you that you should upgrade to a newer version of the Player. In this case, you already have the latest version of Windows Media Player for Mac OS X, so upgrading will not solve the problem.
    In both cases, there is no way to resolve the issue, and you won't be able to play the file.
    However, I have sometimes been able to extract the url for the media file from the page source and put it directly into WMP and then been able to listen to it.

  • Problem in stretching video using windows media player control

    I am using windows media player 9 and set the stretchtofit property to true.But when I play a video of size 256X192 on a window media control player whose width and height is set to 640 and 384 respectively I find black areas on left and right side of video.My system has windows 2000 and is set to 1280X720 resolution.I am using labview 7.0.
    If anybody encountered the same problem or any suggestion please help to solve the problem.

    Are you sure that this property means that the image is "stretched"? It might mean that if the video size is X and the control's size is 2X, the picture will be stretched to fit the control without losing the aspect ratio. I know that the regular WMP does not stretch images. You can easily test this by playing a file smaller than the control and setting the property to F. You can also search google\Microsoft for the WMP SDK.

  • .mp4 video's audio won't play on Firefox, even with Microsoft Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin

    Title says it all: trying to play any .mp4 video files, or anything that utilizes .mp4 files period, will have the video play just fine, but with absolutely no audio at all. I run a Windows 7 Home Premium, and have tested several sites that utilize .mp4 video files, and have tested it on Internet Explorer, with Explorer showing better results at playing both the audio and video.
    I have checked to see if is true in the about:config menu, and restarted Firefox, but to no avail. Any ideas as to what could be the root of this problem?

    Hi Soundless_Cyborg,
    Can you please specify an example url where this is happening, sometimes the video player does not support the codec.
    Maybe you need to set it as default for this file type:
    Open Control Panel > Programs > Default Programs > Set your default programs > Select Windows Media Player from the lists under Programs > Set this program as default > OK
