Trouble with Windows Media Player Plug-in

I've been having a very annoying trouble lately. I can't play any windows media streams even though I have windows media player 9 installed. I reinstalled it but still nothing. Has someone else had this problem? Do I need to install something else? What do you recommend me?

It allows WMP playback (most files) via QuickTime Player or its browser plug-in.
You'll need to use Rosetta to use WMP as it is over three years old and will never be made Universal.

  • Windows Media Player plug-in issues - Safari 4.0.5 on Windows 7

    Hi guys,
    I just did a fresh install of Windows 7 and of course the page to chose a browser popped up. Glad to see my beloved Safari browser to be available I installed it. Of course not all was running smoothly but after the 'mandatory' flash, Windows Media Player and QuickTime plug in I assumed all media content should run perfect in Safari.
    Unfortunately not for WMV files. I get the 'Safari can't find the internetplugin, MIME-type application/x-mplayer2'error message.
    I looked the issue up on the web of course and found out the trouble that Safari had with WMV streaming. What struck me is that this is a Mac only problem I believe (Flip4Mac solution). As I am running Windows 7 I was quite sure that Safari should be able to stream and play WMV files in the browser.
    So I removed and installed the Windows Media Player plug-in again ( but to no avail. I then removed Safari and installed it again, still same problem. I tried the Fire-Fox plug in, no solution.
    It really drives me nuts to open IE8 only to play some WMV files in the browser. I hope someone can shed some light on this issue.
    Strange thing I noticed: I can't see how I can manage my plug-ins. There seems to be no tab for it in the Safari settings and in the program-files folder I can only find Java.
    Thank you so much for your time and effort.

    I looked up the internet but can't find anything on this. As no replies here too I guess I'm the only one. The other thing that struck me is the enormous CPU usage when playing flash in the browser. Up to 95%-100% cpu usage when playing HD flash content. First I assumed it was a Flash issue but Internet Explorer never used more then 35%-55%. I then assumed it was just Flash in Safari. Strange thing is, if I maximize the window the cpu load actually drops to 55%. I only get high cpu usage when flash is played in the Safari window. I guess that means it's something to do with the browser and not an isolated flash 'bug'.
    Also still no luck playing WMV in the browser itself. Maybe time to look for yet another browser. A shame as I like the Safari browser a lot. MobileMe and iPhone are great to sync bookmarks and the look and feel is great. The engine is not so good unfortunately.

  • Since I updated to firefox 5.0, the windows media player plug in for firefox doesnt work anymore :(

    Ok I recently upgraded to firefox 5.0, and then when I went to a website that uses windows media player to watch videos and news reports, it said I needed to download the windows media player plug in for firefox. And yet I had already done that in the past. So it directs me to the plug in for windows media player 11, I download and install and it doesnt work. Website repeats the same message, you need to download plug in. It was working fine with firefox 4.0! I use the OS Windows 7, 64bit. Any help please?

    Yes I did, at first it identified it as already there, so it gave the option of repairing it, etc, so I uninstalled the Windows Media Player, then Installed it again, and it still doesn't seem to work! I have the same problem with several other plug ins, in the add ons and plug in section of Mozilla tools, I see that say, "incompatible with firefox 5.0" but as days go by those add-ons, that are built by those other websites seem to be repairing it, but I wanted to know for something as important as windows media player plug in, am I the only one getting this problem? :/

  • Creative Zen V Plus won't sync with Windows Media Player 11?

    My Zen V Plus won't synchronize with Windows Media Player . I plug it into the USB, then an error message pops up in WMP that says "WMP has encountered a problem and needs to close" but if I just move the window aside WMP works fine. I then click 'sync" and it says "preparing to sync" but doesnt move beyond that. I have synced with WMP before, this problem has recently started occurring. I have all the firmware updates on my player, I don't know what is causing this problem.

  • While installing a program (MediaCenter.exe) to handle audiobooks from the library, I erroneously associated the download site with Windows Media Player instead of the actual application (NetLibrary Media Center). How can I reverse/change this?

    While installing a program (MediaCenter.exe) to handle audiobooks from the library, I erroneously associated the download site with Windows Media Player instead of the actual application (NetLibrary Media Center). How can I reverse/change this? Reinstalling the application does not clear the error, so I'm assuming the association is somewhere in Firefox.

    Never mind -- I just found it under Tools/Options.../Applications, where I changed the incorrect association of "nlmcp" from Windows Media Player to the correct one, NetLibrary Media Center. Done!

  • Problem with Windows Media Player since installing Firefox 4.0

    Problems with Window Media Player. When I am using Windows Media Player to view a video from another source I am having problems. When I hit pause and then go back to hit play it does not have any sound. The player is not on mute and it keeps going from pause to play with no sound most times. Please help. Thank-you. I have Windows Vista programs.

    What can I do to get the Windows Media Player to work properly?

  • Problem with Windows Media Player -- saving, transferring

    Operating system:   Windows 7 Home Premium       
    Product: HP Pavilion P6000 Series
    Windows Media Player
    Copy short videos onto a thumbnail drive from a different computer running Windows 7 with Windows Media Player.    Thumbnail drive accepts files, lists and can play back fine on same computer.    Take thumbnail drive to different computer also running/using Windows Media Player & Windows 7, and playback only plays back audio -- no picture.  What am I doing wrong? 

    As WMP is not a DVD player, my suggestion would be to tell your clients to never use WMP.All our DVD discs go out with a warning not to allow WMP to be used.
    In most computer setups, WMP does not play back video correctly as it does not have an MPEG codec installed, or has navigational problems.
    All computers that have a DVD drive fitted, will have a dedicated DVD software player installed, such as Win DVD or Power DVD, so why not use that?

  • Safari with Windows Media Player cannot use PHP as filename/src/url

    I'm running Windows XP Pro SP2 with Windows Media Player 11
    and Safari 3 public beta. In addition to being the absolute
    slowest browser among MSIE, Firefox, Netscape, and Opera, the
    Safari browser has two annoying WMP defects.
    1) Even with WMP 11 installed, the code below for embedding
    can use either the classid for WMP v6.4 or v7+ but Safari
    (or rather it's plugin) always displays a v6.4 looking UI.
    All other browsers display the media player using the v11 UI
    2) Safari will not download the movie if the "filename" param
    is a web url (e.g. getmovie.php?select=1234 ) rather than the
    precise name of the movie file itself (e.g. "movie.wmv"). The
    other browsers may differ in use of the param name="xxxx", where
    xxxx is "filename" or "src" or "url" or "data" ... but Safari
    will not work using any of these.
    Has anyone successfully embedded a WMP object that uses the
    URL as a PHP page (or other server-side script) ? I have already
    my server-side PHP code that works perfectly for MSIE, Firefox,
    Netscape, and opera. Safari is the only problem browser.

    codebase=" #Version=6,4,5,715"
    standby="Loading Microsoft Windows Media Player components...">
    <param name="url" value="">
    <!-- For other browsers * Windows Media Player -->
    <!--[if !IE]> <-->
    <object type="application/x-mplayer2" height="300" width="300">
    <param name="filename" value="">
    <!--> <![endif]-->

    I have run into several issues pointing to what you are describing...
    I fixed my Safari by installing the WMP plugin. I am able to view visualizations embedded into a webpage, one of which I created...I am able to view videos and so on.. Before I installed the plugin, All that would load is a place holder which looked like the old WMP and would not function properly. However this is what is displayed beside the media which is embedded.
    I think that I got the plugin by going to the download page for Safari and looking for plugins. Funny thing was that the plugin that I installed was the one for Firefox on its site that nobody every installs because Firefox gets the plugin if you already have WMP11 installed. Anyway this should solve your problem...with most..
    I have noticed just now that PHP served links or applications which launch in their own window and are protected by PHP script do work but still display a lack of functionality showing the Version 6.4 that you are speaking of. I checked it out using the KDGE Live Stream which opens another window, and displays version 11 properly ( in other browsers ), the link which is served is also protected and will close any media player that tries to play it on its own. It soley depends on the script which is coded into the page or window for the player. I can see this method as useful for a corporation as large and well advertised as ClearChannel Productions, because of the lack of bandwidth and cost to the company. Several sources do this and it winds up being an issue for the website administrator and designers to take care of, or update the script, or the person who has written the plugin, which could be from a number of resource; this particular instance would be the author of the WMP Plugin for Firefox.
    For any other purpose though the plugin I mentioned above should get rid of ( MOST ) of that problem.

    This is also a good link for sources and coding issues when embedding WMP.. Hope some of this helps..

  • XM Radio Help With Windows Media Player

    Does anyone know how to get XM Radio to work within Safari? The Windows Media Player plug-in tries to connect but never does. I tried the Flip4Mac plug-in and got the same non-result.
    I got the AOL radio player to work but it does not offer all of the XM channels.
    Quick Silver   Mac OS X (10.4.4)  

    Well, I just signed up for a 3 day trial at XM and listened to a couple of songs through Safari. I'm not certain which version of Windows Media Player you have installed. If you don't have version 9 then head over to Microsoft and download it. If you do have try re-installing it and see if that helps.

  • Content Engine compatability with Windows Media Player

    I am currently running ACNS version 5.5 on our CE510 Content Engine. We want to set this box up to serve VOD requests from WMT. I think the clients on site are all using Windows Media Player version 10. Does this version of ACNS software work with Windows Media Player 10?

    this brings up an interesting point. The content (which is canned Video on an Intranet Web site) is HTTP? I am wasting my time here by trying to use the Windows MP services?? Perhaps I already have what I need...
    Your comments appreciated.

    I have a similar problem, which is that I want a Windows user to be able to view my iMovie file using Windows Media Player. I have Flip4Mac on my Mac but isn't that for converting the other way around - for viewing a Windows Media Player file on a Mac?
    Sorry, I see that there is a Studio version that allows conversion to wmv - I only had the free basic version for Flip4Mac - should have looked more closely at the website!
