Where to start a thread on compatibility issues with Windows Media Player 12 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have programming that creates WMA files using the Windows Media Encoder SDK.  The files work great under WMP 11, but various file attributes are not appearing in WMP 12.  I started a thread on this in the Windows 7 Media forum on TechNet (http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7itpromedia/thread/a9a266d5-d9b4-4bdc-acef-9325ec673faa/), but was told to start one here on MSDN instead.  Where should that go?

  • Yes, MSDN forum covers most programming questions regarding Microsoft technology. However there is no forum for Windows Meida Format here. I suggest you use the old Windows Media programming newsgroup

  • Hi,

    My question is really about Windows Media Player 12 and WMA file attributes.  From a programming perspective, the technology involved is the Windows Media Encoder SDK, but the problem I have is with file compatibility with the new version of the player -- the album title, etc. on my WMA files are not recognized by Windows Media Player 12 (fine under version 11 and earlier).
