Window Media Player problem with codec RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to play a video but I'm getting this error message "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file."

    What can I do to fix the problem?

  • Hello,

    The Windows Desktop Perfmon and Diagnostic tools forum is to discuss performance monitor (perfmon), resource monitor (resmon), and task manager, focusing on HOW-TO, Errors/Problems, and usage scenarios.

    As the question is off topic here, I am moving it to the Where is the Forum... forum.
