Hi there.

I have a problem with windows media player 10. When i play any video file it tries to download a codec but says there is an error and therefore there is no sound, only picture. When trying to play sound files it just keeps repeatedly changing tracks as it fails to play each song.

I can watch films and hear sound ok in other programs - eg. divx player, so im guessing it's a problem with WMP 10.

I have tried reinstalling WMP with no success. Is there a default audio codec that i can download and install?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks

Download this program called g-spot get it here http://www.headbands...ot/gspot221.exe

run the tool and locate the Video file in question , now you stated that you had video but no sound, so once the file is loaded in g-spot it will tell you more than you need to know about that file including what sound codec that you need to have.

with that info you can than find the correct codec http://www.afterdawn.com/software/
Im thinking it may be the AC3 audio but Chk it out in gspot and see.
