I'm still reading some forum notes from others elsewhere as well.

Here's some interesting tidbits:
If I start, run, mplayer2 it runs a different version of media player on my machine, so when i copy and paste the weblink(one that gives me grief), this one also fails and says "Class not registered (Error=80040154)".

Looking this error up shows me that the cause MAY(not for sure though) be a bad codec.

The particular link i am trying is .asx but any wmp file from the internet fails as well so it is not isolated to that. Anyways one post said to try:

regsvr32 /u jscript.dll
regsvr32 jscript.dll
and

regsvr32 vbscript.dll


So those seems to take- no errors from running them, but prob still there. Anyways. That is where we are at. :tazz:

error message has now changed to this:

http://www.microsoft...0D10D1&codec=75


I am unsure how to find the missing codec as it gives no clues. the link is an .asx file so it could be any codecs the link pulls from...

Hi Maceman,


Yes such "warnings" by wmp are useless !!!!

To automatically download codecs from MS, Click on Tools (wmp toolbar) ---> player tab. Check the box next to "Download codecs automatically".

To get info on the codecs used in a file, you will have to refer to the source which is providing the file. If you have access to the file, then you can open it in VLC Media player. Click on View ---> Stream and Media info. The codec details would be listed there.
