2.) The error message suggested I click WEB HELP. So I did.
3.) I got Windows Media Player Error Message Help
"You've encountered error message C00D10D1 while using Windows Media Player. The following information might help you troubleshoot the issue.
Codec is missing
Windows Media Player cannot play the file (or cannot play either the audio or video portion of the file) because a required codec is not installed on your computer.
The missing codec might be available to download from the Internet. To search for the codec, go to the WMPlugins.com Web site."
4.) I went to WMPlugins.com web site and got.
"The codec you are missing is not available for download from this site. You might be able to find it on another site by searching the Web for "MP43" (this is the WaveFormat or FourCC identifier of the codec)."
5.) I went to DriverGuide.com. I got mpeg4x.zip. I downloaded and installed this according to the instructions in the READ THIS FIRST file.
6.) This fix works. I can now view the streaming video at the National Zoo site. But WindowsXP SP2 does not like it and spits it out when I shut down my computer and I have to reload it when ever I want to see streaming video at this and other web siteswhich I used to visit with WMP 9.
I have WindowsXP Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 2.
My computer is HP Pavilion Model DB229A-ABA 724C Intel Pentium 4
Windows Media Player Version 10.00.00.3646
I have reloaded the player three times. I have reloaded Direct X as another site suggested. I have downloaded a package of codecs from WMP 7 as suggested by another Micrsoft error message. Still can't get lasting fix.
Does anyone now if Microsoft is going to fix WMP 10 to work at sites where WMP 9 used to work? Does anyone know if there is a more permanent fix I can get? Thank You.
