Audio / Video playback issues in WMP 11

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Music, Pictures and Video' started by Zack Whittaker, Jun 1, 2006.

  1. Well, not sure if this'll work or not - try downloading Windows Media Player
    11 from the download site and overwriting it. It's a longshot and not sure
    if it'll work - but it might do :eek:)

  2. Actually I've just checked... it's worthless and won't work :eek:( Sorry.
    The best bet I think... is either posting a screenshot of the error, or
    reinstalling Vista? :eek:(

    Hi there,

    I just installed Beta 2 of Vista and am having difficulties playing
    media in it. Unfortunately I cannot play audio or video. A message is
    displayed informing me that the it may be due to an error occuring in
    another component that is not capable of informing WMP correctly (It's a bit
    of a mouthful).

    Anyway, has anyone else experienced this? The only thing I can think of
    is that my sound card is not installed, but surely video should still
    playback okay?

    If the *exact* message is needed I'll log onto Vista again and write it
    down. Thanks loads in advance.

    Nick.

    I had a similiar issue with WMP11 playing back the video, but with no audio
    and playing back the video at 10x normal speed.

    I suspected it may have something to do with my audio driver (onboard audio
    on Intel motherboard) and so plugged in some USB speakers I had. And sure
    enough the video plays back with audio and at normal 1x speed.

    I've logged a bug on this.

    Cheers
