Need fix for Vista WMP 11 similar to fix for XP WMP 11

Discussion in 'Windows Media Player' started by Bob Wisconsin, Oct 10, 2007.

  1. See article ID 931756 named "Fix: Content plays longer than the time that is
    specified by the duration element in a Windows Media Player 11 playlist for
    content that is 30 minutes or more"

    While my application uses WMP 11 on my XP machines to locate specific clips
    in video recordings (all of which are over 30 minutes in duration), when I
    put this application on my new Vista, the aproximate seeking does not
    accurately locate the clip. Comparing two machines on the same recording
    shows the time elapsed measure is going faster to the point that, like the
    problem identified in article 931756 the duration will exceed the recording
    length also identified in the WMP11 display.

    Does anyone know how to fix WMP11's use of time in Vista so that time
    provides a precise location on the recording instead of the "aproximate seek"?

    I thought I answered this exact question elsewhere?

    What exact playback context are you getting this in? Generally this won't
    happen on Vista.

    Does the latest cumulative WMP update fix this? I don't recall the KB right
    now, but it looks you're familiar with those anyways. At the top of my FAQ
    is a link to the general query if you're lazy like I am.

    Does the Cumulative WMP Update for Vista that was released on the 6th cover
    this for you or not?
