    Does windows media player have a cache files folder? Where is the cache
    files folder located for windows media player? Or how do I find the cache
    files folder for windows media player?

    Thank You for your Help.


    Background info: I have a desktop AMD 4400+ 64X2 4GB memory 320GB HD(way
    bigger than I need) Acer computer (AM3100-U3201A) I purchased new February
    2008 running 32-bit MS Vista Home Premium SP2 box. I use MS auto updates.
    I think it has onboard shared memory for video and sound. My ISP is Comcast
    12mbps with Motorola SURFboard SB5101 Cable Modem direct to computer. No
    other switches or routers or wireless or phone line or any other networking
    hardware hooked up to this computer.

    I found:
    C:\Users\Bob1\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Media\11.0
    Inside are two files "WMSDKNS.DTD" and "WMSDKNS.XML"
    This does not seem like cache. Maybe windows media player does not have
    Thanks again.

    I need to rephrase the question. I copy and paste a link (mms:// and
    others) into the player. I want to look for and save the file so I do not
    have to stream it form the Internet any more. Some of those links are
    getting old and I fear will be gone soon.

    Oh, you're probably talking about the browser cache (Temporary Internet
    Files) and not about WMP's library cache. mms:// links point to
    streaming video, and they aren't saved locally, not even in the browser
    cache. To record such streamed videos, you need a special program like
    WM Recorder - http://www.wmrecorder.com
