I am using y2k with sp4 and IE6.Suddenly when I try to play my video files using Media player Classic the following message comes up.
Program Error
mplayerc.exe has generated errors and will be closed by windows.You will need to restart the program.An error log is being created.'
I was using this player for some time without any trouble.Restarting the same is not helping as it re appears.The same message also appears when I try to run other utilities also like Free Easy Burner.
How can I get rid of this problem?Please help me urgently.

Have you run a virus scan. Do you run anti-virus software. Have you installed any dodgy codecs recently???

One way you might be able to repair your folder structure/file integrety is to run a checkdisk also called a file check on that partition/disk. I cannot quite remember if it's run the same way as on xp, but try right-click drive and then select properties. See if you can find it there. Look for tools, something. Run it on the root drive and reboot when required.
Do not try to scan and recover bad sectors.

It sometimes does a good job of cleaning up.

Good luck. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the help.I tried it and it has partially solved the problem.It still persists with my media player classic as 'mplayerc.exe has generated errors'.
Should I get rid of the program as it is a part of the video codec pack.

Glad it's somewhat sorted. :huh:

About you media player. This one has it's own build-in codec pack and supports a vide variety of formats.
Including DVD formats.
It's free.
You could try that out -
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
It's my main player.

I think you can leave MP classic be, but if you insist on keeping that as you main player, you might try a uninstall/reinstall.

Hope that's some help. :thumbsup:

and hello again to you sir. :huh:

I'm not to knowledgeble on that subject, sorry. But I can try give you a few hints.
Have you got the burn program Nero?
With that it should be pretty straight forward. You Insert a cd in your burner and fire up Nero. Nero will allow you to select between a number of different types of burns. One such category should be called something in the equalence of video/pictures. When you press that, you get the option to burn a Video CD or Super Video CD.
Then you just need to let Nero guide you on your way. When you need, you browse your harddisk and find the file you want Nero to burn. Nero should then start a conversion process, that might take a while, to change the file into a format that's suitable as a vcd-file. Then Nero would be ready for the burn.
You should not burn the files as data, but instead you do like I described.
If if you get an error with Nero, that it can not convert the file, you need another 3rd party piece of software to do the conversion for you. Tmpgenc would be a good choice. Tmpgenc Express is easier manageble. You'll have to figure it out yourself. Google with care, there are so many good sites/guides out there.
One such might be -

Hope that could get you started and good luck mate. :thumbsup:
