I have been having issues with media files from a website. This has happened before and someone recommended the Shark 007 Codec Pack. The problems went away and the codecs are great. Now there is another error and I can't figure out why the files won't open. The website is Prophecyclub.com and the files are in the Audio & Video section. All the audio files in the archive won't open whether I save the file or stream it. I've tried opening with other programs such as quicktime and itunes and they don't work either.

Error message - Windows Media Player C00D11B1

Windows Media Player can't play the file.

Please Help!! :huh:

you could try the roll back to 10 if you are using wmp 11 but i would avoid install speedypc to fix the problem

Is this what you installed? http://shark007.net/win7codecs.html

You can ask here http://www.prophecyclub.com/contact.htm if they support Win7 and WMP 12 ... it could be just a setting.

This is Speedypc, a registry cleaner. Our staff doesn't endorse the use of these programs as the often create more problems than the solve.


Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications. There are a number of them available and some are safer than others. Keep in mind that no two registry cleaners work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad" entry. One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause a problem when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.

The Windows registry <http://www.pcsupportadvisor.com/sasample/E1209.pdf> is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system unbootable.

The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results". Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.

Thanks for all the responses!

My computer plays all other media well. I have plenty of MP3 files and they play fine. The only problems have been with the ones from this website. I use Firefox and Chrome both are the newest ones. I'm not exactly sure what version I use for WMP but I think it's 12. I also think my Quicktime is up to date. I'm not really sure how to check the version. My Itunes is an older edition (not too old, about 2 months). I don't feel the need to update it all the time because there is nothing I need from it that it doesn't do well already.
Sleepwalker, I will not be needing SpeedyPC, but the article is very helpful, thank you very much for sharing it. I may very well need it still to help with configuring settings.

I have sent the website a message. I'll see what they say, this may be a settings issue. I don't know how much they can help me, the site is run on donations. If they can't help me I will try an older version of WMP. If that doesn't help I will try the K-lite codec pack.

I'll post my progress or lack thereof. :huh:
