I have been using my WMP for very long time. But recently, I am unable to play some of the mp3s (I can still play most of them) I have which I previously never had issues with.

 

I tried removing any codecs that I installed recently but it didn't work.

 

Any suggestions to how I can work around this? I was thinking of reinstalling WMP but couldn't find a good way to do so. :(

Have you tried VLC instead of using WMP? I think most people prefer third party media players such as VLC unless I am missing something in your post. :)

Either VLC, or SM Player : http://smplayer.sourceforge.net/

 

or...if you want something that will organize all your mp3's.....Music Bee

If you prefer to stick with WMP .....have you tried a system restore ?

Removing codecs was a step backward, IMO.  My experience with WMP is that it doesn't natively have all the varied codecs necessary to play the various assortment of files that one may embrace.

 

FWIW

 

Again...VLC is a better player choice, IMO.

 

The KLite codec pack is one of the more standard codec packages some of us use.

Actually, I've been using Winamp for Audio Music and VLC for Videos... so more choices for you :) http://www.winamp.com/
