i am receiving an error when trying to open many of my media files with windows media player 10. the error is:
“windows media player cannot play the file. The player might no support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file”. these files i cannot open
there are some that i can open, but when I try to open some files they will play a different file: for example, I will open an audiobook and one of music files will start to play.
Im asking for audio/video help, but in actuality I have pdf’s that give me the same error about not able to recognize extension, possibly due to decompression method.
Any one familiar with any of this?
