hey

I am having a problem with WMP10 and WMP11 (the problem occurs no matter which version i install)...

If I open a media file (video, audio, doesnt matter), the sound is extremely quiet... then if I click anywhere on the seek bar, the volume jumps up tremendously... then if i hit play/pause, or if the media file ends and a new one begins, the sound goes back to being very quiet...

this is a new problem... does anyone know what is happening here?

I had a similar problem with WMP 10 however I re-installed WMP 10 and it sorted it out, however I then installed Media Classic Player from here:

Since doing that - no problems! Alternatively have a look here

If all else fails, hit the reset button.

well, i tried all those suggestions, including the codec suggestions from that last link that FireKracker sent, and none of them worked... so i just picked an arbitrary restore point that was well before i had problems with WMP, and now it works fine...

so, i guess if anyone else has that same problem, try restoring the system to an earlier point.
