Windows media player won't play some "Movie Clip" files that I've downloaded. (note I say "some" - I've got other movie clips files that play ok).
What happens is that I double click on the icon and Windows media player opens and then it searches for codecs: "Requesting codec server.... locating codec server" etc and then it says "error downloading codec". But I've downloaded codecs recently.
I also did a Windows media player update, which was nice, but hasn't sorted this problem.
Incidentally if I copy these files to compact disc they play fine in my standalone DVD player on my TV.
Anyway the WMP error centre said this,
C00D11D1: Cannot play the file
Windows Media Player cannot play the file because there might be a problem with the sound or video device, such as a sound or video card.
Your sound or video device might require an updated driver. To determine if an updated driver is available, see the Windows Update page at the Windows Update Web page at the Microsoft Web site, or see the sound or video device manufacturer's Web site.
Error ID = 0xC00D11D1, Condition ID = 0x00000000
Any help would be appreciated.
