Corrupted Media Player - How do i repair???

R

Rohit

#1
I have installed windows vista ultimate and things were going fine
until yesterday when i tried to play a streaming video that uses
windows media player activex control (using IE7). For some reason when
i try to play any webcast that uses windows media player i see a cross
in the player frame. I can not play any video online and IE does not
care to tell me whats wrong?
I do not login as administrator until unless required and i was
wondering what could have happened to make the media player or prolly
IE7 in a bad state?

I tried searching on the web but i could not find any way to repair or
reinstall windows media player on vista. Appreciate your help.

Regards
rohit

Any error? How about at eventvwr.msc in run box>enter>click applicaitons
scroll down to time of problem or WMP as source and do same for system.

Did you try a system restore to when things were find (use several points
if necessary)?

If you're using RC2 the beta codec package has expired.

I don't see any error pertaining to Media Player but i did see an entry for
"wmpnetsvc" with some error code. I am currently away from my computer and
can not post the error code very now. I remember i could not search any value
for the error code. Could this be the problem? i remember yesterday i could
not start this service. The service stops the moment it starts logging in
this error code.

I will post the trace in a short while. Thanks for the reply.

Hi Dennis,

I got the pre-released vista from MSDN universal subscription. i suppose
that is not the problem. I could view videos hosted on channel9 etc 2-3 days
back without any problem and i don't remember doing anything nasty on the dev
machine.

Rohit--

This doesn't sound like then, any special codec problem. It may not help,
but won't hurt so run sfc /scannow from an elevated cmd prompt and see if
there's any joy.

I should add, that in the absense of error messages which can be very
helpful with WMP, in XP I could often fix things by reinstalling WMP. Vista
hoever, won't let you do that--it'll tell you it's there already.

So it means if by some chance if media player is corrupted there is no way to
reinstall or atleast repair it... If this is the case I am sure no one would
like to install vista. I can't believe that there is no way to repair windows
media player

Rohit--

One of my favorite sources for Windows media on all fronts, and WMP error
interpretation is Chris Lanier (MSFT MVP's) blog:

http://msmvps.com/blogs/chrisl/pages/11278.aspx

Sometimes, the errors have laser specific solutions, but often times they
don't.

Guide To Error 8007007E In Windows Media Player
Error 8007007E or "Module not found" means something in the playback chain
isn't fully installed. It is most likely not WMP, but something like a
sound card driver. http://www.zachd.com/pss/pss.html#isolate may help
narrow it down a bit. Basically you are looking for what works and what
doesn't, then you can find out what is not installed or what is broken.

There is not a single solution to this problem. Your answer will depend on
what exactly doesn't work. DirectX, third party codec's, sound card
drivers, video card drivers, and many other things can cause this.

I also noticed at the MSFT WMP Knowledge Center

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/knowledgecenter/mediaadvice/0061.mspx#EV



Why do I get error 8007007E ("The specified module could not be found") when
I use the Player?

Windows Media Player relies on separate software components to perform
various functions (for example, to play DVDs, it requires that separate
DVD-decoder software be installed, and to burn CDs, the current drivers for
your CD burner must be installed). This error tells you that the Player is
trying access a module (a .dll file) for one of these components, and it's
either not registered, damaged, or missing.

You may want to post this up on the WMP group, where Zack Robinson sometimes
hangs (a PM on the MSFT WMP team).

Try updating or replacing the sound card driver if there is no update.
