View Full Version : Need Help With Media Player
03-02-2011, 06:44 PM
As tittle says I am having some trouble playing mkv files on my laptop.
This happens every time I play a mkv file
I can understand seeing that if the file was damaged or incompete but that is not the case. Ive also tried both K lite codec and CCCP and neither helped.
I also tried playing the files in GOM Player and the video was fine. What happened in
Home Media Player diddn't happen with GOM Player.
Completely out of ideas at this point so needing some help on how to fix.

Sounds like you still have a codec issue or that your media card is having a hard time reading the file if it was made at a really high bitrate like HD..
Here was a place I found that was talking about what sounds like your issue.. since I'm not sure by the picture if it was lag issue or a pixel issue.
You might try this, even if you think it might not be corrupted or damaged it might have been.. but if your original file has missing file headers. then this app can't help
A lot of the original players on the computer that come with it, is missing a lot of codec and not much updates to fix it.. I normally have good results using VLC player -- what would not work on my computer with QT, WMP and others -- would work in this..
But since I've been on a MAC computer for a while I can only guess -- but try those and see if that helps any..

Checked out the first one and seems a lot like the problem I am having.
But still kinda confused cause Gom player will play the file just fine without that problem occurring so wouldn't that mean it's not a codec issue?

I think when I read the one website.. it might be a updated codec code that might be causing the problem or at least messing with it.. Most of the time your players on the computer are more touchy..
I think when someone made the file -- the file was made by a fasted computer or a different media card and you don't have the media on your computer like the one that made the file.
But since it played on your GOM player -- it makes me think that it might still be a codec issue with the main player on the computer and that your GOM player is either using an older codec that still works and your home media player has missing somehow or messed up for some reason..

hmmm thanks. now its time to figure out witch of the codec problems it is then.

Looking at the pics on preview it looks like you haven't download the whole file or its been corrupted on download to me.
Try downloading again or getting of different site see if that helps.
when I got that problem a long time ago believe it was a slightly corrupted file.
What windows are you using?
Did download from site or disk?
Check size make sure its all there.
Also check the computer its self make sure got no problems with it.
Did this happen on offer videos or just one video?
If got another computer check it on that one does it work on offer computer?
I use CCCP my self too and thing its the best video player I ever got couldn't even play mkv files before that.

Uninstalled K lite then reinstalled and nothing happened
Then I went and tried CCCP and still nothing.
So not too sure if it is a problem of a missing codec.
What windows are you using? Vista Basic 32 bit
Did download from site or disk? Site
Did this happen on offer videos or just one video? All mkv videos. I tend to only download HD anime. Tried playing different files on different series all worked fine on my desktop
before when I played them and they still work it seems after.
If got another computer check it on that one does it. Files play just fine on my desktop.

I have the same issues, it's due in part to gfx card not having enough processing power. While I can watch 720p videos, watching 1080p gives me the errors. I'm pretty sure you're issues are coming from your gfx card & not your software. If you have these issues with BD videos then I'd suggest buying a new card.

I tried many of the same things that you have. Using VLC, MPlayer, SMPlayer, CCCP, etc etc.. and it all lead to the same place.. me having to get another graphics card. But, since my gfx card is build in to my laptop I'm not going to be able to do that. :(

Same here =\

Which is completely a burn on our parts. I need to purchase a whole new laptop.. but I just don't see that happening any time soon.

I also had this problem before, but to solve it I installed "K-Lite_Codec_Pack_690_Mega"
K-Lite Codec Pack.
Note that when you install new codec packs you have to remove existing ones (in start, control panel and then install/remove programs). And with this codec pack you get a whole lot of codecs, and it works perfectly with Media Player Classic that's in the package.

Why not use the most recent version?
03-05-2011, 06:27 PM
So is it the solution to it in the Codecs or the Media Player?

MPC = Best Winblows video player in my opinion. And if you have not installed K-Lite I suggest you do so. Of course I suggest asking the video encoder what codecs you should be using.. unless it's with all your videos.

MPC = Media player classic.. I second on this but also I have used KMplayer 3.0 CUDA build something like Russian build it beta not officially released but Rocks really rocks contains many plugins feature as well..
The KMPlayer 126.96.36.1998 CUDA CyberLink ATI Stream Multil
I have installed this version I wonder If I face any problem or not but not till yet :)

I had the same problem with my laptop. Turning down video acceleration in the media player options fixed it for me.
