I have Windows XP with Media Player 9 that can play my home made video encoded with Windows Media V7 but my client can't view the same video using Media Player 9 or 10.  What am I missing here?

Hello refined =)

Ask ur client to download and install this Codec Pack >> http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/format/codecdownload.aspx
He must be missing a required codec to play these movies.... if this doesn't solve the problem, plzz post the Exact error message which is given my WMP on ur client machine !!

Unclear about the end user environments, but this is important if in 98 or 98SE
Windows 98 SE Users: We recommend downloading Windows Media Player 9 Series.
Windows 98 Users: Please consider downloading this player, Windows Media Player 7.1. (The Windows Media Player 9 Series is not supported on your Operating System.)

Top notch!  Thank you very much for the good news and the fine grade.  We're happy to be of help to you.

I just got quite a surprise by revisiting this question, because when I was doing my postings I was all alone here; no other comments were entered.  Happens often when the page isn't refreshed and I'm exploring additional links prior to hitting the submit button.

Best wishes,
