Hello, When I try to play a video from a site I like (http://oabs.org/archives/blvd/2002blvdcoc.htm
) I get the error: "Windows Media Player cannot play, burn, rip, or sync the file because a required audio codec is not installed on your computer." I went to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926373
after searching the error. This MS article is difficult to understand and does not pertain to version 12. I am running Windows 7. I cannot find the checkbox:
Click the arrow below the Now Playing tab, and then click More Options.
Click the Player tab, and then select the Download codecs automatically check box
This option is not available on the options.
I can play the video if I open my XP virtual machine, but the video is very poor quality. It appears I need some sort of "codec" or software that will allow me to play older media player files on my windows 7 computer with media player 12.
Can anyone help? Thank you much. Mark88
