For some reason, which is unknown, I keep getting an error message when calling FSOUND_Stream_Play or PlayEX, it says that I am missing a required Media Player Codec but still plays the song perfectly. Ive reinstalled all of the mediaplayer codecs but it still gives me the error. I’m irritated so I figured I might ask Brett, or someone else that might know the answer. Thanks!

Would showing you one of the MP3’s help? If it is giving me the error for all of the MP3’s that I try than the chance that it being a problem with the file is extremely less than the chance of it being a problem with FMOD. It’s really agrivating because nothing I do seems to change the problem. It could possibly be a bug in the stdcall version of FMOD, because I dont get any problem playing files in the C++ example.

Hmm, it is a strange problem isnt it! It is quite possibly a problem with my computer but I just wanted to see if FMOD could be the cause of this, and from what you’ve told me FMOD should use its own decoder for MP3’s and leave the windows codecs alone. But what doesnt make sense is that the C++ example has no problem. Heres one of the MP3’s:

Well, thanks for your help. I’m very grateful that you have exhausted your efforts in looking into my problem! :D. As soon as I’m confident enough in C++ I’m going to switch over and stop using VB because it’s just terrible, maybe VB.NET is better but I haven’t used .NET and I havent heard many good things about it. Anyways, thanks again.

I had this problem also, but only when I tried to play wma files.
It also didnt help to reinstall the media player codecs, only reinstalling Windows solved the problem.

Excuse Android_Paranoid : I expressed myself bad. With the last version of Windows Media Player meant the last one that I have me. I also have Windows 98 and the version of which spoke it was the 7.0 . With this it was that I solved that problem…

hmmm, well, I dont really want to reinstall windows… Well that sucks! For me it happens on MP3 files and WMA files, but the song still plays, what I dont understand is if the required codecs arent installed than how does FMOD still playback the music???

Yeah, I’m getting a message box saying “The required media player codecs are not installed” which would suggest that the file wouldnt play correctly but for some reason it still plays fine! ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s just weird that it would tell me that but still be able to play the file. And I even reinstalled the codecs but that didnt affect the problem. I’m all out of options Brett! :( lol.

This part in particular I noticed:
[b:3cm8rqsm]* Your Internet security options are set too high to enable decompressors to be downloaded.[/b:3cm8rqsm]

Paranoid, you may want to check your IE security tab–make sure the slider for the Internet zone is on “medium.”

[/quote:3kd4q5ih]

Bruce: I believe this means that if your internet security options are set too high the WMP update program wont be able to donwload the decompressors. What I did was I went to the WMP website and found the entire codec package and installed that, which wouldn’t apply to the problem with high interent security options.

Colores: I can’t install the latest version of WMP (WMP 9) because I’m running Windows 98, WMP 9 can only be installed on Windows 98 SE and greater.

It happened with MP3 and WMA, but it didnt just happen on some MP3’s, it happened on over 20 MP3’s that I tested it with to see if it was something wrong with the file. So I dont think that it has to do with the files Im trying to play!! ๐Ÿ˜€
