Media Player Classic encountered an error

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I just started to use Media Player Classic on Windows 7 Operating System but when I try to play any media file and attempt to save it, the following error message displays on the screen. I just closed the Media Player Classic and restarted again but no effect took place. How can I resolve this issue as I have tried many times to fix it. Please suggest me another best way to resolve this problem. Thanks in advance.

In order to resolve this try these things:

  • Disable ‘Overlay Mixer’ under Output Settings: To disable this setting, follow following steps:

o   In the ‘View’, go to ‘Options’

o   From the left panel select ‘Output’ and make sure that ‘Overlay Mixer’ is unchecked.


  • DirectX Version should be at least 9 or above: Also: You should be using at least DirectX 9 version on your machine/ computer system. In order to check the version of DirectX installed:

    • Click ‘Windows Key + R’ from the keyboard
    • Write 'dxdiag' without quotes and press enter to access ‘DirectX Diagnostic Tool’ and view the installed DirectX version.
