Media Player Classic shows error on Windows XP OS


Hello Todd,

There are some settings you can easily change in your Media Player Classic. Go to the View menu, and click on Options. Change the Output to  "VMR 9 (renderless)." Also, set both RealMedia Video and QuickTime Video to "DirectX9," as shown in the image below. Shut down Media Player, re-open, and try to perform the original action again.

RealMedia Video and QuickTime Video to DirectX9

If the above does not work, try to manually edit your Windows registry by selecting the Start menu, typing “regedit” in the Search box, and pressing the Enter key. Open the following folders in the order given: “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,” “Software,” “Microsoft,” “Windows,” and “Currentversion.”  Then, click on the  Run folder, followed by the “Media Player Classic Getcurrentimage Failed Hr 8000ffff” file. Delete this file and then reinstall it on your computer.
