Videos on media player won’t work?

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

My new computer has a Windows 7 OS.

When I play some videos on my Media player, the video suddenly and randomly stop.

I already did try something to fix this, like:

Checking the RAM timings are in order;

Removing fancy add-ons and extra applications from my desktop,

I also tried several settings for advance sleep functions,

I already uninstalling other antivirus and remain the Windows Defender, installation of SP1,

And updating my drivers for BIOS, Graphics card and Sound Drivers.

All these didn’t work, what else do I have to do in order to solve the problem?

Hi Gary,

This are my solutions:


1. Try to install new media player if it works.

2. Uninstall/install your existing media player.

3. Update your media player.

Reinstall your operating systems if you done this process and still not working.

Install and update your drivers through internet.

Is the media that you're playing a complete and non-corrupted file?

It seems that you have covered many of the points of failure but wasn't able to make sure that the file has no parts missing.

If there are missing parts in the file (like if you're playing a ripped video and your copy has parts missing compared to the original; it's an incomplete file) then playing it would cause the media played to stop playing the file or skip some parts.

However, assuming you have a complete non-corrupted file, then the format of the file may not be totally supported by your media player. Try another media player like the VLC media player.

It supports almost all video formats and does not require additional codecs to be installed.
