|Putting it together: The first four bugs in WMP 10
Posted by Chris Montague on 05 September 2004
Here at WinBeta, we made a simple guide for you all to fix the first four bugs found in Windows Media Player 10. Yes, you can find all of these at Microsoft, but we simply put all the bugs on one page for your guys, in directions you can easily understand. Check out the link below for our guide to fix Windows Media Player 10.
In a very sloppy test for the final version of Windows Media Player 10, four bugs were found already, catching much of the public by surprise. Let’s take an in-depth look at the first four bugs.
The first bug in the series is the Error message when you try to synchronize video files in Windows Media Player 10. When you try to synchronize some Motion Pictures Expert Group 2 (MPEG2) or Audio Video Interleaved (AVI) video files in Microsoft Windows Media Player 10 to one of the following devices, the video file is not copied to the devices. The list of devices is first a portable Microsoft Media Center device, a Microsoft Pocket PC device, a smart phone device, and a video-capable device. To solve this problem, Microsoft suggests you contact your portable device vendor or decoder/codec vendor to inquire about the availability of an update that supports the conversion functionality in Windows Media Player 10.
The second bug is the WMAPro content that contains SAP with digital output plays for several seconds and then stops playing in Windows Media Player 10 The cause of this is When you play Microsoft Windows Media Audio Professional (WMAPro) content in Microsoft Windows Media Player 10, and the WMAPro content requires Output Protection Level (OPL) 200 (SAP with digital output), the content plays for several seconds and then stops playing. Microsoft suggests that you play WMAPro content that requires OPL 200 to a device that does not support S/PDIF.
The third bug is the "A security problem occurred" error message when you try to play content on a secure Web site in Windows Media Player 10. To resolve this problem, Microsoft suggests that you save the content to your local computer before you try to play it. To do this, right-click the content on the secure Web page, and then click Save Target As.
The forth and final bug (so far) is the Caption text is missing from the caption bar when you play a media clip in Windows Media Player 10 To solve this problem Microsoft suggests that you:
1. Start Windows Media Player 10.
2. On the Play menu, point to Captions and Subtitles, and then click On if Available.
3. Try playing the media clip again.
4. If the problem still occurs, click Options on the Tools menu.
5. On the Security tab, click to select the Show local captions when present check box, and then click OK.
This concludes WinBeta/Microsoft’s guide to fixing the first four problems in Windows Media Player 10. For any more help with these questions, please contact Microsoft for further support.
