Default Windows Media Player Problems On Network

Hi all

We are having a major problem with Windows Media Player on a Network.

Computer - HP Compaq Evo D510s
O/S - WINDOWS 2000

Windows Media Player will not play anything mp3s, video or even cd's when logged on as a normal user, i think its trying to download/install a codec or something but normal users cant install.

When logged on as administrator it will play perfect.

We have different computers on the network and they work fine and dont seem to have the same problem as the D510s.

Any Ideas Please

Thanks

Michael

This is because Windows 2000 limited users cant install anything. You will have to give those PC's the codec packages on the PC itself in order for them to play the media. Without the rights on those PC to use the codecs or to downlaod them from the network they will never work.

Free-Codecs.com : Download K-Lite Codec Pack 3.6.5 FULL, K-Lite Codec Pack 3.6.5 STANDARD, K-Lite Codec Pack 3.6.5 BASIC : K-Lite Codec Pack is a collection of codecs and related tools
Combined Community Codec Pack
AC3Filter

That is your best options for codecs. If the codec is not in one of those 3 packages then it is a very rare codec. As those 3 packs cover just about 99% of all codecs out there.
