multimedia question

  J B 15:04 20 Dec 05

At present I have Windows Media Player 10 installed and also Quicktime player. In the case of Quicktime I was told that I needed it for certain types of files of which I am clueless. Is there anything else that I need outside WMP and Quicktime, or should I get rid of Quicktime and install Media Player Classic V6, or does anyone have any other suggestions on what I should have as a matter of course along with WMP 10. Any idea's would be helpful, thanks. J.B.

I have windows media player installed which plays most of the music I want.

However, I've also got a simplified version of 'Real Player' (on a recent PC advisor CD) to play .ra or .ram extensions and to listen to streaming content from BBC.

I guess that's why you've been advised that you need quicktime in addition to windows media player.

Download the standard codecs pack from:

and install them. The pack supplies virtually every audio and video codec likely to be required in general use.

Also check in WMP's File Types from Tools>Options that all files are Enabled.
