Keywords: mp3 WMP8 silence windows XP
I just happened to notice this yesterday. Roughly 30% of the mp3 files I d/l
from say, WinMX , simply don't play under Win XP and WMP 8. These same files
will play fine under Win 98SE (under one of the many progs I use like Media
Jukebox, Windows CD player, etc). However, under XP when I go to play some
files, all I get is silence. WMP displays the name and artist of the mp3, and
the little bar at the bottom moves to the right as if the file is being played,
but as I said, all you get is silence.
Can someone please enlighten to me as to why this is happening? Obviously, this
is another fine M$ "enhance" under the XP OS, but I'd like to know what the deal
is anyway. TIA!
