can't play internet video links to eg. youtube, daily motion

Post by frer on Wed Oct 04, 2017 4:46 am

Hi,

I can't play any links, URLs, HTTP(s), neither in MPC-Classic nor Windows media player. I can play them in VLC player though. I can play any file format if it is already on my hard drive in all of the mentioned media players. I tried ticking and unticking FLV, AVI, MPEG etc in options-filters. I downloaded many different codec-packs, eg. K-lite codec, X code pack. I tried codec tweak tool to generate fix etc. Sherlock the codec detective still says though that my avi decompressor is broken. The driver name is quartz.dll and is in systerm32 folder. Code version 6.05.2600.6333. DrectShow Runtime. Micorosft Corporation. Last modified 2 jan 2013.

Windows media player gives the error message that either the file type is not supported or that necessary codec is missing.

The oldest MPC-HC version gives following error message when I try to play a youtube link: Cannot render the file;
Media player classic could not render some of the pins in the graph, you may not have the needed codecs or filter installed on the system. The following pin(s) failed to find a connectable filter:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nT1VDKpjktU::Output

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nT1VDKpjktU::Output

Media Type 0:
--------------------------
AM_MEDIA_TYPE: (Unknown)
majortype: MEDIATYPE_Stream {E436EB83-524F-11CE-9F53-0020AF0BA770}

bFixedSizeSamples: 1
bTemporalCompression: 0
lSampleSize: 1
cbFormat: 0

The newer versions just say: Failed to render the file.

OS: XP home edition version 2002 (SP3),  5.01.2600, direct x version 9.0c, WMI 2600.0000, ACM 5.00.0

Reason for using MPC-HC, a x3d software, is to avoid screen tearing which happens in x2D programs on windows XP, eg. VLC, google chrome, firefox, flash players, because it lacks v-sync in x2d.

Thanks for help in advance.

That is not a link to a video. That is a link to a webpage that contains a video. MPC-HC only supports direct video links.

You can extract the video link with youtube-dl:

I think I want to stream videos not download them. I tried all the real time streaming protocols in options, with all file extensions ticked and unticked but MPC-HC still says Failed to render the file. I restarted the MPC-HC each time I changed something in the options, is that necessary?

Ok I used the youtbe -dl program and got this answer, I tested the two hyper links in the text, and also all of the text, but it failed to render the file, so what part is the direct stream youtube link?:

Windows XP needs additional updates to properly support HTTPS in most applications.

You can use this registry tweak to get those updates through Windows Update:
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\WPA\PosReady]
"Installed"=dword:00000001

This registry code is already in the registry. I installed the updates for 2016 last year, so it's not that old and should be enough. The updater fails nowadays though to retrieve a list of updates, it just keeps searching for updates but never stops, I couldn't fix it.

It's a good software that downloaded the latest files, although no new ones from 2017 and the windows updater bug wasn't fixed. Fortunately I found SVPtube to extract stream links for MPC-HC player. How do I use Command Prompt to extract the stream link with youtube -dl? Maybe I should ask the developers. Thanks for help and have a nice day.
(update: I found Microsoft Update Catalog website, I searched for windows xp sp3 and found latest updates for manual download)
