How can the Windows Media Player 12 be made to play WVC210 .avi files?

Unanswered Question
May 10th, 2010

I just built a new computer and it won't play the motion captured videos of the WVC210. It has Windows 7 Home Premium as the operating system. My machines running XP play the WVC210 files GREAT. Is there a codec I can add to the WMP12 so that it will play the .avi files. I have 3 cameras around the property, 2 WVC210 and 1 WVC200. 1 camera has the audio turned off so switching to MP4 (no audio) made that work OK. But the camera in the office I need to have audio and would rather stick to WMP over something like VLC. VLC plays the files fine but I much prefer WMP. I'm hopeing to find out how to have Windows Media Player 12 play the .AVI files from the WVC210 cameras. Any Help??

I have this problem too.

There appears to be issues with codecs on WMP 12 and Windows 7

AND\OR your WMP is missing the necessary codecs.

Google the Net and you should find different things to try

for the WMP 12.

Troubleshoot problems in Windows Media Player

It looks like additional codecs may needed to download with WMP12 and windows 7

Media Feature Pack for Windows 7 N and Windows 7 KN (KB968211)

Information about the Multimedia file types that Windows Media Player supports

Another possible solution:

K-Lite Codec Pack 5.9.0 Full, Standard and Basic

I hope this helps let us know how it goes!

I am having the same issue.  Files play in Windows XP but do not play in an brand new HP windows 7 machine using Windows Media Player 12.   I'm fairly certain it is a codec issue.   I have downloaded the codecs recommended in the response above without any luck.

Please help. Sun, 10/09/2011 - 13:11

After installing the full version of the k-lite codec pack I was able to view teh avi files created by the camera.   I wish it were not so hard to find a codec.
