Windows media player 11 not validating
To enable assembly bind failure logging, set the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion! Note: There is some performance penalty associated with assembly bind failure logging.When Windows Vista was first launched, Microsoft included a new multimedia player: Windows Media Player 11.Occasionally, Windows Media Player 11 (WMP 11 or WMP11) that comes with Windows Vista has problem streaming and playing media contents, be it audio or video, from Internet that use MMS protocol.When click on a link on web page that features URL: MMS protocol, or when watching a embedded video clip streaming via MMS protocol, the Windows Media Player does not play the movie, anime, trailer and other video contents, or another media player been launched to stream and playback the video instead.The correct setting to let WMP 11 handles all MMS streaming media contents should looks like figure below: Here’s another solution to fix WMP cannot stream or play MMS media on unsupported protocol.Windows Media Player 11 is a media player by Microsoft.Disassociation from WMP or association of MMS protocol with another media player causes Windows doesn’t know what to do when dealing with URL starts with MMS://, or start the video playback in other media player.
Microsoft Windows Media Runtime, as used in Direct Show WMA Voice Codec, Windows Media Audio Voice Decoder, and Audio Compression Manager (ACM), does not properly process Advanced Systems Format (ASF) files, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted audio file that uses the Windows Media Speech codec, aka "Windows Media Runtime Voice Sample Rate Vulnerability." Integer overflow in in the Direct Show framework in Microsoft Windows Media Player (WMP) 9, 10, and 11, including 11.0.5721.5260, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted (1) WAV, (2) SND, or (3) MID file.The Windows Media Player 11 installation will not validate unless the OS is set to win2003, and will not install unless it is set to winxp.The trick is to switch to winxp just after it validates, and this is included in the script.Windows Media Player 11 (WMP11) cannot be used to play MMS streaming video contents by default, when clicked on URL link location or on web pages embedded with video clips because of program association with the URL: MMS protocol has been altered and disassociated.Windows Vista, and also Windows XP checks program association that been linked with MMS protocol to determine its next course of action and uses which associated program to play the media.
