.wmv files no longer play on Windows Media Player, get C00D11B1 error message.

I am running Vista Home Basic 32 bit and I was able to run just about any video on Windows Media Player, but suddenly today it stopped playing any .wmv files that I have saved or new ones I download.  All other formats still play including .mpg, .mpeg, and .avi.  I tried installing K-lite Codec Pack and its update but did not help.  When it installed it needed me to uninstall four different codec packs I had on my system, and at the end it listed a few links that it said were broken (I don't remember which ones.)  Before installing the Codec Pack I had not made any changes to my system.  My video and sound drivers are the most current versions.  The following is the support information for WMP.

Question Info

Last updated April 5, 2018 Views 3,592 Applies to:

Hi Ace531,


As a first step of troubleshooting, I would suggest you to update your sound driver by following the steps in Method 1.


Method 1: Windows Media Player C00D11B1


Note: The steps are also applicable to Windows Vista Media Player.


Method 2: Re-register wmvdecod.dll

Wmvdecod.dll is responsible for all your .wmv files to play on Windows Media Player. If .wmv files aren’t playing, then probably wmvdecod.dll file might have gone corrupted. I would suggest you to re-register wmvdecod.dll by following the steps mentioned below.

a.    Click on Start; in the start search type cmd.

b.    Right click on cmd.exe and choose to “Run as administrator”.

c.    Type the following commands and press Enter after typing each command.

Regsvr32 /u wmvdecod.dll

Regsvr32 wmvdecod.dll

      d.  Close the command prompt and then check if you’re able to play .wmv files.


Additional information:


FIX: Windows Media Player 11 cannot play WMV files that contain multiple video streams



Hope this information is helpful and let me know if you need any further assistance.
