12TONEt2.WAV
« on: September 21, 2010, 07:30:25 AM »
I have an animation (.avi) that seems to require 12TONEt2.WAV. My various media players will crash/close when I try to play it. The reason I keep trying is that it played without any problems on my previous computer, XP, but just not now on Vista.

The error message from Media Player Classic Home Cinema:

Close

I have no idea what all this is telling.

When I searched the Internet, I was surprised to see that a couple of guys have had the same problem, (so the file 12TONEt2.WAV must be known), but no-one SOLVED the problem, and there seems not to be any "12TONEt2.WAV" to download from anywhere. But maybe the problem is something different than merely missing a file?

Do you have a 12TONEt2.WAV that I can have a copy of, please?

Your .avi works here on Windows 7 with mpc-hc.

But I have the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack that includes MPC-HC.
Latest version of MPC-HC is 1.4.

not that it helps, but it works on my win 7 too. i don't have any specific codec packs installed - just VLC Media Player.

I also used to have K-Lite, on XP, so I installed it just now (including MPC-HC). The 12-seconds video avi file will now play with sound, Thank You!, BUT the video part is suddenly broken/unstable. I had no problem watching a 100MB video, in sync, but in this little 12-seconds clock video the player misses to show all of the seconds ("all", not "any"; sometimes 2,5, and 7, sometimes maybe 3, and 8.). AFAIK there is no option for "video acceleration" or whatever it is called. Is there some setting I must adjust in order to literally SEE ALL of this little 12-seconds movie?
 :tellme:

---
It was disturbing to install K-Lite. It gave me a looong series of warnings about old codecs that it suggested to remove. I clicked Okay, so I am expecting at least one other program to now be useless!

(sorry, again, this won't help - but VLC plays the entire movie without any missing seconds. could you swap media players? or is that not an option?)

Thanks, nudone, that did the trick.  :up:

But I find it a little strange that the clock now is displayed in different colours than before!?

I have had VideoLAN installed a couple of times before, but is not a huge fan of it. One thing about it that I dislike above all is the unbelievable UGLY icon! What the..., and so on, where they thinking?!!! Edited: and if I minimize to sys-tray, there will even be TWO of these motherehh.. ugly things! Well, VLC is playing, and that must be a good enough reason to keep it.

Thanks to both of you!

i agree, VLC is pretty ugly in the icon department (and a few other areas). maybe you'd prefer KMPlayer.

i'd still be using that program (KMPLayer) if it provided background window shadow in Windows 7. Which, I admit, is a pretty poor reason to stop using a program - especially when i've considered it the best media player for several years now. But VLC has the background shadow - so it stays for now.

which one of the two KMPlayers is it, nudone?
Edited: oh, you didn't mean KLMPlayer!?

Edit_2:
KMPlayer is maybe too big for my taste, a "media center", and has not been updated for a year.

Regardless I bet KMPlayer will play the file in question. Definitely do yourself a favor and check it out. :up:

Last version of KMPlayer is 3.0.0.1438 (??) though you wouldn't know it from most sites which list 2.9.4.1438.

http://www.kmplayer....owthread.php?t=17274

Or maybe KMPlayer's successor Daum PotPlayer is now the way to go? :-\ Don't really know--I still have an older version of KMPlayer and it plays everything I've ever thrown at it.

hmm, maybe KMPlayer claims to be a media center - i've never noticed that. it does install and first open up with some kind of media library window, but i close it and never encounter it again during everyday use. to me, KMPlayer just looks like a typical video (or "media" as it also does audio) player.

and, as sajman99 says, the older versions of the program seem to work fine. i hardly ever bother to udpate it and i can't remember the last time it wouldn't play a file.

(i'll have to check out PotPlayer.)

Yep, I used to install specialized players just for .flv and .swf. For some reason, VLC was kinda inconsistent with certain file types. Since discovering KMPlayer some years ago, I no longer have need for those specialized players. Good grief, KMPlayer will even display graphics files!

It was disturbing to install K-Lite. It gave me a looong series of warnings about old codecs that it suggested to remove. I clicked Okay, so I am expecting at least one other program to now be useless!

Also, with KMPlayer you can avoid installing an external codec pack. Many folks use and recommend K-Lite, but I'd just as soon avoid it if at all possible. Long ago I had codec conflicts which created quite a mess, and I haven't forgotten that nightmare.

I must say, KMPlayer has helped a lot, solving the icon issue:

Hey, that does look cool with KMPlayer's distinctive icons. I didn't even know about that aspect. I've still got my music icons set to an older version of Jet Audio.

I've got VLC Media Player too, and I agree about its icon--never liked it at all (ug-leeee! ;D).

MP3ext

One problem is, that  the author already five years ago announced that he wouldn't be spending more time on this program of his, MP3ext, meaning that it hasn't been updated for Vista. Nevertheless it works okay with my Vista.

Another problem is a little worse: The various third party MP3 encoders that I have used are not fully being recognized by MP3ext, meaning that a number of, say, 256 kbps files, are showned as "Ext", which basically means MP3, but something may be wrong, and the sample frequency is unknown. However, I assume this also is due to the encoders.

In general, I can only recommend this program if you install this one first, and then install a newer / better MP3 "tool-tip" program like MediaInfo or what you have.

-until now. It seems KMPlayer doesn't support .M4V video format.

sorry; the first video was broken. M4V is supported.  :up:

Oh, good to know it was a false alarm. It would be sad for your experience with KMPlayer to end on a sour note:D
