    How can we play MSS1 codec file in windows media player 12. I am unable to
    play microsoft office livemeeting files which use MSS1 as video codec and
    undf as audio codec.Also there is no option such that media player 12
    automatically download the codec from microsoft codec store.Also there is no
    available download for this codec for media player 12

    I'm glad you mentioned both codecs. The video codec (microsoft screen
    video v7) should be backwards compatible with MS screen video v9 which
    is available in all modern WMP versions 9 and later.

    Microsoft codec download is princpially there to supply
    microsoft-sourced codecs, oe ones for which they have distribution
    rights.

    >Also there is no
    >available download for this codec for media player 12


    It's worth trying the Voxware MetaSound codec, but it's very old so
    I'd be surprised if it was supported at all in Windows 7 (it's not
    even available in VideoLAN player)

    I can't play the file in windows media player 12 and other media players such
    as vlc player which suggests that codec is not backward compatible with one
    found in latest wmp player. So how can i play the file.
    Thanks

  4. You're probably out of luck then. One last thing to try is to grab the
    Windows XP mode virtual PC, and try installing the codec in that using
    WMP9 up to WMP11 on XP, to at least get playback :

    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/default.aspx
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx

    Your CPU will need to have the hardware virtualisation feature to be
    able to run XP mode (it has other uses too so it's worth getting)

  6. I've got access to those archives.

    What's a typical technet URL which shows the issue ?

    I could see if anybody at their end has noticed they can't be played,
    if I can find repro content to make a case for updates to the codec
    used fo rthe videos...

  10. Are you somehow related to the original poster or the other 4 people
    who jumped on this thread randomly ?

    In the page below, there's a WMA and MP3 podcoast format - the WMA is
    using Windows Media Audio 9.1 32 kbps, 22 kHz, stereo 1-pass CBR,
    which is not the MSS-1 codec as reported by the original poster.

    The WMA9 should play correctly in all versions of WMP from WMP7 and
    later, without requiring any codec download (i.e. using native WMA
    playback)

    Cheers - Neil

    if I go to that link, and download the wmv file (Recording ID: 1032259652 ),
    and try to play it on w7 with media player 12.0.7600.16415, I get the message
    : Windows cannot play the media file because a required codec is not
    installed on your computer.

    not being an expert at this stuff, I open the file with Gspot2.7 to
    determine what codec is used and it says MSS1.

    I thought this was the same scenario as the original poster.

    I presumed it would be something simple missing in my configuration, and the
    original posters'.

  12. OK I see what you mean now - I could see the Audio links and thought
    that's what you were clicking on. After a tortous 7 step process to
    reach the video via registration for the event, the video dates from
    2004, when the world was a simpler place.

    The ACELP audio codec is long long since superceded by for example WMA
    voice, AAC+ and other formats, and is not provided with modern WMP or
    on the microsoft download servers.

    However WMP12 still enables plugin decoders of many types - in this
    case a DirectShow decoder is required due to the age of the codec.

    The VoiceAGE codec is (probably) orphaned and available from this page
    http://www.free-codecs.com/download/Acelp_net_Codec.htm

    Download and unzip the file to a suitable download folder, then
    *right-click* the Vista_Install_AcelpNET selected from the Vista link
    on the download page. Choose "Run as Administrator" for this to work.

    OK to "Do you want to install the VoiceAge ACELP.NET audio codec?"
    then you should see a popup "DLlRegisterServer in MFT_anet.dll
    succeeded"

    Following that, close and restart media player 12, and double click
    the livemeeting WMV file to play. The sound quality leaves a lot to be
    desired so I imagine it's not been worth them re-encoding it using a
    modern audio codec which everbody has.

    HTH
    Cheers - Neil

    yep.
    I was just chasing down that audio codec and was going to post the same link.
    I was chasing the mss1 trail earlier, but it was the audio codec.
    installed the acelp codec and it's working.

    much better.
    thanks.
