    APE-10 Video does not play in WMP


      I created a video in HD 720p/30 MPEG-2 format, but it will not play in Windows Media Player 11 or Windows Media Center.


      WMP reports: 'This video will not open. It may have been created with a codec that is not supported by WMP. Contact codec provider'. So here I am.


      Video/audio plays fine in DivX player.


      I created the same video in MPEG-2 Std DVD, and it played fine, just not the quality I wanted.


      Are there codecs for this format available for WMP that are not included in APE-10, or Windows 7 Ultimate? If so how do I get and install them so the video will play in WMP.

          That leads me to think that you somehow used divx inside that mpeg wrapper


          But, to be sure, analyze the file and report back

            I do not use DivX for anything. It is just a player on my computer, I use when I can't open something in WMP. DivX usually opens anything.


            Here is the report file from Mediainfo on the file in question. Not sure what 'MPEG-PS' is but I do not see any reference to DivX.

            Can you tell anything from this?
