View Full Version : Can't play FLAC files on WMP12

11-22-2009, 10:06 AM
Hi there,

I just installed Asset UPnP on my Windows Home Server in order to play FLAC files with Windows Media Player 12 on Windows 7. However, I can't get it to work.

Problems are:

Tracks are shown more than once. For example there are two instances of track 1, etc.
Neither MP3 nor FLAC files will play. WMP is very busy saying "Media Changing...". The message "Windows Media Player cannot play the file" appears. I did set the checkmark before "FLAC" in the AssetUPnP settings window. I tried multiple options (Wave, LPCM, MP3) but it doesn't really change anything.
Irregular behaviour when browsing the server from WMP12. Tracks appear and dissappear, some are shown twice whilst others are not.
There is a "Unknown Artist" which says "Disk 55,08 GB free of 56,32 GB". I don't expect this to show up here.

I hope someone can help, because I would to get this thing to work.

WMP12 is a huge step backwards on WMP11 as far as UPnP support is concerned, it will be Asset v3 before support for WMP12 (specifically targeted) is added.

Thanks Spoon,

It's a shame that Microsoft didn't pay more attention to this in the development of WMP12.

Does the current alpha release of Asset UPnP V3 include the WMP12 enhancements you mentioned?

I'm having the exact same problem. Any idea on when an updated version will correct this problem?

I'm currently not able to use Asset or RipNAS because of this problem.

Asset v3 works in WMP 12 now (in the beta section of this forum).
