Windows Media Player Error: C00D119A

April 3rd, 2008 by Markus Leave a reply »

If there is one thing I get really frustrated over on my computer is when my windows media player won’t play a video because of some error. This happened to me the other day when I got a C00D119A error, so today I thought I’d talk about what this annoying error is and how to resolve it.

You will get a C00D119A error when a required codec is not installed on your computer, a codec is software that the Player uses to decompress a file before playing it. In most cases your media player will automatically download the codec so that all clips can be played, but occasionally it does not.

The reason your computer would not automatically download the codec is that the security levels on your machine are so high that it just cannot download it. So to fix this problem you must adjust your internet security settings to allow codecs to be downloaded. To do this follow these steps or watch this clip;

  • Click on your Control Panel
  • Click Internet Options
  • Click the Security tab
  • In the Security level for this zone area, click medium Level
  • Click Apply
  • Click OK
