C00D1199 Error



This error message that Windows media Player generates is a common one.

Hopefully this short article will explain the issue you may be having a and the workable solution to error C00D1199:

This error occurs when there is a problem with the audio or media file itself.

Common reasons for this error include:


#1 - The file is corrupted (although, in this case, you're more likely to see error code C00D080D).

#2 - The file type is not supported by Windows Media Player. For a list of file types (formats) that are supported by the Player, click here, e.g. you are trying to play a Real audio file and so will need the Real Audio player, or you are trying to play a .mov file and so will need the Apple media player.

#3 - The file type is supported by the Player, but the file was compressed by using a codec that is not supported by the Player. For more information about correcting codec issues, see the article "Codecs for Windows Media Player"

#4 - The file type is supported, but you are trying to play it in a way that is not supported by the Player. For example, you might have tried to drag a DVD file with a .vob extension from a DVD to the Windows Media Player icon. Or you might have tried to open a .vob file by clicking Open on the File menu.

#5 - You are trying to play one part of a multipart file. Use a newsreader or other program to combine the files, and then try again to resolve error C00D1199

#6 - You are trying to play a DVD and do not have a DVD plugin for Windows Media Player.

Windows Media Player DVD Decoder for C00D1199

Several major software companies have created a small piece of software called a "plugin" that you can purchase to make Windows Media Player play your DVDs.

(The reason they are not free is that a "royalty" has to be paid each time the DVD Decoder is installed on a PC, to the folks who own the MPEG-2 format - and no its not Microsoft!).
