karaoke files not playing
« on: July 30, 2015, 11:45:50 AM »
Hi guys......long time no speak. I'm having issues with a new windows 7 install not playing karaoke files.

Basically i hit play on a karaoke file and nothing happens.

Strangest thing is they worked when i first installed, but a week later have decided to not play.

Any ideas???

nevermind about the playlist thingy, i used the cleaner and reset. so show playlist wasnt turned on.

Still got the original issue with cdg files not playing though.

I did a system restore and it worked, but after a reboot it stopped again.

Driving me nuts this new install :(

Ok, so after the system restore, it works fine UNTIL i try the access engineer tab then the screen freezes and i have alt tab to get out then after re-opening videobox, cdg files wont work.

Thats great Stampy, here are the regedit settings...

Go to your windows start menue and select 'Run'

Type "regedit"

When the registry editor opens, navigate to...
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/MediaPlayer/Player/Extensions/.cdg

You need to make sure there are 2 key values in the ".cdg" subkey

1 "Permissions" with a value of 33 or 32
2 "Runtime" with a value of 1

See attached image below for clarity...
