Default Problem with media player classic- sort of know the problem but not sure what to do?

sponsored links
Could someone please help me,

I've been using media player classic for a while now and basically associated all multimedia files with the program, but recently i stumbled across the following problem:

I downloaded an avi which had an mp3 audio stream which i eventually found out was encoded using the fhg codec (i'm assuming thats the fraunhofer codec as opposed to the lame mp3 codec)- it wouldn't play in either media player classic or windows media player. I then reinstalled the klite codec pack (just the mp3 codec as it has the fraunhofer directshow filter).
It now plays in windows media player but not media player classic, this wasn't too much of a problem in itself as i could reencode it with the lame mp3 codec, but now i have just realised i have a load of mp3's that i hadn't listened to for a while which have the same problem.

Is there a a way of installing the fraunhofer direct show codec by itself (without getting a codec pack), and is there anyway of getting media player classic to use it:

this is the error output from media player classic

Stream 0

Media Type 0:
majortype: MEDIATYPE_Stream {E436EB83-524F-11CE-9F53-0020AF0BA770}

bTemporalCompression: 0
lSampleSize: 1
cbFormat: 0

and this is from windows media player,before i reinstalled the klite codec pack:

The audio codec identified by the format tag 55 is required to play this file.

any help would be greatly aprreciated

thanks very much

The fraunhofer direct show codec comes standard with windows.

If you want MPC to use a third party decoder, then simply disable the internal one. You may also use the filter overide function to force a decoder such as the Nero decoder which would otherwise not be loaded.
