Preferred Solution: Unsupported Video Type Invalid File Type in Windows 10 Twitter App

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

How do I search a directory for a file type, and have it only show files that aren't that file type.
For example, searching a directory for only .jpg, and have the search only show files that are not .jpg, such as .txt, .png, etc.

When trying to download songs to my mp3 player, using RealPlayer, after it goes through the steps on the screen and on the screen of the mp3 player it tells me it's an Unsupported Media Type. I'm trying to download songs to the mp3 player that have the extensions .wma and .mp3 What does this error message mean? How do I download songs successfully to my mp3 video player.
Thankyou

A:Unsupported Media Type? Mp3 Player

try just .mp3 your mp3 player probly does not support .wma as its not a mp3.

I made a video on my android tablet but when I transferred it to my computer, the file is a xsp format. and I am unable to play it on the computer. Is there a way to change the file type to be usable.
 

A:Changing video file type

I see no reference to a video format which uses the xsp extension. I see references to Auto Cad and a few programs which use it as a playlist.

What program was used to create it?

Hi, I have a pretty old computer running Windows 98 SE. A while ago I had to reinstall the OS and everything was working fine after that. Now, the user cannot open any file attachments that have music or video. We've tried Realplayer and Windows Media 7.1 and 9. I've tried uninstalling all of them and reinstalling all of them and I can't get anything to play. Cannot play a CD from them either. I even installed a different program called Quintessential and it does the same thing. All of the above mentioned programs open just fine, see the music or video file and then go to "connecting" or "opening" and lock the entire system up. Please help, this is driving me crazy! Like I said, its an old system, but it's been working with the exact same specs for years.

A:cannot play any type of video or music file

well, you said that u formated your computer, most likely u need the codecs to play video files. does it play ANY sounds? maybe ur drivers on the computer need to installed or upgraded. maybe when u formated it u moved ur computer around and unpluged a cable. if all eles fails get VLC media player (works without codecs)

Dear All,

I have a question regarding this product: http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/honestech-vhs-to-dvd-5-0-deluxe-17056588-pdt.html

Now, I'm wondering what type of file (eg .mp4 or .MPEG) the software will save my captured footage of the vhs tape, i need this as then if the files become .mp4 i can then put it into dvd architect (as it's more reliable/trustworthy with my experience).

so my question is " What type of file is the captured footage in and will it be compatible with dvd architect?"

Thanks

vanlutyens
 

A:Solved: What file type is the captured video saved as?

It will be compatible, because the Sony DVD architect (nice program by the way.) is compatible with all the extensions that you can use to export on Honestech VHS to DVD. Did this answer your question?

For reason(s) unknown to me, when I now select "thumbnails" or "tiles" from the View menu of my video files listing page, I am no longer getting thumbnail pictures embedded on the individual video files, just icons depicting what format file it is such as WMV, MPEG, etc.

I'd truly appreciate it if someone could inform me of what I need to do to reinstate the thumbnail pictures instead of the icons (see attachment for demo screen clip of video file type icons). It would make sorting through the video files a whole lot easier again.

Hi,

I'm running a Toshiba 200CDS Satelitte Laptop on Win95. I also have a Win98SE running Win98SE, i have no problems connecting with the PC to the ext. 56k modem (i am on it atm), but i thought i mite try to plug the modem into the W95 laptop. It dials the whole phone number, then disconnects saying somthing about 'Invalid Server Type' etc, so i go into where you select Server type, and select PPP for Win95 etc, but when i click OK, it says 'Error: You must select a server type', it doesn't matter which one I select it doesn't even recognise me clicking it,

Once it extracted, i went to Computer>Library>Documents>GameCube>Games>ISO>Zelda-the wind waker.iso ( where i extracted to) and i used PowerISO. When i tryed to open the file, it said the file format is invalid or unsupported. I tryed downloading it 2 more times but it did not work.

I've been getting messages saying windows can't open this type of file (exe, link,).

I've been having other issues as well. At the moment I only have access to the windows 8 start menu. I can't get to the desktop. When I was able to get to the desktop the only files I could open were MP3 files. I also noticed that all of the icons on the taskbar and most on the desktop ( all except folders, video, and MP3) were white/blank. I couldn't open any folders or the command prompt.

One other thing. Although I have access to the start menu, nothing happens when I click on the apps.

1st stop, look at imageres.dll, And take it from there. File Type Manager from Nirsoft is a nice little prog to help you find many, not all, icon/program associations.

A:Is default email account type deteremined by type of device?

Hello Hagridore and Welcome to Seven Forums!

No, I don't believe the problem is because it is a Laptop.
Email can be very confusing to setup with the different protocols such as POP3, IMAP, and MAPI.

Referring to "Outlook" can be confusing, as it can mean different things.
Outlook may mean the MS Office Outlook client email program, or an Outlook.com email address.
MS has created confusion here imho.
When you say "Outlook accounts" do you mean email accounts in the Outlook client program, or Outlook.com email address's, or both ?
What email client program are you using, such as MS Office Outlook, MS Windows Live Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird, ... ?
Also fwiw, for WEB (online) access, Hotmail accounts are being converted to the outlook "WEB format" now...just to make it more fun

From what I know, setting up an Outlook.com (or Hotmail) email address with IMAP does not work without a 3rd party paid solution.
MS uses their own proprietary MAPI protocol (or POP3) for hotmail/outlook email address's accessed in a client program.
If it is possible to use an Outlook(Hotmail) email account with IMAP in a client email program, I would like to know how!

When I delete a POP account (Windows Live Mail) I get a warning about messages that might be lost...
Did you get a warning message when you deleted the POP account?

edit:
I just looked at this again, and see it's in the Office forum.
So, can I assume you are using MS Office Outlook on all the PC's?
If so, what version(s)?
Also, who is the email provider such as Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, MS, ...?

You know when you right click something and hit properties, and in one of the fields it says "Type of File"? Like when you right click Program Files and it says it's a "File Folder". Well, I need a program that'll let me change those, preferably within that properties window, such as just typing it out or something.

The thing is, I need to change a file into a File Folder. Due to certain circumstances, I ended up changing a very important folder into a recycle bin file type, and I need to change it back. It still holds all the files, I can even still access the files in question via buttons on my IE toolbar and "open with". However, I can't see the folders or the files in that folder, it just shows a recycle bin and it's options. Any help is appreciated.

If I associate a file type with a program, the association works fine until I restart Windows. Strangely, some associations work while others don't. For instance:

.pdf works
.html/.htm works
.iso works
Proprietary types like .mmip (MediaMonkey) work
(Although I have not tried changing these associations)

Nothing else works. Video, audio, picture, text, compression, all revert to default after Windows restarts. File associations were working fine before I reinstalled Windows 2 or 3 weeks ago.

Running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (x64) on a Lenovo Z580.

Any thoughts?

EDIT:
Should probably mention that I've tried using both Default Programs and the associated program itself to set the association, and while both work, both revert back to the default setting (unassociated, or associated to the wrong program) after Windows restarts.

Hi, I've upgraded to Windows 10 at launch, but I've only recent ran into this problem:Before, I could change file association for any file type by either going into properties for the file and choose "change" in the "open with" section, or change it in the control panel/default programs/set associations.But recently, that completely ceased to function.When I open properties and click "change", nothing happens. The pop up that's supposed to appear to allow me to choose a program doesn't appear.Same thing happens when I click "change program" in the control panel/default programs screen.Without these, I cannot open certain types of files because they somehow won't open with the currently associated programs when I double click them.Please help...this essentially crippled my PC...

I keep losing the icons in Explorer, even with a fresh install of W7. It takes some time, but sooner or later they disappear. It's always Internet Explorer first (associated with .mht files) and now I've lost Chrome (associated with .htm).

Any ideas as to why this happens? Is there any fix you guys know of?

Rebuilding the W7 icon cache has not worked in the past.

Thanks.

A:Lost File Type Icons in Windows Explorer

Hello IveyLeaguer,

The icon cache would have no affect on file associations. They are two different animals.

The most common reason for file association issues is folks changing them using Open with.

If you like, you could use the tutorial below to quickly restore the default association of any file extension.Default File Type Associations - Restore
If you are sure that you or another user is not changing the file associations, then I would recommend to do a full scan of your system with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free to help make sure that your system is clean.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

This may have been a temporary glitch, but yesterday I opened File Explorer to get a PDF file I had stored away. I found the file, but the Adobe logo that normally appears next to it (I used the Details view) was missing, replaced by a blank white rectangle, and when I double-clicked the filename, nothing happened. I had been viewing PDF files earlier in the day without problems, but suddenly, it wouldn't work.

I rebooted the machine and the file type was set right, but I have a feeling I haven't seen the last of this problem. I didn't look specifically for the problem with other apps, but I have a mix of PDF and other types in the root Documents folder, and it seems to me that all the other files in that view were missing app logos, as well.

Has anyone else seen this?

A:How to know the type of MPEG a file is and a strange issue with windows movie maker

Download and install GSpot ( link in my sig), open GSpot and open one of the files - it will tell you a number of things: what container (mpeg1, mpeg2,.avi etc) has been used, what codec has been used and whether you have that codec available on your computer (this for both audio and video), pixel dimensions, fps and more.

Where did the file originate? from a camera? downloaded? a DVD?

Older versions of Windows Moviemaker don't support all codecs used by mpeg2 files - see this article from Microsoft - this is why your file only shows in the audio track of the timeline.

My suggestion would be to download and install the ffdshow-tryouts from here. This should allow decoding and re-encoding of mpeg1 & 2
You may then need to go to Tools>Options then click on the Compatability tab - there should then be a list of codecs/filters that have a little check box next to them - scroll down until you find ffdshow - there will be an ffdshow audio & an ffdshow video - tick both. Might need to do a restart after, can't remember - been a long time since using both XP and Moviemaker.

hope this helps

Hi Guys,

I have this really odd issue where whenever I play a video (either HTML5 embedded or Flash) my Logitech G510 'locks up' so i cant type anything on any window.

As soon as I pause or close the page with the video I can type again.

This happens on all 3 browsers I've got installed (Firefox, IE, Chrome).

What I've done so far:
Uninstall Flash (using the tool to remove every subfolder) and restarted.
Updated the Logitech G510 software.
Removed the HID drivers and rebooted (changed USB ports).
Rolled back to earliest System Restore point.

Any other ideas would be appreciated.

A:Solved: What type of video card ?

It uses a pci-e video card. Before you buy anything, I would check to see what power supply you have installed. Big box systems like hp, dell, etc come with a pw supply that is just enough to power the system as shipped. There is little or no upgrade "room"

You can probably get by with a basic video card however installing a high end card like a 4850 ati or 9800 nvidia is asking for problems.

This is the video card I want to upgrade to:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130378

I looked around and found these choices for Primary Video Adapter in the BIOS, and PCI was already selected. This is what it looked like in the BIOS:

[x] PCI
[_] Onboard
[_] PCI-E

My question is since I have an option of selecting PCI-E, does that mean my computer is capable of being upgraded to the video card I linked above?

A:What Type Of File Is This??

These files are part of an archive that have been split up. I use WinRar to extract the contents of split archives. Just right click the first file of the archive (.001) and select open with and select WinRar from the list of programs. When WinRar opens you then need to extract the contents to the location of your choice. Every archive I've ever extracted using this method has resulted in a BIN and ISO file that can be burned using Nero or other CD buring software. I'm not sure if Winzip will work but you can give it a shot.

Posted via Mobile Device
You would be better off using third party software that already does this. Plenty of them out there.
I personally would check the extension of each file using the cmd extensions of a for loop. then do an if statement for each file type you want to keep track of. then use a call statement to branch to a function that adds up the file sizes and number of files.

A:Changing a video card adapter type help.

Assuming HP didn't hide the option in the bios (and I wouldn't put it past them), have a good look around likely in the Advanced section under Chipset. If it is don't disable it quite yet, first boot back to Windows and uninstall the AMD driver through Programs and Features using the Catalyst Install Manager. Then restart and go into the bios and disable, and re-install the AMD driver using the latest,

Latest AMD Catalyst Video Driver for Windows 7

unless that is the one you already have.

P.S. What you're seeing shouldn't happen, but with the way HP likes to hide/disable/monkey around in general with bios settings I'm not really surprised that it did. When it works properly (the AMD onboard video with an AMD video card) you can actually use both at the same time for running up to 4 (or 5 depending on video card) monitors at a time.

I have found other postings on various websites that have described this exact problem I m having so I know this isn t a complete one working Windows and file not Windows default icons type" Updates "unkown of a kind fluke Windows default "unkown file type" icons and Windows Updates not working but have not found any solutions anywhere Almost all the icons on my system are showing the default icon for an quot unknown file type quot This is happening for all Office documents PDF files and also shortcuts to these files Some file types have retained their correct icon but not many For applications that are Windows default "unkown file type" icons and Windows Updates not working affected it is affecting both shortcuts to documents and to the application itself - for example all MS Word documents on the desktop as well as the shortcut to the program in the quot start quot menu However the original program file at C Program Files Microsoft Office Office winword exe shows the correct icon All of the icons still work fine - both a document and a shortcut to a document will call up the program and open the appropriate file in the application If that were the only problem I could live with it However at the same time that this happened I m finding that most Windows Upates won t install and other programs as well - like an update to the Adobe PDF reader All the updates that will install have been installed The rest say quot downloaded ready to install quot on the Windows Update page but when I try to install them it says quot installation failed quot at the end Most just fail to install but some - like Silverlight - throw a message during installation saying that it needs to find the msi installer file In the case of Silverlight if I try to install from the WindowsUpdate website it asks for the location of the Silverlight msi before it can continue I ve searched my entire system and it doesn t exist However if I go to quot add remove programs quot and try to uninstall the current version it won t uninstall - I get the same message Lastly I tried going to the Silverlight website and downloaded an entirely new exe installer to run Still no luck For Adobe I get a message that an update to the Adobe Reader is available It downloads but then I get an error during install and it aborts I get a reminder every few days about the update but it never installs I have tried a system restore to a point in time before this problem first happened with no success I ran a quot checkdisk quot and told it to fix issues and I ve tried running a quot registry cleaner quot program No luck with anything I ve done Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated nbsp

A:Windows default "unkown file type" icons and Windows Updates not working

HalfBakedLunatic, For the icon problem right click your Desktop, choose Properties, under the Settings tab change the Color Quality from 32 bit to 16 bit, click Apply/OK. Now go back and change the Color Quality from 16 bit to 32 bit, click Apply/OK. This will rebuild the iconcache.db file and may correct the icon problem.

I have a compact flash card that had a DCIM folder. The folder type has now changed to file only instead of file folder. What can I do to repair the file type. I have over 330 pictures in the folder that is now unaccessible.

The compact flash card was brought to me in this manner to attempt to fix.

Unsure what caused the file type to change.
 

A:File Type Problems

Try running Chkdsk on it: http://www.updatexp.com/windows-xp-chkdsk.html

If that doesn't work try a recovery program: http://www.pcinspector.de/smart_media_recovery/uk/welcome.htm

After you recover the info, if you can that is, I'd reformat the flash card in the camera its used in and that will redo the proper format and create the proper folders.

Is there a way of getting a URL put into a text file and changing the extension so it acts as a link to a web browser? If I recall, Internet Explorer used to store URLs in individual files, but I don't know if this is still the case. Can you help me?

A:Is there a type of file that contains a single URL?

It still works that way up to this day. Each favorite is in fact a separate file and those are just plain text files with the .url extension. When launching them on their own, they open the default browser with the address indicated within them.
Their content is trivial to understand:


Code:
[InternetShortcut]
URL=http://www.google.com
Just that suffices. They must be named with a .url extension for them to work, doable with notepad.

I accidentally cleared this checkbox and then saved the fiule, and when I went to find the option to turn it back on, I couldn't find it. Anyone know where it is? I found an article in the ms knowledge base that sort of applies to this, but not quite (http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;140991).

A:Always ask before opening this type of file?

well i thought i had fixed it, but i haven't.

i couldnt find any info on this so i had to ask here. i have winzip for zip files, and all zip files carried the winzip logo/icon. then i installed a program which had an unzip component and then all zip files took that icon, but are still selected as having winzip to be the default program to open with. i have since removed that program. how do i change the icons back to the winzip logo/icon? i know its petty but i liked the winzip icon better and it made it easier to find what i was looking for. thanx

Is there a way to transfer audio files from other file types for example Windows Media Audio file to mpeg layer-3? I have an mp3 player but a lot of the songs on my computer are not mp3 format, is there a way to change them over?

A:how to transfer to mp3 file type

Sure, lots of ways. dbPowerAmp is one way, you can also use WinAmp with the MP3 writing plugin to do the trick.

There are tons of other applications, those are just some that I've used.

A:change file type

You have to create a DVD-Video. You can do that with Windows Media Center, Nero (Nero Vision), Roxio, etc.

The inf file type was associated with notepad so I deleted it and when I edit the file type and click OK and try to edit it again it comes up blank. When I close folder options and reopen it INF is gone. Ideas?

A:cannot define INF file type

Sounds like you have effectively deleted the file type, IMO.

You can add it back by creating a "new" file type (.inf) and designating Notepad as the program that opens such files.
