    Correct. Is there a specific reason you choose WMP? There are much better alternatives out there.

      well there is a reason. my kmplayer doesnt play hd videos and vlcplayer got a problem with volume i.e at 100% it does not give full volume as it should and someone told me not to use vlc at 200%, thats why i have to use head-ons. this is the readon i m looking for anyother media player:(

        Did you try to set the audio to Stereo 2 channel? Sometimes it play videos on 5.1 but if you don't have all the components, it'll be a very weak sound. Try Right click on the picture then "Audio" then play around with the "Audio Channels" and "Audio Device." This is especially true with HD movies as well because it can contain many channels.

    Just don't use Windows Media Player! Instead use Media Player Classic or VLC Media Player... Of course, if you want both good video, audio & subtitle quality!
