    There are a whole myriad of codec plugins. You have WM 6.0 running on an original Q? :) -Q

    tried that

    i tried tcpmp but it didnt play any files i have. what version should i use and what if any plugins do i use. the version i tried is TCPMP-0.72RC1-ARM-PPC-recomp-03 plus the flash video bundle. after i installed it, i checked all the file types it is supposed to play and it recognized the file, but would not play it.

    this may solve it
    from xda:
    "Some people are having issues getting WMV9 in TCPMP working with WM6, particularly those of us who are trying to use TCPMP with Orb and are getting a nasty WMV9/WMA9 not supported error. This is because WM6 includes newer versions of the WMV and WMA codecs, which are named differently than WM5's codecs. Orb does work with WMP Mobile 10 and Conduits Pocket Player, but the video is incredibly jerky for some reason which I haven't been able to nail down yet, and I doubt I'll look into the matter anymore now that this works.

    The fix is simple...just drag the old WM5 codecs into your Windows/ directory and reinstall TCPMP. After that, you should be able to use TCPMP to watch your orb stream (Windows asx stream on Orb 2.0).

    I've included the codecs here in this post. This fix was tested using the Most Beautiful ROM. Let me know if it works for the other ROMs.

    Doc"

    gimme a sec uploading the codec now

    YOU HAVE THE WRONG TCPMP INSTALLED!

    You have the ppc version, which works fine for WM6.1, but for 6.0 and 5.0, you need the smartphone version!.

    TCPMP is the free version of the Core Player

    Agreed !! :) The Coreplayer IS far superior to TCPMP. Free or not, TCPMP doesn't hold a candle to Coreplayer. :) -Q
