    Playing MP4 but Missing Codec 0x8007000e

    Morning all
    This has been an intermittent issue on this installation. Playing MP4 but Missing Codec 0x8007000e-2018-10-17_8-06-29.png
    It plays fine one minute but next time i'd get this.

    Also apps that need video or 3d display report that direct x is missing, whereas it wasn't at the beginning of the session.

    dxdiag reports no issues.

    VLC plays it fine, WMP plays it fine, but Windows Movies and TV does not. Ordinarily I'd say ok just skip the issue and go for either of the working alternatives but as mentioned above, this issue is deeper since other apps act as described.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi, suggest basics first:

    1. First check your disk(s):
    Download and run Hard Disk Sentinel (trial) (includes SSDs)
    (This gives exceptionally good text comments)
    Post a screenshot of its GUI using the Insert Image icon above your post.
    If all disks are reported as good, continue.

    2. Now check your file system:

    From an admin command or powershell prompt
    [Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
    chkdsk C: /F
    Your PC will need to restart.
    Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:

    3. If ok, then from an admin command or powershell prompt run

    If that fails, try post #2
    Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk - Windows 10 Forums

    or an in-place upgrade repair install which keeps all programs, data and most settings.

    Note: you must have an iso of the same base build and language as your existing Windows installation - freely downloadable.

    Hi, thanks, looking quite good.. SFC has successfully done some repairs- so it would be worth now checking your problem again in the hope it might have fixed something for you. No guarantees as to whether it will have fixed your exact problem, of course..
